  o Thiamin (B1) assists the nervous system, heart muscle and regulates appetite

  o Riboflavin (B2) plays a role in mucous membrane formation and skin formation

  o B6 helps maintain normal homocysteine levels in the blood, which is an amino acid that helps reduce the risk   of heart disease

  o Folic acid (B9) helps form brain and spinal cord during fetal development and is involved in cell division and red blood cell formation
