Why do people take B complex vitamins?

The reason is that the building blocks for good health come from a variety of foods, even if they are from the same family of nutrients. Such is the case with vitamin B, a key player in maintaining cell health and keeping you energized. Symptoms of a deficiency depend on what type of vitamin B you lack. They can range from fatigue and confusion to anemia or a compromised immune system. Skin rashes also can occur.
For example:
Vitamin B-12 deficiency may cause the following symptoms:
•   Tingling in the feet and hands
•   Extreme fatigue
•    Weakness
•   Irritability or depression

Insufficient amounts of B-6 can result in:
  •  Depression
  •  Confusion
  •  Nausea
  •  Anemia
  •  Susceptibility to infections
  •  Skin rashes (dermatitis)
Deficiencies in thiamine and riboflavin cause:
•    Confusion and cracks along the sides of the mouth.

A lack of niacin can cause:
•    Digestive issues, such as nausea and abdominal cramps.
•    Severe deficiency may also cause mental confusion.


Without enough folate can cause:
•    Diarrhea
•    Anemia.
•    Pregnant women with a folate deficiency could give birth to babies with defects.


While most people who eat a varied diet get enough B vitamins from food, some people are at an increased risk of deficiency, particularly those who:
•    Are over the age of 50
•    Take prescription antacids
•    Have celiac disease, Crohn's disease, gastritis, or other stomach or small intestine disorders
•    Have had stomach or weight loss surgery
•    Drink alcohol regularly
•    Are vegetarian or vegan
•    Pregnant and breastfeeding women may need more vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid.


One easy way to make sure that you get your daily dose of these important B vitamins is to take a B complex supplement such as:
