Vitamin B Vegetables

While animal-based foods like fish, eggs and dairy products are great sources of B vitamins, you can still get your daily dose from plant-based sources, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

Benefits of B Vitamins

There are eight different kinds of B vitamins, all of which your body needs to stay healthy and function properly. And while these vitamins are all within the same umbrella, they each serve their own purpose.

  1. Vitamin B1 is also known as thiamin. This vitamin is absorbed by your small intestine and is found in many animal meats, like pork and trout, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Thiamin is used to support healthy cell growth and development.
  2. Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is mostly found in organ meats and green veggies like asparagus and broccoli, according to the NIH. Riboflavin is important for cell growth but also helps your body turn food into energy.
  3. Vitamin B3 or niacin helps convert food into energy and helps with cell health, per the NIH.
  4. Vitamin B5 (aka pantothenic acid) helps your body absorb and process fatty acids, according to the NIH.
  5. Vitamin B6 is responsible for more than 100 reactions in the body, according to NIH. Mostly, though, this vitamin is responsible for protein metabolism.
  6. Vitamin B7 (aka biotin) helps your body process amino acids and carbohydrates, according to the Mayo Clinic.
  7. Vitamin B9 or folate is often found in dark, leafy greens. Folate helps your body form red blood cells and is especially crucial in early pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinic.
  8. Vitamin B12 is mostly found in poultry, meat and fish, according to the Mayo Clinic. This vitamin helps support proper nerve function and red blood cell formulation.
