Nutrition - Vitamin B

Vitamin B isn't a single vitamin like vitamin C or E is. It's made up of a bunch of vitamins that are called the B vitamins, or the vitamin B complex. Get the nutritious scoop on it right here!

Vitamin B - Why Is It Good For You?

The B vitamins work together to increase your metabolism and energy, and decrease stress, depression and heart disease. A lack of vitamin B in your diet will leave you feeling so tired that you can't function properly, as well as make your mouth and tongue red, swollen and cracked - ouch!

Vitamin B - List of B Vitamins

  • B1 (Thiamine) - Helps metabolize carbohydrates into glucose. Found in whole-grain cereals, bread and brown rice.
  • B2 (Riboflavin) - Breaks down carbs, fats and protein. Sources include milk, eggs and cheese.
  • B3 (Niacin) - Lowers cholesterol and keeps skin healthy. Found in protein-rich foods such as fish, eggs, meat and potatoes.
  • B5 (Pantothenic Acid) - Keeps your Central Nervous System healthy and fights allergies and fatigue. Found in meats, legumes and whole-grain cereals.
  • B6 (Pyridoxine) - Like B2, B6 breaks down carbs, fats and protein. Also helps produce red blood cells. Found in avocados, bananas, soybeans and fish.
  • B7 (Biotin) - Keeps your hair and nails healthy. Good sources include cauliflower, mushrooms, oatmeal and rice.
  • B9 (Folic Acid) - Important for pregnancies cuz it protects against birth defects. Found in leafy, green veggies, orange juice, whole grains and beans.
  • B12 (Cyanocobalamin) - Helps make all the blood cells in your body to prevent anemia, a blood disorder that makes you feel weak and tired. Rich sources of B12 include meat (especially liver and shellfish), poultry, egg yolk and milk.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

OMG IT is. It is and please don't disagree when I say it's the most annoying thing ever. Of course I know better than to date online. I don't trust long distance relationships, not even when it comes to friends. Though I like to believe kw keeps us all connected (: But it's possible, and I dislike this fact /: Here I go. Now I have put ideas into people's heads... way to go...
