B-Complex Studied for Work Stress

In a new study, researchers reported that B-complex vitamins enhance mood and modulate psychological strain related to work stress. The study authors state that occupational stress is greater than ever in Western societies and impacts individuals and communities on many levels.

In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 60 subjects were supplemented with a B-complex multivitamin or placebo for 3 months. The subjects were assessed for work demands, personality traits, mood, and work strain at the beginning of the study and again after the supplementation period.

The study showed that the subjects who received the B-complex supplement reported enhanced mood and less personal strain compared to the placebo group, even after controlling for individual differences in personality and work demands.

The researchers state that this study demonstrates that 90 days of supplementation with a B-complex multivitamin modulates workplace stress.

They concluded that given the direct and indirect costs of workplace stress, these findings point to the utility of a cost-effective way to support mood and reduce the psychological strain effects of occupational stress. “These findings may have important personal health, organizational and societal outcomes given the rising cost and incidence of workplace stress.”
