  • Vitamin B complex helps the body in producing energy from the foods you eat. Of all the eight B complex vitamins, Vitamin B1 (thiamin) and Vitamin B2 are particularly involved in this function. Vitamin B1 aids in the production of thiamine pyrophosphate, the substance used in converting food into energy. On the other hand, Riboflavin is responsible for producing enzymes that converts carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to produce fuel supplied to the brain and muscles. Having enough of the B vitamins invigorates the body and boosts mental performance.
  • Vitamin B2 regulates the formation of the RBCs (Red Blood Cells). RBCs are the oxygen and nutrient-carrying component of the blood, supplying the other major organs of the body. The benefits of Vitamin B can be implicated in pernicious anemia, a condition wherein, there is a slowed rate of RBC production from the body’s inability to absorb Vitamin B12.
  • Vitamins B2, B3, and B6 work together in promoting a healthy skin. These vitamins help the epidermis, the skin’s outermost layer, to retain moisture. Creams, lotions, and other skin care products with the B vitamins helps promote softer and smoother skin, while reducing flakiness, dryness, and wrinkles.
  • Pregnant women need Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) to ensure healthy brain development in their fetus and prevent neural tube defects. Inadequate supply of folic acid during pregnancy increases the risk for hydrocephalus and spina bifida in newborns.

Vitamin B is a family of eight vitamins namely Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5 (Panthotenic Acid), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin, Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid), and Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin). Being water soluble vitamins, Vitamin B complex is not stored in the body and should be supplied regularly from the diet. Food sources of Vitamin B include poultry, milk, potatoes, whole grains, legumes, liver, meats, and leafy greens. Alcoholism, smoking, vegetarian diet, contraception, and consumption of processed or canned foods deplete the body’s supply of the B vitamins. Low levels of the B vitamins can lead to debilitating conditions when left uncorrected. Signs and symptoms related to Vitamin B deficiency include mental confusion, fatigue, insomnia, poor coordination, paresthesias, pain in the limbs, acne, cracking of the lips, and extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia). In worse cases, Vitamin B deficiency leads to Pernicious anemia, Korsakoff’s psychosis, Wernicke’s encephalopathy, stunted growth, and neural tube defects in children. If you are unsure that you’re getting enough Vitamin B complex from your diet, Vitamin B supplements like B-100 can help, with standardised concentrations of the eight B vitamins for health energy production, muscle and nerve functions, mental performance, RBC formation, and normal growth and development in fetuses during pregnancy.
