Understanding the different Vitamin B's and Vitamin C, with our detailed article below.
Indications: Childhood, adolescent growths, as well as pregnancy and lactation causes increase demand for Vitamin B2.
Signs of deficiency:
- Reddened, scaly, greasy, painful and itchy patches on the skin (especially around the nose, mouth, ears, the labia majora in females and the scortom in men)
- Painful fissures and cracks from the angles of the mouth (angular stomatitis) and on the lips. The tongue is smooth, purplish, and painful. Swollen, sore throat
- Redness, burning, and excessive tearing of the eyes, light sensitivity, Chronic deficiency can increase risk of developing cataract.
- Personality changes
- Anemia with decreased production of red blood cells
Uses: Energy production, Vitamin B2 (otherwise known as Riboflavin) is an essential part of the coenzymes, flavin mononucleotide9FMN and flavin-adenine dinucleotide (FAD). FADnand FMN play central roles in numerous metabolic pathways of carbohydrate, fatty acid and protein metabolism.
A cofactor of glutathione reductase, this enzyme helps, recycle oxidized glutathione, maintaining tissue antioxidant defenses.
Malabsorption of vitamin B2 occurs in tropical sprue, celiac disease, resection of the small intestine, gastrointestinal, biliary obstructions and chronic diarrhoea, including but not limited to infectious enteritis and irritable bowel syndrome.
Thyroid hormones, oral contraceptives, barbiturates and certain antibiotics can impair vitamin B2 status in the body. Including heavy alcohol consumption.
Vitamin B2 helps the liver detoxify chemicals, pesticides and other environmental toxins. It functions as an antioxidant throughout the body and may be especially important in the lenses of the eye (Ample intake of riboflavin can reduce the risk of developing cataract.)
Ample vitamin B2 intake maintains the health of the skin and mucus membranes. It may be beneficial in stomatitis, cheilosis, and skin eruptions and rashes.

Indications: Anemia, anxiety, depression, irritability, confusion, constant headaches, insomnia, painful fissures and cracks on the angle of the mouth & lips.

Individuals recovering from alcoholism, women taking oral contraceptives. Skin disorders, where eruptions and rashes occur, including acne and seborrheic dermatitis.
To treat food sensitivity and allergy to food additives and preservatives.
Uses: Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine primarily has importance in amino acid metabolism. Vitamin B6 converted in the body to its active form of pyridoxal-5-phosphate (PLP).
PLP plays a central role in the metabolism and interconversion of amino acids and the synthesis of new proteins. For example, collagen synthesis is dependent on Vitamin B6
It is vital for conversion of protein and carbohydrates stores into glucose to support blood sugar between meals (e.g. hypoglycemia conditions, adiposity conditions, obesity, fat stores which need help depleting).
It plays a central role in fat metabolism. It is important for synthesis of lipids that form the myelin sheath surrounding and protecting nerves.
It is essential for conversion of tryptophan to niacin. Including but not limited to the function of red blood cells. It is important in the hemoglobin synthesis and oxygen transport by red blood cells (increased oxygen to the cells, organs and body), Vitamin B6 is essential for the formation of several neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine and nor epinephrine.
It has multiple beneficial actions in the preservation and treatment of coronary heart disease and peripheral vascular disease. Bronchial asthma, reducing spasmodic episodes and children and adults.
Vitamin B6 Homeopathic Ampoules are available here:
Indications: Ageing in general, and prematurely. If the patient is on heartburn drugs, heavy alcohol consumption, if the stomach is producing low amounts of acid. Women on birth control pills have a high risk of not absorbing enough B12
If the diet is vegan or vegetarian, where it is difficult to obtain the required Vitamin B12, which is found in meat, eggs, dairy products & shellfish.
Most vegans and vegetarians will have a high deficiency of this vitamin.
The body can store Vitamin B12 for 3-5 years. Early symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency may appear gradually, these are; fatigue, breathlessness, muscle aches, dizziness, poor memory, lack of concentration. Including but not limited to; depression, anxiety, poor dental health, abnormal heart problems (palpitations) tingling & numbness.
If a deficiency of Vitamin B12 is left too long, it can cause anemia or pernicious anemia, in which their is reduced number of red blood cells and hemoglobin in the body.
Uses: Vitamin B12 is normally involved in the metabolism of each and every cell of the body. It plays a major role in the formation of blood cells, functioning of nervous system and the brain.
It is one of the water-soluble vitamins which means it circulates through the bloodstream
Homeopathic Vitamin B12 vs. Regular Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 as a potentized homeopathic remedy has an increased ability to increasing Vitamin B12 levels in the body due to its potentization processes.

- Inflamed and bleeding gums
- Joint stiffness
- Joint pain
Including but not limited to, Alzheimer's disease, burns, canter, chronic diarrhoea, diabetes, elevated serum cholesterol, nephrosis, severe trauma, surgical wounds, TB (Tuberculosis) chronic use of drugs such as aspirin and oral contraceptives. Regular cigarette smoking.
Vitamin C has various functions I the body. It helps in wound healing, burn, and fracture healing, acts as a antioxidant, and also helpful in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and steroids hormones. It enhances the absorption of iron and converts folic acid, a B vitamin, to an active form.
A powerful antioxidant. By preventing the uptake of oxygen by other molecules, it deters the destruction of tissue by unstable molecules. Vitamin C is more sensitive to oxidation than either vitamin E or vitamin A and will be oxidized before they are. Thus it is called antioxidants’ antioxidant.
Vitamin C is necessary in the formation of collagen, the strong fibrous protein in connective tissue. Both skin, blood vessels, soft dental structures, and scar tissue all contain collagen. Without vitamin C, collagen molecules are inadequately cross linked, resulting in weak tissue.
High concentration of Vitamin C is found in the adrenal glands. These are the organs that secrets adrenaline, the "fight or flight" hormone in times of stress. Vitamin C aids in the release of adrenaline from adrenal glands. Emotional and physical stress increased the body's need for Vitamin C by 3x - 4x
Folic acid conversion
Vitamin converts folic acid to an active form. For this reason, deficiency of vitamin c can lead to anemia due to inefficient use of iron and folic acid.
Cholesterol breakdown and excretion
The first key step in the breakdown of cholesterol depends on vitamin C. cholesterol levels in the liver and blood increase if vitamin C level is impaired.
Body and blood histamines levels
Vitamin C plays a role in controlling body and blood histamine levels, and blood histamines levels increase when vitamin C status is poor. High levels of histamines can aggravate allergies, asthma, stomach ulcers, and certain psychiatric disorders.
Vitamin C facilitates iron absorption. It acts with hydrochloric acid to keep iron in the more absorbable ferrous form.
