Anonymous 1:23:00 AM Add Comment
You may have read about the importance of vitamin B in nearly any broad diet plan. The truth is that there are eight vitamins in the B group, which make a complex. The benefits from taking each one are different, but consuming all of them is considered to be healthy.

1. B1
The B1 vitamin is supporting the immune system and is also responsible for the breakdown of carbohydrates; therefore, the B1 consumption may decrease your fatigue level by bringing more energy from carbos.

2. B2 (riboflavin)
This one is an antioxidant, which decreases the damage dealt to skin cells. It also promotes the blood production and lowers the headache occurrences.

3. B3
It shares the responsibilities of the B1 vitamin but also boosts the level of good cholesterol. The B3 is recommended for those who drink regularly. Ironically, the overdosing damages the liver.  

4. B5 and B7
The B5 vitamin promotes healthy skin, reduces acne, and also decreases the thinning of hair. Experts from the best hair salons in New York recommend the B5 vitamin in conjunction with the B7, which decreases the brittleness of hair and nails.

5. B6
Besides supporting the red blood cells production, the B7 vitamin helps you to sleep well and avoid depression; however, the going above the normal dose leads to numbness in legs and arms.

6. B9 (folic acid)
The folic acid intake prevents anemia and slow memory loss. Pregnant women should consume 1.5 of their normal dose to prevent birth defects. Make sure your pregnant wife has a balanced diet. 

7. B12
One of the most essential vitamins in terms of body construction, the B12 vitamin is involved in DNA creation. It also keeps your nerve and blood cells healthy. Unfortunately for vegans, the B12 comes from meat products only, which means you need to add supplements to your diet. 

Consult with your physician about your daily doses of the vitamin B group. Consider blood examinations to check your vitamin level (and test your overall health as well).

While it is not hard to tell when you have a sore throat, you can’t identify the particular of soreness right away. The bacterial infection which develops in the throat is called strep and has its specific attributes. You can get a 100% guarantee you have a strep throat after medical examinations, but certain symptoms associated with strep throat can help you identify it. Furthermore, it is as easy as identifying a razor burn.

1. Throat symptoms
First of all, you should assess the level of pain you experience. Although the pain can be moderate in some cases, the pain caused by strep is generally severe. Furthermore, it is hard to get rid of the pain using some cold liquids and food. Nevertheless, the exceptions happen.
Another way to test out your throat is to try swallowing. Whether your pain is severe or moderate in the passive stance, it gets insane when you swallow.

2. Oral cavity symptoms
The first thing you can notice is the bad breath which is caused by the reproduction of the bacteria. The odor has no particular description, but it is a sign of bacteria multiplying right in your throat. You should also check your tongue for being covered with unusual red dot coating, which can be described as the strawberry would look like. These dots also appear to be inflamed, although they may differ in the hint of red. Another kind of red spots which appears on the soft and hard palate is called petechiae and is associated with strep throat.

3. Other symptoms
The lymph nodes become tender to touch and are notably swollen when you have a strep throat. If you can remember the rapidness of the illness to develop, you will notice that doesn’t take long for a strep throat to develop. It worsens quickly and without warnings. The average temperature for a strep throat is 101 degrees or higher. Although the temperature can be lower, it is more likely that the infection is viral in case you have a modest fever. 

Symptoms like fatigue, headaches, and nausea are also associated with a strep throat ,but they are too general to describe a specific malfunction. A rash caused by the streptococcus is called scarlatina, and is a sign of a severe case. It is a serious concern, and you should consider visiting a doctor as soon as possible.
