Hi, I'm Molly Lee, and I'm founder and director of energizingnutrition.com, a holistic health and nutrition practice based in New York City. B vitamins play a crucial role is all of the body's systems and processes. Some great sources of vitamin B food include whole grains, dark leafy greens like collards, kale and broccoli, eggs, fish, beans, as well as high quality meats and diary. Just make sure you're getting grass-fed, pastured, organic high quality meat and dairy. I know that products like the grass-fed, organic or free range meats and diary can cost more, but it's definitely worth it because you don't want the added by-products or hormones, which can be damaging to your body. If you're experiencing symptoms such as depression, lower energy, anxiety, anemia, poor memory, chronic fatigue, indigestion, these are all symptoms that you may not be getting enough vitamin B. So make sure you talk to a doctor or nutritionist about how you can balance that out.
