Veggie Diary

Health May 15, 2013


I have been a practicing vegetarian for the past year. Sadly enough it’s just because it makes me skinnier, no major cause or statement over here. So of course I was concerned about replacing my protein a with nuts, beans, and supplements. No matter how much peanut butter I ate I noticed myself becoming more tired and irritable, my skin was very itchy, and my hair was brittle. What was I doing wrong? I was neglecting B complex, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), cyanocobalamin (B12), folic acid and biotin. After starting a B complex supplement I noticed quick improvements in energy, mood and skin. The itchiness was the worst and made it difficult to run. Well, two miles later I’m happy and healthy.
