With just 1 Depot tablet Doppelherz Vitamin B-Complex + Folic Acid you cover the daily requirement of all 8 important B vitamins including folic acid.
Vitamin B complex contains a total of 8 vitamins: Folic acid, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, niacin and biotin.
They all have different structures and perform different tasks in the body. Nevertheless, they interlock like gears, complement each other in their functions and are closely intertwined.
So that the vitamins can work optimally in the body, it is important to absorb the entire vitamin B complex in sufficient quantities!

As a component of coenzymes, B vitamins play a role in “energy production from food”.
Thus the vitamins biotin, niacin, vitamin B1, B2, B6 and B12 contribute to the normal energy metabolism and support the normal function of the nervous system. Pantothenic acid plays a role in normal mental performance.
Blood formation and immune system
Vitamins B6 and B12 contribute to the normal formation of red blood cells, which transport oxygen in the blood. They also contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.
Folic acid plays a role in cell division and is involved in the process of blood formation.
Homocysteine levels and heart
Together with vitamins B6 and B12, folic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an intermediate in amino acid metabolism. Vitamin B1 contributes to normal heart function.
Causes of insufficient vitamin B supply
As varied as the tasks of the B vitamins are, the causes for an inadequate vitamin B supply can also be very different.
Of course, our diet has a great influence on the nutrient supply of our body. An unbalanced and unbalanced diet, long-term diets or special eating habits in old age – often food can no longer be tolerated or consumed in this way – can be the cause of an inadequate supply of vitamin B. This can lead to a lack of vitamin B in the body.
In addition, a large proportion of B vitamins can only be absorbed by the body to a limited extent and cannot be stored for long. If, for example, large amounts of vitamin B1 are absorbed at once, the body excretes part of it unused.
In the case of a vegetarian and vegan diet, it is particularly important to ensure that the vitamins contained in animal foods are sufficiently replaced by plant foods. Vitamin B12, which is contained almost exclusively in animal foods, is considered a critical nutrient here.
Many vitamins are also lost during the further processing of food, for example peeling. The sensitive B vitamins also do not tolerate heat, preservation or long storage times. High sugar consumption, tea and coffee or alcohol can also be vitamin B predators.
Burdening factors such as stress, increased demands at work and in private life or strong physical activities such as sport increase the body’s vitamin B requirement. A very good reason for an increased vitamin B requirement can also be pregnancy.
