Supplements Guide – Energy support – B vitamins

B vitamins are one of the supplements that are suitable for many cases of exhaustion, stress and lack of energy.

B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins that work together in the body with many functions like help to maintain healthy nerves system, skin, eyes, liver, mouth, digestive system and brain functions.

B vitamins act as coenzymes (help enzymes to react chemically with other substances)
they are involved in energy production and may be useful for easing depression or anxiety.


Most people get enough B vitamins by eating a varied and balanced diet.

Nutritional yeast and whole grains are rich in these vitamins.

They are also found naturally in fish, poultry, meat, eggs, dairy, leafy greens, vegetables, beans, peas and mushrooms.

If you consume a high amount of processed foods that are rich in sugars and refined carbs, alcohol and caffeine, the body will use more its own B vitamins.
