Vitamin B - Introduction & Function

There’s only two types of vitamin that are water soluble like what have been mentioned in the vitamin introduction post. One of it is Vitamin B. It is easy for our body to absorb vitamin B, just as easily as emitting it out of our system. Vitamin B can also be lost in the process of cooking and washing water making it a little hard to maintain. However, one good news about Vitamin B is that there is no proven research that stated it’s harmfulness due to overdosing. So, you can take Vitamin B supplement as you like (but in a modest amount) and never have to worry about toxin build up. They are Vitamin B1(thiamine), B2(riboflavin), B3(niacin), B5(pantothenic acid), B6(pyrodixine), B7(biotin), B9(folic acid), B12 (cobalamines). There are more categories under vitamin B and the numbering code is actually up to vitamin B22.
