What is B vitamin?

B vitamins are among the important building blocks of a healthy body and mind. Collectively called the B vitamin complex, they are a group of eight vitamins necessary for the correct functioning of your organism.

Where can you find B vitamins?

B vitamins are naturally found in cereals, meats, green vegetables and dairy products. They are water-soluble, so your body cannot store large quantities of them, needing a constant supply instead. A healthy diet should include enough B vitamins to keep your body and mind in good shape to meet the challenges of your dynamic life. Apart from a healthy diet, we recommend a Berocca® per day just to make sure your organism has everything it needs to support your lifestyle.
