Vitamin B-complex contains all the vitamins in the B group. It appears that the different B vitamins are related to each other and work closely together in the body. For this reason, having all the B vitamins present in the body leads to better working of body functions.
There are many B-complex supplements available on the market, all containing varying amounts of the common B vitamins. Some also contain vitamin C and bioflavonoids. These are often referred to as B complex with C.
The B complex includes thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9) and cobalamin (B12). In addition, biotin (vitamin H), choline, inositol and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) are often included as part of the B-complex.
