I take a multi-vitamin every day, opting for the "silver" variety simply because they contain more anit-oxidants than the regular version, plus my Ovaltine supplies another 40% RDA of most vitamins and minerals. Do not fuss over getting an excessive amount of B vitamins. They are water soluble, so any 'extra' will end up enhancing the health of your sewer system.

Oh, BTW Sushi, the only way to lose weight is to consume fewer calories than you burn. All the vitamins in the world won't help otherwise.

If you look at most B-complex labels, the amount of B vitamins can be up to 10,000% RDA. I think most of the unused vitamin is excreted quickly. B vitamins are great for stress, which also makes me wonder if helps elevate cortisol levels, which the lack has been touted as a cause of gaining weight in a few recently released weight loss supplements.
