B Vitamins

 

The B vitamin family consists of a group of individual vitamins. The most important function of the B vitamin family is to work as coenzymes in the body, mediating the energy production cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle. B vitamins are water-soluble and are generally safe in large doses because the body can easily excrete excess intake. Since B vitamins work synergistically in many of their functions, many people find best results when they are all taken together in a B complex formula. Individual B vitamins, on the other hand, may be recommended for therapeutic reasons, since their action in large doses can produce specific effects.

Because B vitamins are only stored in small quantities they must be replenished each day through the diet.
