Benefits of B Vitamins

Benefits of B-Vitamins. B vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. As the building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism.

The body has a limited capacity to store most of the B-group vitamins (except B12 and folate, which are stored in the liver). A person who has a poor diet for a few months may end up with B-group vitamins deficiency.

Signs of vitamin B12 deficiency include:

  • Anemia
  • Confusion
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Difficulty maintaining balance
  • Fatigue
  • Intestinal problems
  • Mood disturbances
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
  • Poor memory
  • Soreness of the mouth or tongue

The B vitamins are:

  • thiamin (vitamin B1)
  • riboflavin (vitamin B2)
  • niacin (vitamin B3)
  • pantothenic acid (vitamin B5)
  • pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
  • biotin (vitamin B7)
  • folic acid (vitamin B9)
  • cobalamin (vitamin B12)

Certain groups of people are more at risk of B vitamin deficiencies, such as those who:

  • are on vegetarian or vegan diets
  • elderly people
  • have diets that include large amounts of high-sugar and processed foods
  • drink too much alcohol

Most people get the vitamins they need from a healthy diet, which has a wide variety of foods, including:

  • plenty of vegetables, of different types and colours, and legumes/beans
  • grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain, and/or high cereal fibre varieties such as breads, cereals, rice, pasta, noodles, polenta, couscous, oats, quinoa and barley
  • lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds
    milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or their alternatives, mostly reduced fat

B-vitamins are essential for our blood cells, hormones, and nervous system.
