  1. vitamin B complex

    B vitamins are a class of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism and synthesis of red blood cells. Though these vitamins share similar names (B1, B2, B3, etc.), they are chemically distinct compounds that often coexist in the same foods. In general, dietary supplements containing all eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex. Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific number or name of each vitamin, such as B1 for thiamine, B2 for riboflavin, and B3 for niacin. Some are more commonly recognized by name than by number, for example pantothenic acid, biotin, and folate. Each B vitamin is either a cofactor (generally a coenzyme) for key metabolic processes or is a precursor needed to make one.


  1. vitamin b complex

    Vitamin B complex refers to a group of water-soluble vitamins that include eight different types of vitamin B: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (cobalamin). These vitamins play crucial roles in various bodily functions, such as metabolism, red blood cell production, brain function, cardiovascular health, and nerve function. They are present in various foods and are also available as dietary supplements. Our body does not produce these essential nutrients, so they must be consumed through diet or supplements.
