Are You Getting Enough B Vitamins

July 2, 2014 at 3:31 pm Leave a comment

Vitamin B, such as niacin, riboflavin and thiamine, plays an important role in exercise. It contributes to the production of energy that is necessary to make your muscles work.

If your diet is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, and low-fat dairy you are probably getting enough B vitamins. One exception might be B-12, which is naturally found in foods coming from animals. Plant foods have no vitamin B-12 unless they are fortified.

Vegans or strict vegetarians may need to consider adding a B-12 supplement. Talk with your doctor before taking any vitamin supplements.
