I take B - complex vitamin with my daily men's vitamin. I take it to boost my energy. Can to much B, hurt?

Yes.: Even though B vitamins are water soluble and not stored in our fat like the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), too much of certain Bs, like B6 and B3 (niacin,) can get you in trouble. Going above 200 mg a day of B6 has the potential to cause numbness and other nerve problems. High doses of Niacin (2000 mg a day) can lead to elevated liver enzymes, jaundice and nausea. ...Read more

Its it okay for me to take B-Complex 100 from TheVitamin Shoppe company and One A Day Men multivitamin altogether? Am I overdosing on Vitamin B?

It's OK: You can't overdose on real B vitamins. But be careful with synthetic forms. The easiest way to tell is to look at the ingredient list of your supplements. Stay away from the ones that have folic acid or cyanocobalamin. Look for the ones that have folinic acid and methylcobalamin. ...Read more

I want to know about the benefits of injecting B complex.

I want to know about the benefits of injecting B complex.

B12 injections: There are no benefits to getting B12 injections unless you have a deficiency and you are not able to absorb it thru the gut. Some times Vegans can become deficient because they do not eat animal fat and they would have to get injections. I have heard of psychiatrists giving B12 injections during periods of increased stress ; not sure why!! Perhaps to calm the nerves. Hope this helps ...Read more

Is it safe for a 24 year old man like me to take vitamin supplements such as neurogen e, a tablet of b complex vitamins + vitamin E for nerve health?

Is it safe for a 24 year old man like me to take vitamin supplements such as neurogen e, a tablet of b complex vitamins + vitamin E for nerve health?

Yes, however...: Yes, these are safe, though I notice Neurogen E has the cyanocobalamin form of B12 and methylcobalamin is better. Look for a B complex that has the L-5-MTHF form of folate instead of folic acid, as about half of people have difficulty converting folic acid to its active form. E is best as a natural form with mixed tocopherols (not just alpha tocopherol).Consider Ashwagandha, a herb good for nerves. ...Read more

Are jamieson b complex 100 mg too much?

For what condition?: Jamieson's b complex 100 mg is a timed-release product. B vitamins are also water-soluble, so that any excess your body does not need will be excreted. Taking vitamin b6 (pyridoxine) at 1-6 grams (not milligrams as in this preparation) per day over many months can cause a sensory neuropathy. For most people, the 50mg b complex would be enough -- if you have poor diet & stress, maybe need more. ...Read more

B complex is compulsory for diabetics?

No: Most people can get enough b vitamins from nutrition if they eat a healthy diet. Of course, if you're a type 2 diabetic, maybe that's partly because you're not eating healthy. B vitamins are water soluble so you'll need to take them daily. But compulsory? Not unless blood tests show low levels, in which case, yes. But otherwise, optional. Try eating healthy instead. ...Read more

B complex vitamins forbrain energy?

Not likely unless...: Unless you're truly deficient, it's not likely that you'll find much benefit from b complex vitamins. Sure we look for B12 & folate (folic acid) deficiency in alzheimer's dementia, but I have yet to correct someone's levels & return their thinking process. If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare. ...Read more

Does b complex help with constipation?

Does b complex help with constipation?

No: The american diet is already vitamin-rich, and there are essentially zero reported cases of vitamin-deficiency, amongst those not taking vitamins. Therefore, the supplemental vitamins we take are in excess of need, and your organs already have enough vitamin b (et al.). More should not change any functions.

Constipation is a local, bowel problem, most easily addressed with increased fiber intake. ...Read more

Can I take hydroxyzine and stress b complex together?

How long after starting a b complex vitamin should I start feeling better again?

How long after starting a b complex vitamin should I start feeling better again?

Depends...: B complex vitamin is often taken to help with stress. Magnesium, zinc, other trace minerals and phytonutrients are all also important to recover from stress. I recommend a b complex with 5-mthf because if you have a mutation in the mthfr gene then you would need his form to bypass the mutation. Most important though are lifestyle changes - restful sleep, exercise, diet and prayer/meditation. ...Read more
