B Vitamins

The B Vitamins is the largest vitamin group

Out of over 20 known B vitamins, there are a large number of B vitamins that are needed to keep all of the body functions performing properly. All of the B vitamins are essential for a number of different processes. Without sufficient B vitamins the blood supply would not be healthy and this leads to a variety of illnesses and diseases.

Some types of B vitamins are also found in dairy products and eggs. Beans, legumes, nuts, citrus fruits, juices and dark green leafy vegetables are also sources of some B vitamins.
