Are vitamin B6 and B12 water soluble vitamins? Do their excess harm the body or is easily flushed out of urine and is safe?

In brief: Vitamin B

BBB6 deficiencies are more common than vitamin B12 deficiencies.
Vegetarians and vegans may need to supplement their intake of these vitamins as many sources are found in animal products. Both water soluble and excesses eliminated.

In brief: B6 and B12 are

water soluble vitamins.
Too much vitamin B6 can be harmful to the nerve tissue. Taking too much vitamin B12 can give you also side effects. Because they are water soluble vitamins, the body excretes excess amounts in the urine instead of storing it. Hope it helps.
