Of the 13 vitamins needed by our bodies, eight are B-complex vitamins. These water-soluble vitamins function as coenzymes and work synergistically with other nutrients. They are required for a wide variety of essential metabolic processes and physiological reactions in almost all parts of our bodies including support for adrenal and liver function, converting food into energy, making red blood cells and maintaining healthy nervous and immune systems. B-complex vitamins are also necessary for metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. And the list goes on.
Our need for B-vitamins increases when we are pregnant or nursing, suffering from illness, under stress (physical or emotional) or recovering from surgery. As our bodies age we become less able to absorb nutrients, so B-complex supplementation is especially important for the elderly. Since the body does not store most B-vitamins, we need to consume them daily. In addition, they are destroyed by heat from cooking and food processing.
Always take B-complex vitamins together because they work together as a unit. Increased doses of single B-vitamins may be added for therapeutic effects. They have low toxicity, even in high doses, but if you have a medical condition, please consult your qualified health care professional to learn what’s right for you. See our information on individual B-vitamins to learn more about them.
