The scientists who first discovered vitamin B believed that it was a single compound; however, with the advances in technology, it was soon discovered that it was a family of eight water-soluble compounds. Today, with the exception of B6 and B12, B vitamins are referred to by their names: thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), biotin and folate. Exceptional dietary sources of B vitamins include fortified cereals, ham, tuna, wheat germ, liver, milk, spinach, lentils and a wide variety of other foods.
B vitamins in the body function mainly as coenzymes or parts of coenzymes. Coenzymes are considered to be the keys that unlock the mechanism of action of enzymes that speed up reactions in the body. B vitamins are utilized in a wide variety of functions in the body, such as the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate and fat and the synthesis of neurotransmitters, betaine, RNA/DNA, red blood cells, amino acids involved in the reduction of homocysteine levels, and antioxidants such as glutathione.
Some B vitamin derivatives, also known as quasi-vitamins, function similarly to vitamins, but their human requirements are not yet known, even though they are associated with important biological activities in the body. Inositol, choline and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) are known to be part of the B-complex family, while taurine and carnitine, which are also derived from B vitamins, are usually listed in the amino acid family due to their shape. Although they are all known to play fundamental roles in the body, they have not yet been proven to be essential in the diet for humans since they can be synthesized in the body from B vitamins and other nutrients.
