What Are B Vitamins?

The B Vitamins are a group of water soluble nutrients that are found commonly in the same types of food. They all have unique and distinct benefits,but the fact that they are found in the same food leads many people to believe that the natural way, that most benefits human health is for them to be consumed together. These group of vitamins have a huge range of benefits related to nervous and hormonal systems, they affect every other system in your body, making them vital for your health and wellness.

A List of the B Vitamins

There is some debate on what classifies as a B Vitamin. There follows in this blog a list of all the B Vitamins but to avoid argument I have listed them in 2 categories, the nutrients that everyone agrees are a B Vitamin and a second category containing the nutrients that are in dispute. It is worth noting that, while the significance of this may be important to some purists, it does not really matter that much. What is important is that the balance is roughly the same as the B Vitamins found in good quality food.

Vitamin B1 Thiamine

Vitamin B2 Riboflavin

Vitamin B3 Niacin or Nicotinic Acid

Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid

Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine

Vitamin B7 Biotin

Vitamin B9 Folic Acid

Also considered by some as B Vitamins but not everyone agrees:

Vitamin B12: Methylcobalamin

Vitamin B15 Pangamic Acid



What Vitamin B Complex Supplement should I buy?

When considering a B Complex supplement to purchase there is no point in going for a cheap supplement. It should have as many of the above B Vitamins in it as possible and care should have been taken to buy a good quality supplement which preferably contain all of the above list but at least the first 6. Asd these nutrients are all found together in the same foods try to find a supplement with all 10 of these vitamins. Care should also be taken to check that the manufacturing has been careful in the formula balance and this is also as close to nature as possible.


For general health a good Vitamin B Complex supplement can be very beneficial. A B complex is the best way under normal circumstances to supplement B Vitamins. If you choose to take individual B vitamin supplements or have been advised to do so by a qualified health practitioner always follow the usage instructions on the label. Exceeding the dose of some B Vitamins can sometimes cause adverse reactions.

In these days of poor food quality taking a supplement to boost your vitamin intake can be very beneficial to health, but it is worth spending the extra money for a really good brand.
