so whats the deal with b-vitamins?? I just read an article outlining the entire list of b-vitamins, but they didn't give any reason for anyone to take them. So what do you guys know about the b-vitamins, like which ones should a gym rat like me with a good diet take to help me out??

They are supposed to be good for central nervous system (CNS). A multi B complex is tends to regenerate the CNS. Here is a bit of info I found:
The B-complex vitamins are actually a group of eight vitamins, which include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12), pantothenic acid and biotin. These vitamins are essential for:
• The breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose (this provides energy for the body)
• The breakdown of fats and proteins (which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system)
• Muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract
If you want more details about each group of vitamin B check this site out. It will give you the breakdown of each group of B. http://www.nutrivit.co.uk/vitamins/vitamin_b.htm

In addition, if you are taking Deca vit B-6 will help with Gyno issues. It keeps prolactin levels in check.

B vitamins are just as important as the others, however, assuming the amount of food you're eating and assuming you take a multi-vitamin, you should be getting plenty of them.
The exceptions are where there is therapeutic value - like fatguy said about b6. I've heard b5 for something (don't really remember what). but, the most common that i hear would be to take injections of b12 - it can (in some people) increase energy levels and appetite.
