Neurotropic vitamins, such as the B vitamins but also vitamins D and E, are vitally important for the health of our nervous system. In fact, diet is as important to psychiatry as cardiology. Neurotropic vitamins, says medicatione.com, usually combine variants of Vitamin B (i.e. Vitamin B Complex). They mainly consist of B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B6 (Pyridoxine), B12 (Cyanacobalamin), B3 (Nicotinamide) and B5 (D-Panthenol).
