What the experts are saying

"B vitamins are important for energy production, help with stress tolerance, mood control and provide support to the nervous system. Many people’s diets do not provide adequate levels of B vitamins due to the high intakes of processed foods. Taking a B complex is particularly helpful when under stress or leading a busy lifestyle, as B vitamins provide support for neurotransmitter production and the adrenal glands."
