Vitamin B-complex is a natural supplement that provides the body with the necessary B vitamins which are vital for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism and the conversion of food to energy. The overall action of the complex is to help maintain health, particularly of the nervous system.
All of the B vitamins are water soluble and so cannot be stored in the body. They are easily lost by cooking, storage and the effects of sunlight. Each vitamin is chemically different from the others and all have separate functions in the body. They help maintain clear eyes, and healthy looking skin and healthy hair. This probably is the reason so many women take a B Complex supplement as part of a nutritional daily beauty care programme.
Being water soluble the nutrients are excreted in the urine if too much is taken. A well balanced, good quality formulation is all that`s required for the necessary part it can play as a food supplement.
All about B Complex Vitamins
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. 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.
A list of all B Vitamins:
- Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine)
- Vitamin B-2, (Riboflavin)
