Can you overdose on vitamin b? I saw a post that said too much B6 can cause toxicity but i thought vitamin b was water soluble

Can you overdose on vitamin b? I saw a post that said too much B6 can cause toxicity but i thought vitamin b was water soluble

Taking lots 4 months: I think of overdose as a single high dose causing harm & taking a large single dose of b6 won't cause harm. However, taking high doses of b6 daily for months (usually at least 1000 mg but rarely as low as 200 mg) can cause toxicity symptoms, most commonly peripheral neuropathy (tingling & numbness), also headaches, fatigue & irritability, which usually dissipate upon stopping b6. See comment:. ...Read more

Does it harm or strain your kidneys/liver to filter excess water soluble vitamins. Some multivitamins have well over rda, turn urine bright yellow?

Does it harm or strain your kidneys/liver to filter excess water soluble  vitamins. Some multivitamins have well over rda, turn urine bright yellow?

Vitamins: It's not unusual or harmful to have deep yellow urine after taking multivitamins. Most vitamins are simply excreted in the urine if they exceed recommended daily doses. However some vitamins like D or A can be harmful when taken in massive doses. It's important to adhere to the doses recommended on the label of legitimate preparations. You can get advice from your pharmacist if you're unsure. ...Read more

What kind of multi-vitamin should a person with rheumatoid arthritis take?

What kind of multi-vitamin should a person with rheumatoid arthritis take?

The right question: Nutrition plays a huge role in RA & other autoimmune diseases. Add a good multivitamin and also take a look at your diet. The book "digestive wellness" is a good resource for looking at how certain foods can at least make RA worse, perhaps play even a more direct role. Dairy & gluten are the 'usual suspects' but for some it may be soy, etc. Vegetables, fruits are key in an antiinflammatory diet. ...Read more

Kind of an odd question but if you take a water solvable vitamin supplement and it doesn't seem like you noticeably pee it out (B vitamins for example turning your urine deep yellow) does that mean your body used it all?

Kind of an odd question but if you take a water solvable vitamin supplement and it doesn't seem like you noticeably pee it out (B vitamins for example turning your urine deep yellow) does that mean your body used it all?

Urine Coloration: While vitamins like B, C and others are excreted in the urine, B vitamins are best known for enhancing the yellowing of urine. However, a lack of coloration is not an indication of a deficiency/dependency. A good balanced diet is the best way to maintain healthy levels of vital amines. Extra amounts of B/C vitamins are harmlessly excreted. Be careful with A, D and E as they can accumulate. ...Read more
