What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition that is life-long, cannot be cured and can only be managed by careful food and drink intake and regular testing of blood sugar levels.
Diabetes is a result of the hormone insulin, secreted by the pancreas to break down glucose in the blood, not being produced enough to sufficiently break it down.
Who should take B vitamins?
There are 8 B vitamins in total, but the ones you might recognise the most are biotin, folate (folic acid) and vitamin B12.
You can also take a vitamin B complex which includes all of the recommended doses of all 8 in a single supplement.
Vitamin B impacts your energy levels, brain function, metabolism, and is especially important for pregnant and breastfeeding women as it aids fetal development and can reduce the risk of birth defects.
Taking vitamin B is important for older men, too, as it can increase testosterone levels which are thought to naturally decrease with age.
What are good sources of folic acid?
Folic acid is the manmade form of the B vitamin folate, sometimes referred to as vitamin B9 or folacin.
Folate is found in small amounts in lots of foods including broccoli, brussels sprouts, leafy green vegetables, peas, chickpeas, kidney beans and fortified breakfast cereals.
If you’re pregnant or trying to conceive, you should take a 400 microgram folic acid supplement every day until you’re 12 weeks pregnant.
