Thiamin (B1) deficiency can lead to hand and foot numbness as well as damage to the central nervous system. Vegetarians, diabetics, and women taking birth control pills are highly susceptible to Riboflavin (B2) deficiency and Niacin (B3). Pyridoxine (B6) is needed for the production of antibodies and red blood cells, and promotes a normal functioning nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Cyanocobalamin (B12) helps prevent nerve damage and anemia, aids in cell and blood formation, proper digestion, fertility and growth. This vitamin is also helpful during pregnancy and lactation. Vegetarians and immune compromised individuals are the most at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency. (Thanks to Bulkfoods for information on B-vitamin deficiencies). Having a tablespoon of nutritional yeast every day can help get the required B-Complex for your body.
