Vitamin B covers a wide range of vitamins, which is why supplements are normally grouped as B-complex. This module will analyse illnesses and diseases associated with an increased need for vitamin B, the genes and what their variations mean. Focus will then briefly shift to dietary interventions that can be made in order to increase vitamin B in the body. Lastly, we’ll discuss misconceptions surrounding the role of folate and folic acid and its use in terms of your client’s health.
