vitamin information

everything about vitamins

There are many vitamins in the B group, the most important being B1 - thiamin, B2 -riboflavin, B3 - niacin, B6 - pyridoxin, B12 - kobalamin, H - biotin, also cholin, inozytol, PABA, list acid and others. All are solvable in water, and mostly needed for our nervous system.

Dietary Reference Intakes published by Food and Nutrition Board of Institute of Medicine of National Academies for some of the vitamins in the B group in 2004 stand at:

Thiamin:    1.1-1.2 mg per day
Riboflavin:     1.1-1.3 mg per day
Niacin:         14-16 mg per day
B6 :         1.3 mg per day
Biotin:         30 micrograms per day
Cholin:         425- 550 mg per day

Recommendations for infants, children, males and females under 18 years of age, or females during lactation and pregnancy differ from the average. For further information including the upper tolerable intake levels, refer to the website of the Food and Nutrition Board.



I have decided to start an active promotion of this website, so that we get more visitors soon. And it would be a waste of time if we didn't allow for discussion and sharing of informations. In light of that, discussion forum will be officially launched on June 21st.



I hope it will serve a positive function in opening alternative horizons in the area of general information about vitamins.
