The vitamin B complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12). "Vitamin B" was once thought to be a single nutrient that existed in extracts of rice, liver, or yeast. Researchers later discovered that these extracts contained several vitamins, which were given distinguishing numbers. Unfortunately, this has led to an erroneous belief among non-scientists that these vitamins have a special relationship to each other. Further adding to confusion has been the "unofficial" designation of other substances as members of the B-complex, such as chloline, inositol, and para aminobenzoic acid (PABA), even though they are not essential vitamins.

Each member of the B-complex has a unique structure and performs unique functions in the human body. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and biotin participate in different aspects of energy production; vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism; and vitamin B12 and folic acid facilitate steps required for cell division. Inositol is required for proper formation of cell membranes. It, along with choline, affects nerve transmission and the transportation of fats within the body. Each of these vitamins has many additional functions. However, contrary to popular belief, no functions require all B-complex vitamins simultaneously.

Mega B-100 is a powerful adjunct to a healthy diet and fitness regimine. More and more research shows the significant importance of vitimins in the "B" family. It is one of many quality vitamin and mineral supplements offered by Country Doc MD.
