The B complex vitamins are a family of 8 vitamins and a few related compounds, each performing unique and separate functions in the body. The B vitamins are water soluble, and with the exception of B12, are not stored in the body. Therefore, B complex vitamins must be consumed daily for optimal health. B vitamins are best known for their function as cofactors in cellular energy production.
Although these vitamins are chemically distinct, B vitamins often work together in biochemical systems. As a group, the B vitamins have a broad range of functions, being essential for the proper operation of the endocrine glands, especially the adrenals and the thyroid. B vitamins are also important for the production of neurotransmitters, as well as the general health of the nervous system. Some B vitamins maintain healthy red blood cells, support immune function, regulate cell growth, aid in hormone production, and help maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.
