Vitamin B refers to several different types of vitamins that, together, are known as the B-complex vitamins. There are eight B Vitamins in total: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. Spruce contains a nutritionist-approved and professionally crafted mix of five B vitamins; we have selected these five to give you the optimum range of benefits.


Vitamin B6 is a water soluble vitamin also known as pyridoxine, and is one of the most important B-Vitamins. B6 is nicknamed the “brain vitamin” after its leading role in supporting brain functionality and mood regulation.

The RDA, or NRV (Nutritional Reference Value), for Vitamin B6 in adults is 1.4 mg (milligram) daily in the UK and EU. One made up Spruce contains 0.7mg (50% of NRV), meaning you can enjoy multiple Spruce drinks in a day.

Vitamin B6 is water soluble, which means excess vitamins will pass through in your urine. That being said, the medical profession advise a safe upper limit of 100 mg a day. It is always best to check with a doctor before taking a supplement, especially if you have an existing health condition, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
