b's to the rescue

When I first moved down to Florida I started to develop lip cracking at the outer edges of my mouth. Very annoying. Turns out this happens due to a lack of vitamin B.

But which B to take? There are several. B1, B2, B6.. you get the idea.

Can you take them all in a single vitamin? Yes. This is called a B-Complex vitamin, available at any pharmacy. I picked up a "Super B-Complex" bottle o' B's a few weeks ago at Walgreen's. (Note: Walgreen's is ten times better than CVS. Seems to have friendlier staff.)

So I've been taking one a day and the lip cracking is now gone. Yee-haw. I should note that when you read the side of the bottle it's a lil' unnerving when you find out what you're taking. (And yes, I do read the side of bottles. Always a smart move in my opinion.)

Some team of scientists determined what is a recommended daily intake of vitamins, and this is what the bottle says per one caplet serving. Bear in mind that 100% is the "normal" serving.

Vitamin C 300mg: 500%
Thiamin (Vitamin B1) 15mg: 1000%
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) 10mg: 588%
Niacin 250mg: 250%
Vitamin B6 5mg: 250%
Vitamin B12 10 mcg: 167%
Pantothenic Acid 20mg: 200%
Iron 27mg: 150%

The one that raised my eyebrow is the B1. A thousand percent? Wow. Well, it cured my lip cracking so I guess it's doing what it's supposed to do.
