There are eight B-group vitamins and they are essential for energy production, red blood cell synthesis and, well, lots of other things. These are all different chemicals and having just one means you’re not getting the rest. Here’s a quick break down of what each of those B-s stand for.
B1 – Thiamine; converts carbohydrates into energy, involved in DNA production and nerve function
B2 – Riboflavin; energy production
B3 – Niacine; metabolises glucose, fat and alcohol
B5 – Pantothenic Acid; needed for the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates plus the synthesis of amino acids, ketones and antibodies
B6 – Pyridoxamine; metabolises amino acids and haemoglobin
B7 – Biotin; metabolises lipids, proteins and carbohydrates
B9 – Folic Acid; needed for cell division, particularly during pregnancy and for red blood cells
B12 – Cyanocobalamin; needed to produce blood cells in bone marrow, nerve sheaths and proteins
So if you’re going out to buy vitamin supplements, make sure those pills have all these goodies in them, because, face it, this is one lot of vitamins that are group, not an individual…
