Vitamin B

Vitamin B is a combined name for eight different vitamins. These 8 vitamins (b1, b2, b3, b5, b6, b8, b11, b12) all have a different function and effect on the body. They ensure that skin, hair and eyes remain healthy, the nervous system and digestion/metabolism are maintained, as well as energy levels and that the heart continues to do its job properly.


Because the body does not always produce vitamins itself, it is necessary to obtain the vitamins from foods or from supplements, which are often available in various stores. Foods containing B vitamins include nuts and grains, yogurt and green vegetables.

Vitamin B deficiency

When a vitamin B deficiency has occurred in the body, various symptoms can develop. Fatigue, among other things, often occurs. But hair loss, anemia, vision disorders and other complaints related to skin, hair, eyes, nervous system and digestion/metabolism can occur. The complaints/symptoms naturally differ per person.

When there is an excess of vitamin B intake, this does not have immediate consequences for the body. The body excretes the excess vitamin through the natural way, the urine.
