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.

Hey, just to let you know, the only reason why I know this is because I wanted to also know if they like me back haha. Also, my answer may not be very accurate- But anyways... In this love/crush case, it's always best to look at their body language. Are their eyes looking at your eyes and mouth? Do they copy your actions? When you two talk, do they lean near you or have their whole body facing towards you? Do their pupils dilate when they talk to you? Those are some examples of body language. Another thing is that they stare at you because who doesn't love staring at their crush's face all day? If they love hanging out with you, that means they're probably interested. Are their friends talking about you when he's around? Is it about him having a "crush" on you? Or are they teasing him? Probably another sign. But what you should really look at is the body language, there are tons of articles about it. Just simply Google it. Hope that the verdict will be Guilty! (Guilty is my saying of they like you back, hehe)

Putting your height and weight together are good ideas. Personally, I think that sounds fine. But you can always use an online bmi calculator to make sure.
