The B complex is a group of essential vitamins with important roles in the body.
Benfotiamine (a bioavailable form of vitamin B1) helps prevent high blood
sugar. Riboflavin (B2) has an important role in energy metabolism. Niacin (B3)
is the base of NAD and NADH, important coenzymes that are required in
cellular respiration and energy production pathways. Coenzyme A is also a
critical factor in these pathways, and its production depends on pantothenic
acid (B5). P5P (B6) is required in many biological pathways, including amino
acid metabolism and neurotransmitter formation. Methylcobalamin (B12) is
important in the central nervous system. Benfotiamine and P5P help prevent the
formation of advanced glycation end products which lead to age-related
degeneration. Folic acid (5-methyltetrahydrofolate) is needed for red blood cell
and DNA formation and is essential during pregnancy.
The Costs of Deficiency
The importance of these vitamins is illustrated by the detrimental health effects
that occur when they are deficient. B1 deficiency has been linked to type 2
diabetes. B12 deficiency leads to neurological disorders and anemia. P5P
deficiency is associated with depression and neuropathy. Folic acid deficiency is
associated with anemia and neural tube defects in infants.
