Vitamin B


An essential nutrient, B-vitamins are water-soluble and not stored in the body, so a daily supply is needed. Refined, canned and overcooked and processed foods will have some or most of their B-vitamins destroyed.

B-vitamins promote the active conversion of all food into energy and assist in synthesis and reenergizing of cells and tissues throughout the body.* They also support healthy neuronal functioning, stress management and assist with healthy mood and mental clarity.* Additionally, B-vitamins participate in production of adrenal hormones and the formation of antibodies and red blood cells to help promote healthy blood, skin and eyes.*

There are eleven members of the B-complex family. They are B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine), B12 (cobalamin), biotin, folic acid (folate, folacin, pteroylglutamic), Choline, Inositol and PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic Acid).*

Food Sources:
  • whole grains
  • wheat germ
  • rice
  • wheat
  • organ meats
  • dairy
  • brewer’s yeast
  • fish
  • eggs

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • the entire family of B-vitamins (including folic acid)
  • derived from biologically-bound yeast – a natural source
  • balanced whole food ratio (this balance should be according to nature, not the RDA)
