The various vitamins in the Bio-Health Vitamin B-complex group are essential for healthy functioning nerves, healthy hair and nails. Vitamin B12 is also essential for those who follow a vegetarian and vegan diet, as it is naturally found only in the vitamin matrix of meat. It has been found that alcoholics suffer from a lack of B vitamins because alcohol flushes the system of B vitamins.
B vitamins are a class of eight water-soluble vitamins that are essential to help convert our food into fuel, allowing us to stay energized throughout the day. They also help keep our hair, skin and nails strong, form red blood cells and maintain nerve function. Though these vitamins share similar names (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12), they are actually different but often can be found in the same foods. In general, dietary supplements containing all eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex. Importantly, generally the only reliable vegan sources of B12 are foods fortified with B12 (although barley grass powder does contain reasonable levels), please read this page for more information.
