B Vitamins – The Ultimate Fat Metabolizer
B vitamins are essential for a fully functioning metabolism. B vitamins primary functions are to help your body metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and to use the stored energy in food.
The B vitamins include:
- thiamine (B-1)
- riboflavin (B-2)
- niacin (B-3)
- pantothenic acid (B-5)
- pyridoxine (B-6)
- biotin (B-7)
- folate (B-9)
- cobalamin (B-12)
Thiamine (B-1) helps the body cells convert carbohydrates into energy. Low levels of one or more of these vitamins mean your metabolism won’t be functioning at its best. This makes losing weight even harder.
Cobalamin (B-12) isn’t found in any plant products, so it’s difficult for someone following a vegan diet to get enough.
B vitamins can be found in a wide variety of foods. B vitamins can be found in:
- lean meat
- whole grains
In general, dietary supplements containing all eight B vitamins are known as B-complex vitamins. I recommend Nature’s Way B Complex 100 caps. It has all the B Vitamins you could ask for in one capsule.
