Vitamin B refers to a group of 8 vitamins namely B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, & B12. They all play an important role in our bodies in good shape. These vitamins are an integral part of numerous metabolic processes that go on in our body.
While many of them work in complementing each other, each has its specific benefits such as DNA synthesis, red blood cell production, brain health and nerve function.
So, we bring you seven foods that provide your body with a healthy dose of vitamin B complex.
Be it scrambled, poached, fried or boiled; eggs are an incredible source of vitamin B. They also contain several other nutrients like folate, protein, vitamin D, A and calcium. Naturally, they are a great non-meat source of vitamin B12.
The egg yolk particularly contains the highest amount of vitamin B12. You can get 0.56 micrograms of vitamin B12 from one large egg.
Also, the choline found in eggs helps in improving the liver and brain health.
Research shows a correlation between low levels of choline and liver dysfunction with a possibility of risk of cancer formation (1).
