The B vitamins are a collection of eight, water-soluble vitamins essential for a range of important functions in the body. They help release energy from food and are essential for our immune and nervous systems. They are not stored in the body so we need to eat foods that contain them.

Thiamine helps our bodies use carbohydrates and to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the ‘molecular currency’ of energy transfer in our cells.
