And what is the intake of vitamin B per day for adolescents. Can excessive consumption of B vitamins have a bad effect? Sorry if the questions are many
Good evening Faridzi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vitamin B plays an important role for the body because of its function that helps growth, development, nervous system health, skin and eye health, hormones, and so on. Its many functions are also supported by the types of B vitamins that are not less, there are vitamin B1 (1 mg / day), B2 1.3 mg / day), B3 (17 mg / day), B5, B6 (1.4 mg / day), B7, B9 and B12 (0.2 mg / day). All of these types of vitamins have their own characteristics which you can find out by opening our article about B vitamins.
Lack of vitamin B levels in the body can be caused by several things, such as:
Lack of consumption of nutrients such as fruits, vegetables and meat that are rich in B vitamins
Thinning of the lining of the stomach
Bacterial infection of the digestive tract
Immune system disorders
So that the best effort to meet the needs of B vitamins in addition to consuming foods rich in B vitamins such as tomatoes, eggs, broccoli, brown rice, bananas, salmon, milk, and seeds is to overcome the above diseases, where the handling will vary depending on the disease. and the severity.
Then about whether consuming too much will be bad, of course it can. Conceptually, anything that is excessive is bad for the body, whatever it is. For example, excess vitamin B3 and B6 can cause poisoning, excess vitamin B5 can cause diarrhea, and so on.
In general, as long as you adopt a balanced diet, by always consuming vegetables and fruit, milk and well-processed meat every day, you will not lack any nutrients, not just vitamins. If you have a specific target weight or something similar, you can consult a nutritionist to find out what diet is best for you. So, hopefully it answers your question.
