WHAT ARE B VITAMINS?

B vitamins are water soluble and essential for carbohydrate metabolism and energy production. When first discovered, it was thought to be a single compound and was named vitamin B. Further research demonstrated that there are multiple, chemically distinct B vitamins, which are often present in the same foods.

Individual B vitamin supplements are sometimes referred to by the specific name of each vitamin. These vitamins support metabolic processes in the body. Additionally, they each have other unique functions. Supplements containing all eight are referred to as vitamin B complex.
