Originally thought to be a single vitamin, the Vitamin B complex is actually a grouping of eight water-soluble vitamins. The health benefits of the B Vitamin complex are varied. Not only are they important to help support a healthy metabolic rate, they can also help support healthy skin and hair.
The B complex is vital to a properly functioning nervous system, immune system, and provides material for healthy cell repair and growth. Vitamin B deficiency may be linked to a number of conditions like anemia or beriberi. Since most B complex vitamins are water soluble, they need to be replenished constantly, as any excess is quickly excreted through urine.
The World Health Organization estimates that Vitamin B deficiency is a major public health concern that affects millions of people worldwide.1 A study conducted by Tufts University suggests that as many as 25% of adults in the West, not taking supplementation, may not have an adequate Vitamin B supply.2
