The B vitamins ARE important for more than just energy, they can be instrumental in brain function and mood. Important essentials B’s are vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. In fact, one study found that more than 25 percent of severely depressed older women had a B12 deficiency. To be sure you get enough B6, focus on leafy green vegetables, bananas, eggs, organic soybeans, brown rice, and whole grains such as oatmeal and wheat germ. Vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal foods such as fish, shellfish, poultry, and eggs, although you can take a sublingual vitamin B12 supplement to help ward off any possible deficiency.
