What does this tell us?

Based on your response, which may indicate no B-complex supplementation, some B-complex supplementation or much B-complex supplementation, The Analyst™ is able to reduce your risk factors for:
Cataracts

Several studies have found that long-term use of B vitamin supplements, along with vitamins A, C, and E, and carotenoids (particularly lutein and zeaxanthin), reduces the risk of developing cataracts.

Coronary Disease / Heart Attack

The B vitamins help prevent cardiovascular disease by reducing levels of homocysteine, which damages the arteries and promotes the buildup of plaque in the arteries (atherosclerosis).  Researchers at Harvard University found that a high level of homocysteine in the blood more than triples the risk of heart attack.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED, Impotence)

By reducing the level of homocysteine in the blood, and therefore the risk of atherosclerosis, the B vitamins also reduce the risk of developing conditions that can be caused by atherosclerosis, including erectile dysfunction.

Macular Degeneration

Harvard University researchers found that the B vitamins protect our eyes.  Those taking daily B6, B9 (folic acid) and B12 supplements had a significantly reduced risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.

Osteoporosis - Osteopenia

By reducing homocysteine levels in the blood, the B vitamins reduce the risk of developing related conditions.  A Harvard University study found a strong connection between high homocysteine levels and risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

By reducing the level of homocysteine in the blood, and therefore the risk of atherosclerosis, the B vitamins also reduce the risk of developing conditions that can be caused by atherosclerosis, including peripheral vascular disease.

Retinopathy

By reducing the level of homocysteine in the blood, and therefore the risk of atherosclerosis, the B vitamins also reduce the risk of developing conditions that can be caused by atherosclerosis, including retinopathy.

Senile Dementia

The B vitamins, particularly B6, B9 and B12, help us to stay mentally sharp.  As we age, we lose about 2% of our brain volume every 10 years.  B vitamins help reduce levels of homocysteine, which is linked to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.  Studies have shown that individuals taking B vitamins experience less brain atrophy and better cognitive function than those who do not.

Stroke

By reducing levels of homocysteine in the blood, the B vitamins significantly reduce the likelihood of having a stroke.
