Dr. Cooper: My father was a practicing periodontist, and in his practice he became convinced of the benefits of nutrition and supplementation on gum health and periodontal disease.

B Vitamin Benefits

B vitamins are well regarded for their ability to provide your body energy. They play an important role in cellular metabolism. Additionally, organs that require high amounts of energy, such as the brain, heart and skin, especially benefit from appropriate vitamin B levels. Like many vitamins, B vitamins are essential for optimal health. Because the body cannot manufacture these nutrients, they must be obtained through diet and supplementation.

Consuming energy boosting vitamins is an Read More >>
