The B-complex vitamins are actually a group of eight vitamins, which include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12), pantothenic acid and biotin. These vitamins are essential for:
The breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose (this provides energy for the body) The breakdown of fats and proteins (which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system) Muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract Skin Hair Eyes Mouth Liver
Some doctors and nutritionists suggest taking the B-complex vitamins as a group for overall good health.
These vitamins coexist in the same foods, the B vitamins often work together to bolster metabolism, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, enhance immune and nervous system function, and promote cell growth and division — including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia.
Together they also help combat the symptoms and causes of stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease.
All B vitamins are water soluble, and are dispersed throughout the body and must be replenished daily with any excess excreted in the urine.
Brewer's yeast is a good source of Vitamin B.
Vitamin B is a complex of several vitamins. The name arises because it was once considered a single vitamin, much like Vitamin C or Vitamin D. Since later research has shown it is in fact a complex of chemically distinct vitamins that happen to often coexist in the same foods, the name has gradually declined in use, being replaced by the generic term "the B vitamins", the vitamin B complex, or by the specific names of each vitamin.
The B vitamins are:
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine) Vitamin B-2, also Vitamin G (Riboflavin) Vitamin B-3, also Vitamin P or Vitamin PP (Niacin) Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic acid) Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine and Pyridoxamine) Vitamin B-7, also Vitamin H (Biotin) Vitamin B-9, also Vitamin M (Folic acid) - important for pregnancies Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin)
Several other substances which are not human vitamins have been referred to as B vitamins. These include:
Vitamin B-4 (Adenine) Vitamin B-7* — more commonly called Vitamin I Vitamin B-8 (Ergadenylic acid) Vitamin B-10, also Vitamin R (Pteroylmonoglutamic acid mixed with other B vitamins) Vitamin B-11, also Vitamin S Vitamin B-13 (Pyrimidinecarboxylic acid or orotic acid, often misspelled erotic acid) Vitamin B-14 — a mixture of B-10 and B-11 Vitamin B-15 (Pangamic acid) Vitamin B-16 Vitamin B-17 (Amygdalin) Vitamin B-22, often claimed as an ingredient of Aloe vera extracts Vitamin B-c, another name for Vitamin B-9 (Folic acid) Vitamin B-h (Inositol) Vitamin B-t (L-carnitine) Vitamin B-w, another name for Vitamin B-7 (Biotin) Vitamin B-x, also PABA (para-Aminobenzoic acid)
B vitamins are often called the energy vitamins, but they are more like keys that unlock it.
Fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, anxiety and depression -- all can be signs of a B vitamin deficiency. That's because compounds in the B complex are needed for everything from the healthy maintenance of brain cells to the metabolism of carbohydrates, the brain's source of fuel. B vitmains are also necessary for production of neurotransmitters, which regulate mood and conduct messages through the brain.
