The B-complex vitamins stand out as a great and true nutritional family for our body. Composed by 8 types, they are part of the range of water-soluble vitamins and play the role of fuel for the proper functioning of the body as a whole.
As our body cannot produce them, these vitamins must be ingested through food and / or supplementation to supply the needs.
The B vitamins have several individual functions, but most of them contribute to the production of cellular energy and normal functioning of the nervous system.
