B3, or Niacin is needed for the metabolism of food, the maintenance of healthy skin, nerves and the gastrointestinal tract. Niacin is also used in those all-important oxidation reduction reactions. Niacin can also be used to help lower cholesterol.
B6, or Pyridoxine is needed for the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Pyridoxine is also used in the production of red blood cells as well as in the biochemical reactions involved in the metabolism of amino acids.
B12, or Cyanocobalamin is necessary for processing carbohydrates, proteins and fats and to help make all of the blood cells in our bodies. Vitamin B12 is also required for maintenance of our nerve sheaths. Vitamin B12 acts as a coenzyme in the synthesis and repair of DNA.

- The breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose (this provides energy)
- The breakdown of fats and proteins (which aids the nervous system)
