Dr. Oz: The 8 Vitamin B’s: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, & B12

Doctor Oz played a game called “Win Your Daily Dose” on his show to teach us about the importance of B Vitamins.  There are a total of 8 different B Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12.  B Vitamins are critical because they help to keep our nerves healthy and to ward off cancer, as well as to help with our muscle functions.

Sources of B Vitamins:

1.  Cereals – Whole Grains

Cereals and whole grains are a great source of all of the eight B Vitamins.

2.  Legumes

Lentils are a source of B Vitamins as well as folic acid, which reduces cancer and birth defects.  Lentils may just be the best source of protein!

3.  Oysters

Oysters are loaded with Vitamin B and help with nerve functions, plus they are a great source of iron.  The lucky woman who picked the box that contained oysters won a trip to Chesapeake Bay, Maryland!
