B vitamins are a class of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. Though these vitamins share similar names, research shows that they are chemically distinct vitamins that often coexist in the same foods. In general, dietary supplements containing the b major eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex. Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific number or name of each vitamin. Some are better known by name than a number. We shall take a look at the various names they bear, and the healthgarde products that contain them.

Each B vitamin is either a cofactor (generally a coenzyme) for key metabolic processes or is a precursor needed to make one

Thiamine, also known as thiamin or vitamin B1, is a coenzyme in the catabolism of sugars and amino acids. It is a vitamin found in food and used as a dietary supplement. As a supplement, it is used to treat and prevent thiamine deficiency and disorders that result from it, including beriberi, Korsakoff's syndrome, and Korsakoff's psychosis. Vitamin B1 is found in many foods including yeast, cereal grains, beans, nuts, and meat. It is often used in combination with other B vitamins and found in many vitamin B complex products.

Thiamine plays a central role in the release of energy from carbohydrates. It is involved in RNA and DNA production, as well as nerve function. Its active form is a coenzyme called thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), which takes part in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl coenzyme A (CoA) in metabolism.

Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is a vitamin found in food and used as a dietary supplement. Vitamin B2 is needed to break down proteins into amino acids, fats, and carbohydrates in the form of glucose. This helps convert nutrients from food into usable bodily energy that helps to maintain a healthy metabolism. As a supplement, it is used to prevent and treat riboflavin deficiency and prevent migraines. It may be given by mouth or injection. It is nearly always well tolerated. Normal doses are safe during pregnancy.

It is found in milk, eggs, malted barley, liver, kidney, heart, and leafy vegetables. The richest natural source is yeast. Riboflavin occurs in free form only in the retina of the eye. Riboflavin is involved in the release of energy in the electron transport chain, the citric acid cycle, as well as the catabolism of fatty acids.

Niacin also is known as nicotinic acid, is an organic compound. Niacin is composed of two structures: nicotinic acid and nicotinamide. There are two co-enzyme forms of niacin: nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). Both play an important role in energy transfer reactions in the metabolism of glucose, fat, and alcohol. Food sources of Niacin include fish, chicken, turkey, pork, liver, peanuts, beef, mushrooms, green peas, sunflower seeds, and avocados.

Sometimes referred to as “Vitamin B4”, choline (and also known as adenine or carnitine), is a distant member of the B-complex family and is known as one of the “lipotropic” factors. Lipotropic means that choline possesses properties that prevent the excessive accumulation of fat in the liver.
Although not officially deemed a Vitamin per the FDA definition, make no mistake about it, choline is an essential and vital nutrient for our health.

Why do you need Choline?

• Crucial component of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is necessary for muscle movement and brain function.
• Crucial component of phosphatidylcholine which is necessary for cell membrane integrity.
• Crucial component of sphingomyelin which is found in myelin sheaths (a type of insulating material) that protects and is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
• Regulates liver function and minimizes excess fat deposits.
• Necessary for normal fat metabolism.
• Involved with methylation.

The “Anti-Stress” Vitamin, Pantothenic Acid is water-soluble and is the main component that makes coenzyme A (CoA) in the body.
CoA is found in all living cells making pantothenic Acid essential to sustain life.
Beta-alanine, also a component of vitamin B5, is metabolized from the amino acid alanine.
Why do you need Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)?
Pantothenic Acid (as CoA) is vital for:
• Carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism
• Supporting adrenals with hormone production, including melatonin
• Maintenance and repair of all cells and tissues
• Synthesis of essential lipids
• Synthesis of neurotransmitters
• Aids in the manufacture of vitamin D
• Helps produce red blood cells

The highest concentration of CoA is in the liver with the next highest concentration being in the adrenal glands.
This is important for two reasons:
1. The high concentration of CoA in the liver makes it possible for the body to detox the many toxic substances we are exposed to, including alcohol.
2. With high concentrations of CoA in the adrenals, the adrenals can make the hormone corticosterone. This hormone is critical as it helps the body to respond to the many kinds of stress we encounter.

Pyridoxine is water-soluble and thought to be involved in more body processes than any other nutrient, making Vitamin B6 one of the most important. It is a coenzyme in many enzymatic reactions in metabolism.
Why do you need Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)?
Pyridoxine is vital for:
• Ischemia
• Protein metabolism
• conversion of tryptophan into niacin
• Nerve Function
• Red blood cell metabolism
• Maintaining blood glucose level
• Aiding in DNA and RNA production

Vitamin B7 (Biotin), also known as vitamin H, is water-soluble and actually a coenzyme, as opposed to a ‘vitamin’ per se. It is required for many bodily functions. Interestingly, some have found biotin helpful for preventing hair from turning gray.
Why do you need Vitamin B7 or H (Biotin)?
Biotin is vital for:
• Synthesis of fatty acids
• Aids in fat metabolism
• Aids in carbohydrate metabolism
• Aids in maintaining proper blood glucose levels
• Aids in amino acid metabolism
• Necessary for healthy skin and hair
• Cell growth
• Helps to transfer carbon dioxide

Inositol is a B-vitamin-like nutrient found naturally in whole grains, beans, nuts, and fruits. It is also made by the body and is available as a dietary supplement. It is popularly referred to as Vitamin B-8.
There are nine types of inositol occurring in nature. Two forms, Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol, have specific functions in our cells. Over the last several years, research has found that a certain ratio of these two forms seems to work better than either form alone. That ratio is 40 to 1, meaning forty parts Myo-inositol to one part D-chiro-inositol.
Inositol is a carbohydrate and it tastes sweet but the sweetness is far less than common sugar (sucrose). Inositol is a word used in dietary supplements whereas Myo-inositol is the preferred name. Myo-inositol is highly utilized in the structural foundation of secondary messengers and eukaryotic cells. Inositol is also an important component of structural lipids and their various phosphates (PI and PPI).
•  Inositol is water-soluble and part of the “B” family of vitamins. As with choline, it is a precursor of phospholipids which are a necessary component of cell membranes. This is important because phospholipids are vital for the electrical current and nutrient transport across and inside cells

Often Thought As The “Prenatal” Vitamin. Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) is also known as folate. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is extremely important during times of rapid cell division; such as in pregnancy. It is also vital for the production of healthy red blood cells.
Why do you need Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)?
• Cell Division
• Maintenance of new cells
• Synthesis of DNA
• Amino acid metabolism
• Nucleic acid metabolism
• Required to make normal red blood

Known as the “energy” vitamin, this water-soluble vitamin has many important functions vital for health.
Perhaps the most vital function is its role as a neurotransmitter (such as with serotonin and dopamine), needed for the transmission and regulation of nerve signals.
Why do you need Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin)?
• Maintains a healthy nervous system; especially the nerve sheaths
• Aids in blood formation
• Aids in the production of DNA and RNA
• For Production of the amino acid methionine
• For Fat and carbohydrate metabolism
• Neurotransmitter metabolism
• Aids in regulating circadian rhythms
•  Two factors are required for proper absorption of Vitamin B12:
1. The presence of sufficient gastric acid (hydrochloric acid) in the stomach
2. The presence of Intrinsic facto
