From the expert

Altogether, there are 8 B vitamins, each with their own purpose and role within the body. The B vitamins are all water-soluble and crucial for cell metabolism, normal functioning of the central nervous system and the formation of red blood cells. All the B vitamins we need should be available through our diet. The B vitamins help with the converting food into fuel and metabolising fats and proteins. 

Vitamin B3 is found in foods such as eggs, peanuts, fresh fruit and vegetables, red meat and fortified cereals. Although extremely rare, vitamin B3 deficiency can occur. Symptoms include fatigue, vomiting, disorientation, memory loss and swelling of the mouth. Strict vegetarians and vegans may be at risk of vitamin B3 deficiency.
