The B complex family should be taken on a daily basis during times of stress, exhaustion and fatigue, anxiety, nervousness, hyperactivity and behavioral problems. B complex supplements may be helpful in relieving acne, eczema, mouth sores, particularly cracks at the corners of the mouth. Women who suffer from premenstrual tiredness and anxiety, and those with menopausal symptoms may benefit from vitamin B complex supplementation.
The B group vitamins are all water-soluble and are not adequately stored in the body, so they need to be replenished on a daily basis to support many body functions. Deficiencies of one or more of the B vitamins can easily occur, particularly during times of stress, fasting and weight-loss, or with diets that include substantial amounts of refined and processed food, sugar or alcohol.
As a group they are named the B complex vitamins because they are commonly found together in foods and have similar coemzyne functions, often needing each other to perform best. Some of the B family can be made in the body by inhabitant microorganisms, primarily in the large intestine. Bacteria, yeasts, fungi and moulds are all capable of producing B vitamins. However, people with compromised gut flora will have trouble synthesising B vitamins and will need to look at supplementation.

The B vitamins are important to the body as 'spark-plugs' that catalyse many biochemical actions. B vitamins help to provide energy by converting carbohydrates to glucose. The normal functioning of the nervous system is dependent on the B complex vitamins. They are often helpful in balancing and conserving energy in individuals who are stressed and tired.
The health of the skin, hair, eyes and liver are influenced by the B vitamins, as is the mucosal lining in and around the mouth. Deficiency signs include fatigue, irritability, nervous tension, depression, insomnia, loss of appetite, sore mouth or tongue and cracks at the corners of the mouth. Other signs may be premature greying of the hair, acne and weakness in the legs.
In these times of stress and dietary inadequacies it is important to supplement with an all round Vitamin B complex to support the nervous system and provide energy for the busy times ahead.
