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.

Vitamin B - Did U Know?

  • The recommended daily intake for kids is 50-100 mg of folic acid, and approximately 1 mg of the rest.

My mom's side of the family is abusive in their discipline. Its too much for me. Even though my grandma left the house, the effects of her disciplinary actions are hurting my self-esteem and self-confidence.

Me and my best friend met in this year but we are, or were, really close. I'm transferring to a different school this year. Me and my friend used to text every single day since summer vacation started. Now, we don't text at all! Whenever I text her I know she reads it because I use ######## but she never responds. It can't all be bad timing. I miss my best friend :(

Dear Dish-it, Sorry to be a burden, but I need some advice. About a year ago, I decided I didn't want to live with my mom and decided to move in with my dad. After my mom found out, she told me "You are no longer my child, go drop dead and rot in hell for all I care." My siblings, especially my twin, began to threaten me and my father's lives if we were to ever step foot near them again. A year later, my dad and I get in massive fights about everything I do wrong and he never seems to try and see my point of view. He often gets ##### and compares me to my mother and his previous exes. I feel lost on what to do. I feel so alone and so...hurt. Do you have any advice? I know it's pathetic of me to rant on here, but I'm clueless and on the verge of snapping.
