We do need vitamins – vital amines …
Vital to life – we can not make these and have to eat/ingest substances either with these in them, or have co-factors that allow us to digest them. Told that you have MTHFR? Trouble conceiving?
We need to take in all the B’s together ..
I have popped this all here will maybe tidy it up – do your own research – this is the start.

Vitamin B4 is a former designation given to several distinct chemical compounds, none of which is currently considered a true vitamin:
and MAGNESIUM – sounds like we have it all in Love Your Body Better . . and and and . . .
B10 – para amino benzoic acid – PABA Formerly known as vitamin R, vitamin B10 is best known for helping in the growth of microorganisms in the body. Per medasq.com, it also guards our skin from free radicals contained in the harmful chemicals found in air pollution and the sun’s ultraviolet rays that can potentially render our skin vulnerable to infections. This explains why PABA can be found as an ingredient in some sunscreen lotions.Vitamin B10’s role in the growth of microorganisms explains why, as a supplement, it can help heal irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastrointestinal distress, as well as a variety of inflammatory reactions. As a coenzyme, B10 also assists our cells in their optimal utilization of protein as well as protein metabolism and red blood cell formation. Other reported health benefits of B10 include acting as an anti-allergen for the skin, alleviating rheumatic fever, and as an anti-aging agent working to eliminate lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Food sources: Green leafy vegetables, whole grains, molasses, mushrooms, wheat germ, and eggs.
Vitamin B11 often works in tandem with B12 to contribute to the formation of DNA and RNA. It also is essential to the formation and growth of body tissues as well as the fetus’s brains and spinal cord during embryogenesis. Its other functions include being an element with red blood bodies and blood plasma, being used as an ingredient in some anti-acne creams, and benefiting in the treatment of foot related issues like psoriasis, corns, calluses, and numerous other skin afflictions.
Vitamin B11 is essential for production of new cells and important for the metabolism of homocysteine, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and possibly neurodegeneration. (Huntington’s)
Vitamin B11 (Pteryl-hepta-glutamic acid) is a form of Vitamin B9 (Folic acid), one of five folates necessary for humans, and now known as ‘chick growth factor. Vitamin B11, also called salicylic acid, comes from vitamin B9. It is an essential folate the body needs to work properly. Not a lot of information is available on this B-vitamin. We do know that it is involved with metabolizing fats and proteins. It is also important for the production of red blood cells. Vitamin B11 Deficiency Symptoms:
- Weight loss
- Lower Immunity
- Some types of cardiac conditions
- Growth Retardation
- Tiredness and fatigue
- Also seen feathering in chicks
- Sudden weight loss
- Loss of appetite
- Impaired growth in children
Food Source of Vitamin B11 – Vitamin B11 is present in both animal and plant kingdom.
- Animal sources: The sources from animal kingdom egg yolk, meat, liver, and poultry
- Plant sources: The sources from plants are oranges, potatoes, as well as green leafy vegetables such as spinach etc.
- green leafy vegetables
- whole grains
- wheat germ
Health Benefit of Vitamin B11 – This vitamin has been linked to various other benefits as well
- Involved in the creation of DNA and RNA
- Increases production of breast milk
- Helps increase desire to eat for those with a loss of appetite
- Acts as a pain killer
- Boosts immunity in children
- Aids in the fight against cancer
- While browsing skin lotions, you may notice certain brands advertise that they have salicylic as an ingredient, this is vitamin B11, which helps to exfoliate and remove excess skin.
- Another way vitamin B11 helps keep your skin healthy is by preventing acne. When used as a lotion, salicylic acid makes its way deep into your pores to clean out any clogged dirt and debris. Furthermore, this vitamin helps improve blood flow which helps clear pimples more quickly.
- Vitamin B11 in accompany with vitamin B12 take part in the formation of RNA and DNA,
- It is also necessary for the growth and in the formation of tissues of the body.
- Vitamin B11 is extremely essential and plays role in the formation of brains and the spinal cord in the fetus during embryogenesis.
- DNA and RNA syntheses
- Cell division
- Development of the fetus nervous system
- This vitamin is also an important element of the red blood bodies and blood plasma.
- Salicylic acid is used in the manufactures of certain creams for treating acne. It acts to correct the faulty desquamation function of the skin causing new growth off skin earlier while sloughing off the dead skin. It is found to penetrate the follicles, therefore, it is good and beneficial in the treatment of acne.
- Salicylic acid is also beneficial in the treatment of psoriasis, corns, dandruff, calluses, warts, and many more skin diseases
Food sources: Egg yolk, liver, meat and poultry, organs, potatoes, and green leafy vegetables such as spinach
B13 – orotic acid
urea cycle. Some research scientists have named orotic acid as vitamin B13. However, there is still a debate whether it is really a vitamin. It may help with the metabolism of vitamins B9 and B12.
In urea cycle disorder, carbamoyl phosphate and ornithine increase in the blood due to failing to convert into citrulline because of the deficiency of the enzyme ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC). Then excess carbamoyl phosphate converts into orotic acid. Functions of Orotic Acid:
- It assists the metabolism of vitamins B9 and B12.
- It may help with the absorption of calcium and magnesium.
- It is required for the production of DNA and RNA.
- It supports and maintains ATP production.
- It is necessary for normal function of the heart.
Food Sources and Absorption:Food sources of orotic acid are dairy products, organ meats such as liver and heart, whey, brewer`s yeast, carrots, parsnips, beetroot, artichoke, and turnips. Small amounts are produced in the body by intestinal bacteria. Dietary orotic acid is absorbed from the upper part of the small intestine into the blood stream. Athletic Benefits of Orotic Acid:
- It maintains ATP pool in the body by providing ribose.
- It may enhance the uptake of glucose and the restoration of glycogen stores.
- It may increase the uptake of creatine by the muscles.
- It converts into beta – alanine, which is the precursor of carnosine and anserine. They are potent “proton buffering agents” and delay fatigue and improve endurance in athletes by preventing from lactic acid build up. See “Carnosine” under the section of “Antioxidants”.
- It may augment muscle mass.
- It may aid recovery from overtraining syndrome.
Non – Athletic Benefits of Orotic Acid: The following conditions may benefit from orotic acid:
B14 – Pteridines is thought to be a combination of Vitamin B10 and Vitamin B11. Pteridines It has not been isolated to a specific substance. Currently, very little is known about Vitamin B14. It was isolated from wine and originally thought to be a metabolite of xanthopterin. However, biochemist Earl R. Norris disputed that xanthopterin was actually Vitamin B14.here is currently little knowledge about this vitamin B14. It was first isolated from wine. This vitamin is actually found to be a metabolite of xanthopterin. However, it was said by a biochemist Earl R. Norris xanthopterin was the Vitamin B14. It is thought to be similar to vitamin 10 and vitamin 11.
Deficiency Symptoms of Vitamin B14
- Deterioration of red blood cells

B1 – Watch here
B 5 pantothenic acid
It may well be that seeing a good naturopath not a doctor who is trained in drug therapy will mean that your entire body – not just the bits that bother you – will be scrutinized and restored holistically.
Who is at risk of B12 deficiency?
The most frequent cause of B12 deficiency is malabsorption, which may be caused by low stomach acid, a lack of intrinsic factor and/or suboptimal pancreatic, small intestinal or liver function. Those most at risk include:
- Those who have adopted a vegetarian, vegan or macrobiotic lifestyle
- The elderly and people with eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia
- Those taking certain medications, including laxatives, antacids and metformin, or those who have been exposed to nitrous oxide (oxidises B12 – can’t use it in the body – acute neurologic dysfunction – for all those who react with paralysis with GA)
- Pregnant and nursing mothers
- The offspring of those already deficient
- Heavy drinkers and smokers
- Those with high homocysteine
- Those with gastrotintestinal disorders, including autism, or those who have had gastric surgery
- Those taking high doses of folic acid
- Those with autoimmune disorders
How do we get B12? Unfortunately for all vegetarians – from meat.
And again here
These are diffuse and generalised – and not often looked into – as no drug is needed.
1- Burning / numbness tingling in feet and hands . . neuropathy .and is NOT normal.
2 – Smooth slightly swollen tongue, – Should not be glossy. Or too big for your mouth – not only Iodine/Yang Qi depletion . .
3 – Fatigue . .so general . .
4 – Slow thinking – is NOT aging – is malnutrition
5 – Problems with balance and gait.– again – not aging . .malnutrition
6 – Irritability – not only magnesium depletion
7 – Tinnitus – ringing in ears – not proper nerve function
8 – Depression – is likely to be lack of nutrients
AND then there is here
Symptoms – even more here .ABSORPTION
Gluten damaged intestinal lining – and B vitamins no longer synthesized there.
