Our expert says:
You may know that the so-called vitamin B complex consists of a number of different chemical compounds called B vitamins: B1 or thiamine, B2 or riboflavin, niacin, B6 or pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, folic acid, B12 or cyanocobalamin, and biotin. Each one of these B vitamins acts as a co-factor with the so-called energy-generating enzymes in the various energy cycles of the body, so basically they are all important for energy production. Some of the B vitamins also play other additional roles (e.g. B12 prevent pernicious anaemia, B1 prevents beri-beri, etc). If you require a more detailed description of the various interactions of the B vitamins in the energy pathways, I would recommend that you Google with "Vitamin B complex - physiological functions". The B vitamins tend to work better when one takes the entire B complex, so if you require supplementation buy a good vitamin B complex preparation, rather than a single B vitamin product.
