As its name implies, vitamin B complex is a combination or mixture of eight essential vitamins. Although each is chemically distinct, the B vitamins coexist in many of the same foods and often work together to bolster metabolism, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, enhance immune and nervous system function, and promote cell growth and division – including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia. Together they also combat stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease.
B vitamins, which are water soluble, are dispersed throughout the body and must be replenished daily with any excess excreted in the urine.
