The B vitamins consist of a large number of substances that are involved in the metabolism of all living cells. Acting as coenzymes, they work together with proteins in the various enzyme systems of our body.

The functions of the B vitamins are closely synergistic and because of these interrelationships, an insufficient intake of one or more of them can cause deficiencies in the others by hampering their utilization. B vitamins are water-soluble and are not stored in the body. They must be replaced daily and any excess excreted.

Although the B vitamins do work together, some of their individual functions are as follows:

Vitamin B-1 (thiamine) acts as a coenzyme necessary for the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose, which is burned in the body for energy. It is essential for the functioning of the nervous system. A deficiency can cause beriberi, a disease marked by weakness, paralysis and edema.

Vitamin B-2 (riboflavin) acts as a coenzyme that activates the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It is essential for cellular oxidation. A deficiency can cause tissue inflammation and an over-sensitivity to bright light.

Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) plays a role as a coenzyme in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It facilitates the release of glycogen for energy from the liver and muscles. It also participates in the utilization of energy in brain and nervous tissue and is essential for the regulation of the central nervous system.

Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) is the only vitamin containing cobalt, a trace mineral. It is essential for the normal functioning ofall body cells, especially those of the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract and nervous system. It is also necessary for the formation of red blood cells.

Biotin is an essential coenzyme that assists in the making of fatty acids and in the burning of carbohydrates and fats for body heat and energy. It also aids in the utilization of amino acids, folic acid, pantothenic acid and vitamin B-12. It is also a potent stimulant to the growth of healthy cells.

Choline is usually considered part of the vitamin B complex. It is a component of lecithin, which facilitates the movement of fat from the liver and into cells, and it must be present before vitamin A can be stored. It is manufactured in the body from dietary phosphatides as found in lecithin.

Folic acid functions along with vitamins B-12 and C in the utilization of proteins. It has an essential role in the formation of heme, the iron containing protein in hemoglobin necessary for the formation of red blood cells. Some folic acid is produced by the intestinal bacteria. Folic acid is essential during pregnancy to prevent neural tubular defects in the developing fetus.

Inositol is usually considered part of the vitamin B complex. It is thought that, along with choline, inositol is necessary for the formation of lecithin within the body.

Niacin, also available in the form of niacinamide, is a coenzyme that assists in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Niacin is essential for the health of the skin, tongue and digestive system. The disease, pellagra, is a result of a niacin deficiency.

PABA (para aminobenzoic acid) may be considered part of the vitamin B complex. It influences intestinal bacteria, enabling them to produce folic acid, which in turn, aids in the production of pantothenic acid. As a coenzyme, PABA functions in the breakdown and utilization of proteins, and aids in the formation of red blood cells.

Pantothenic acid is necessary for the normal functioning of the adrenal gland which directly affects growth. It is also essential for the formation of fatty acids. In addition, as a coenzyme, it participates in the utilization of riboflavin and in the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
