Just what is the Vitamin B complex? The vitamin B-complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C: thiamine (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), niacin (Vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5), pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid, and cobalamin (Vitamin B12).
I’ve been gleaning as much nutrition information as I can from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions. Here are some excerpts about B vitamins and their importance to our overall health:
Dark green, leafy vegetables, such as spinach, chard and beet greens contain abundant vitamins and minerals, particularly B vitamins, calcium and trace minerals, and should be included in the diet on a regular basis-at least once or twice a week.
Pineapple is high in fiber and contains carotenoids, B-complex vitamins and vitamin C.
Deficiency of the B vitamin complex can result in the enlargement and malfunction of almost every organ and gland in the body.
If you aren’t sure your diet includes a sufficient quantity of these very important B vitamins, consider supplementing with Beeyoutiful’s B-Better. B-Better contains thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, biotin, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Click on the links or the picture below for complete nutrition facts.
