Why does the B vitamin deficiency cause deficiencies of other substances in the body?

This is because B vitamins stand at the bottom of all bodily processes: digestion, absorption of nutrients, production of enzymes and hormones. Thanks to them other substances necessary for other processes are made. B vitamins then have an indirect influence on the functioning of the whole body.
B vitamins are necessary for the absorption of microelements. The internal correlations and relationships between different vitamins and elements are equally as complex as those between genes. We only know of several linear correlations, which is why supplementation is often more disruptive than helpful. And when it is helpful, it’s more a case of alleviating the symptoms in some areas without eliminating the cause of the problem, which is the B vitamin deficiency.
We cannot yet accurately diagnose the state of the vitamins and elements in the body. Blood tests are like urine pH tests – they largely depend on the last meal or other factors, which are not taken into consideration when interpreting the results. For example, testing for levels of magnesium in blood, which does not take into consideration the actual amount of magnesium in tissues. Magnesium is the activator of over 300 enzymes necessary for the body to function properly, but it is also an electrolyte and its amount in the blood must stay within a narrow range for the heart to work correctly. A sudden and rapid decline of magnesium levels in the presence of its general deficiency could even cause death. Keeping an appropriate level of magnesium in the blood is a priority for the body, so it will first be lacking for the hundreds of enzyme related reactions and only then in the blood. So if a blood test shows a decreased level of magnesium in the blood, it means that it has already been “borrowed” from everywhere else and its deficit renders the body unable to function normally, thus endangering the person’s life. And if the blood test shows a normal level of magnesium, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a deficiency of it in the tissue or the cerebrospinal fluid (which happens in the case of depression, with normal levels of magnesium in the blood).
However, because magnesium deficiency is common, supplementing it is often advised. Meanwhile, it cannot be absorbed without vitamin B6, which in the case of a general B vitamin deficit the body lacks for this purpose. In the presence of a vitamin B6 deficiency, magnesium, whether coming from food or supplemented is then removed from the body, but you will only notice it when serious symptoms begin to surface. This is why in the case of a longterm acidity in the body, which creates a B vitamin deficiency supplementing magnesium without vitamin B6 will lead to the opposite of the desired effect that is decreasing the amount of magnesium in the body and intensifying the symptoms of it deficiency, which is a common reaction to supplementation. In extreme cases this happens even when vitamin B6 is supplemented alongside magnesium, because the B6 is used for different purposes, which the body at that times considers a priority. It’s enough to simply exchange magnesium supplements for B6 supplements and magnesium levels in the body will begin to rise, because it will be absorbed from food. By B6 supplements I mean supplementing it separately (50 mg tablets), because the 2 mg of it contained in different supplements of magnesium with the vitamin have little to no effect.
For example: osteoporosis is the result of a calcium deficiency in the bones, so supplementing calcium is advised. The gist of the thing is, calcium can’t be absorbed without vitamin D and vitamin D without vitamin K. In the case of a deficit of these vitamins, the calcium accumulates in the veins and causes arteriosclerosis. The direct cause of osteoporosis is not a calcium deficiency, but a vitamin D and vitamin K2 deficiency. In the case of a B vitamin deficit, the levels of vitamin K and D are lower, because they are liposoluble, and to digest fats and absorb the vitamins soluble in them, B vitamins are required. This leads to the conclusion, that the primary cause of osteoporosis (and probably almost any other condition anyway) is the B vitamin deficiency.
Substances which the body can’t digest and absorb are of no use. This is why a diet scarce in vitamins, especially B vitamins, weighs the body down instead of nourishing it. This is why processed food is killing us: because it uses up vitamins, but does not provide them. We are nature’s creations and we can’t defy its laws. We will not function optimally while on a highly processed diet instead of natural products, or even on a natural diet with wrong proportions (for example, a lot of meat and fats, even vegetable fats and little vegetables). Not only coffee and alcohol, but even a slice of bread with olive oil, a sandwich on white bread or a steak – they all further the B vitamin deficiency, using more of them up in the process of digestion and alkalization than they give back afterwards. If it isn’t made up for immediately, it will continue to grow, ruining the body more and more.
