The B group – vitamins for nerve regeneration
The group of B vitamins play an important role among the essential nutrients, because the B vitamins are required by the dog’s body to maintain, optimally function and regenerate nerve cells and nerve cords. All B vitamins must be taken in by the dog through food and should there be a deficiency in these important vitamins due to an unbalanced diet of the dog, this can lead to various nervous disorders in the long term.
Especially with older dogs, their owners often observe that their dog shows various symptoms of nerve weakness, such as visual difficulties, abnormal movements, anxiety, nervousness, dementia or even incontinence. In old dogs, nerve performance and the ability to regenerate decrease as a side effect of the aging process, especially here a supply of the dog’s body with B vitamins is important
Which vitamins are in the B group?
The group of B vitamins includes several nutrients that meet each special task in the body of the dog. Thus, the dog owner can get an overview of the individual functions of these essential nutrients, there now follows a detailed listing of individual vitamins of the B group and their functions and effects.
Vitamin B1 is needed to extract energy from the ingested food from the body of the dog, which is passed using this essential vitamin in the nerve cells. This ensures that the cells of the nervous system are always supplied with a sufficient and constant amount of energy, which is absolutely essential for their proper operation.
The vitamin B2 is also actively involved in energy production in the body of the dog; this nutrient is needed especially for the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. In addition, this vitamin is responsible for ensuring the preservation of the optic nerve and thus the vision of the dog. Puppies need the vitamin B2 for optimal and healthy growth.
Vitamin B3 is generally required by the metabolism of dogs and ensures that all metabolic processes in the body of animals are working in an ideal degree. This also ensures that the nerve cells of the dogs are constantly supplied with an optimum amount of energy.
Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid, activates and controls the nerve metabolism of dogs, whereby firstly optimizes the energy supply of nerve cells and nerve fibers and secondly the growth processes of puppies can be regulated. In addition, this vitamin has an extremely positive effect on the maximum load capacity in relation to stress in dogs.
Vitamin B6 is required primarily for protein metabolism of the dog. Without this vitamin the dog’s body cannot gain energy from the proteins present in the food. Furthermore, this nutrient makes for a constant release of this energy in the nerve cells.
The nutrient called vitamin B12 helps the dog’s body to make red blood cells and also new nerve cells regularly. Therefore, this vitamin is a very important nutrient for both the nerve function and for the overall health of dogs.
The last vitamin B group is referred to as folic acid and has the important task to provide for the construction and maintenance of cells. This function refers primarily to both the blood cells, as well as on the nerve cells of the dogs.
