According to Natural News, adding vitamins to your diet can help reduce feelings of depression, winter blues or seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Vitamin B12 encompasses a lot of nutrients under it. B12 is actually a generic term for a class of compounds called the cobalamins, and indeed, when one has vitamin B12 deficiency, it is more scientifically called cobalamin deficiency.

The ineffectiveness of Big Pharma’s cholesterol drugs was demonstrated recently by a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine which showed that niacin (a low-cost B vitamin) outperforms Merck’s drug Zetia for preventing the buildup of arterial plaque, a symptom of cardiovascular disease.
As the study reveals, Zetia failed miserably. Patients taking niacin showed a “significant shrinkage” in artery wall thickness, while those on Zetia showed no such improvement. At the same time, the rate of “cardiovascular events” in the niacin group was only one-fifth that in the Zetia group, demonstrating that niacin is far more effective at preventing heart attacks and other similar events than Zetia.
