Vitamins from B group

On top of vitamin C, there are 8 more water-soluble vitamins, all from B group. Each of vitamin B has its own distinct qualities and regulates different processes in the body, but collectively they perform inter-related functions on the cellular level.

The research on the B group has been traditionally concentrating on a subset of the vitamins, particularly B6, B9, and B12. Nevertheless, all 8 of them are essential, meaning that the human body can’t metabolize them on its own and need to get them supplied from food.

Collectively, B group specifically influences brain functioning, DNA repair and act as co-enzymes in a menu of enzymatic reactions.
