Vitamin B6, B12 and Folic Acid Can Lower Our Risk for Cardiovascular Disease
A study in Nature Reviews Endocrinology 2010 showed that supplementation of pyridoxine (vitamin B6), folic acid (vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 has been used to decrease levels of plasma homocysteine and the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, these vitamins can effect kidney health and increase the risk of vascular disease in patients with diabeteic nephropathy. So these supplements should not be given in all patients with cardiovascular disease.
