With spring here and summer just around the corner, some of us may need a little help to boost our energy levels after the deary winter months

After a long, cold and rainy winter, most of us are looking forward to shedding those bulky coats and winter jackets and getting outdoors to enjoy the warmer weather. Winter often can leave us feeling tired, worn out and less than our best. With spring here and summer just around the corner, some of us may need a little bit of help to boost our energy levels to cope with the last few months of the year.

Be At Your Best with B-Complex Vitamins

What is Vitamin B-Complex?

B-complex vitamins are a family of essential nutrients that play several vital roles in the body. They include Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), B9 (Folic Acid) and B12 (Cyanocobalamin).

What are the functions of Vitamin B-Complex?

B-complex vitamins play a large number of important roles in the body. These range from supporting healthy mood, metabolism, heart function and blood cell formation, to assisting with the body’s stress response, mood balance, energy production and normal enzyme function. This makes a good dietary intake of all the B vitamins essential.

Additionally, individual B vitamins often work together, so low levels of a single B vitamin may have broader implications across the B-complex group. This is why many health experts recommend a supplement that includes the full B-complex family, rather than taking individual B vitamins in isolation.

When should I take my B-Complex supplement?

B-Complex vitamins can be taken with breakfast in the morning to support energy levels through the day.

Why does my urine turn yellow when I take my B-Complex vitamin supplement?

This is a normal result of taking B-complex vitamins, in particular B2 (riboflavin). Vitamin B2 can temporarily cause urine to change to a bright yellow colour demonstrating that your body has processed the vitamin.
