An overdose of vitamin B through food is not possible. However, an overdose of vitamin B in the form of food supplements is possible.

2 What is vitamin B?

The term vitamin B covers many different vitamins. These include vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B8 and B12. The human organism cannot produce these itself. For this reason, they must be taken in daily through a healthy and balanced diet. All B vitamins have in common that they are all water-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored in the body.

    A vitamin B deficiency is often caused by malnutrition or incorrect diet. A vitamin B deficiency can be prevented in time by a balanced and healthy diet with the right foods. In general, it is best to eat fruit and vegetables every day in order to be supplied with all vitamins and nutrients. Older people, vegetarians and vegans are particularly often affected by a vitamin B deficiency. This can be due to both their diet and digestive problems.

A vitamin deficiency can be easily remedied both by a change in diet and by taking vitamin B in the form of dietary supplements.
