We often speak about the importance of food and the roles it plays in our lives; our nutritional health and overall well being. And, one of these elements; Vitamin B, has been creating a lot of buzz recently.
But what do you really know about Vitamin B?
Many who have heard of the B-vitamins are most likely familiar with B6 and B12. But B vitamins also include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate (also known as folic acid), biotin and pantothenic acid. These B vitamins not only work collectively to improve health and digestion, but also individually in every cell. They perform many different jobs including, but not limited to helping our bodies release energy received from complex carbohydrates, proteins and even fats.
But, where exactly are we getting these B vitamins in our diets?
Living Strong Magazine (www.livingstrong.com) published a great article in January of 2015 that provided a great breakdown of the most common food sources for each of these nutrients. You can read the article in its entirety here: www.livestrong.com/article/22253-foods-high-b-vitamins/.
