The Importance of Vitamin B Complex

By Tami Charbonnet

Now more than ever, it is important to ensure you are getting essential vitamins and nutrients to keep your body fueled and energized. A deficiency in the eight essential vitamins of the B complex may cause ailments like fatigue, memory loss, migraine headaches and unhealthy hair and skin.

ìTaking a B complex vitamin will not create heightened alertness or energy the way caffeine does,î says Dr. Tanya Zuckerbrot, author of The Miracle Carb Diet: Make Calories and Fat Disappear ñ with Fiber.  ìChances are the average person is already getting plenty of B vitamins from the food they eat.î

Consult a physician before changing or adding to your diet or exercise plan.
