How Our Bodies Turn Food Into Energy and How Vitamin B Can Help

We all know our body gets its energy from food, but have you ever wondered how our body does it?


It goes through a process called the Krebs Cycle: a sequence of chemical conversions to produce Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) or simply called energy.

Think of the Krebs Cycle as the human body’s own version of a car engine. To drive a car forward or reverse, you need energy which is produced by the combustion or burning of fuel.

The Krebs Cycle is the body’s car engine, food is the fuel, and nutrients and vitamins would be the oil that optimizes energy production. It needs vitamins to function properly and one of these is Vitamin B. Every B Vitamin performs a significant function in the metabolism of fats, protein, and carbohydrates.

When food gets broken down, it produces ATP or energy through the Krebs cycle. Energy is an essential complex organic chemical that administers energy to drive processes in the body. With the help of Vitamin B, energy gets extracted from the food we eat.

Did you know that these B vitamins are not just crucial for breaking down food into fuel? They are also instrumental in transporting oxygen throughout your body and increasing your red-blood-cell production to keep your muscles functioning properly.

These B vitamins each have their functions. Vitamin B2, for example, breaks down the carbohydrates, protein, and fats in the food eat and convert them into glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids-the substances your body uses as fuel-- which gives you energy throughout the day.

Vitamin B6 also helps convert food to fuel and in addition, assists with muscle contractions that are crucial to physical activities. It also helps boost your mood and sleep by helping the body produce serotonin and melatonin, the hormones that improve these functions.

Vitamin B Complex includes B1 (thiamin or thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), and B12 (cobalamin). These Vitamin B components found in Multivitamins (Enervon) assist in the production of energy through the Krebs cycle.
