Vitamin B Complex

General description

Vitamin B-complex contains all the vitamins in the B group. The B vitamins are related to each other and work closely in your body. For this reason, having all the B vitamins in your body helps your body work better.

There are many B-complex supplements available on the market. They all have different amounts of the common B vitamins. Some also contain vitamin C and bioflavonoids. These are often called as B complex with C.

The B complex includes the following:

  • Thiamin (B-1)

  • Riboflavin (B-2)

  • Niacin (B-3)

  • Pantothenic acid (B-5)

  • Pyridoxine (B-6)

  • Folic acid (B-9)

  • Cobalamin (B-12)

Biotin (vitamin H), choline, inositol, and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) are often included as part of the B-complex.

See each B vitamin for more information.
