Which vitamins speed up metabolism?

This helps the body to utilize stored energy in food as opposed to storing it as fat. Additional vitamins which can speed up the metabolism include niacin, vitamin B-6, and iron which increases metabolism by helping with L-carnitine production, an amino acid which encourages the burning of fat.
