B vitamins are a group of water soluble vitamins and this B vitamin family majorly contains 8 vitamins Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. All of these B Vitamins have a different role to play in the body. Even though each of it has a unique function, all of them work in coordination.

When you do not have adequate amount of these vitamins through diet, the doctor prescribes a B-complex supplement to fill in the gap. 

Who is at a risk of B Vitamin deficiency?

Certain groups like pregnant women and older adults are vulnerable and may be at a risk of developing B vitamin deficiency. Conditions like Crohn’s disease, HIV, Gluten Intolerance and Excessive Alcoholism may result in inadequate absorption of these vitamins from diet.

Since the B vitamin family is water soluble, it is flushed out of the body daily, therefore it needs to be constantly replenished by consuming foods rich in B vitamins to avoid any nutrient deficiencies.

What is the function of B vitamins?

The B vitamins have a number of functions, they play an important role in energy production, macronutrients metabolism (carbohydrate, protein and fat), the synthesis and repair of DNA and RNA. They also help in maintaining a healthy skin and muscle tone, and maintaining a healthy nervous system.
