What are Neurotropic B Vitamins?


Neurotropic B Vitamins are especially important for the health of your nervous system. This group of vitamins is composed of Vitamin B1 (thiamine), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and Vitamin B12 (cobalamin). They play many different roles, including supporting your metabolism and helping to maintain the health of your nerve cells. Since your body doesn’t produce neurotropic B vitamins it is important that you get enough in your daily diet. Some people may have lifestyle habits or chronic conditions that put them at risk for deficiencies of these B vitamins. Speak to your healthcare provider if you suspect you may be at risk.
