Adequate vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid are essential for detoxifying homocysteine, a by-product of protein metabolism that may disturb normal vascular function (J Nutr 1994;124:1927-33; Am J Cardiol 1995;75:132-6).
Elderly persons are frequently low in certain B-vitamins essential for maintaining normal brain function (Psychoparmacology (Berl) 1992; 109(4):489-96; N Engl J Med 1998; 318:170-8).
Clinical trials have found vitamin B6 supplements helpful for diverse conditions, such as reducing urinary oxalates that may disturb normal kidney function (Int Urol Nephrol 1988;20:353-9), stabilizing premenstrual physiology (Br J Obstet Gynaecol 1990;97:847-52), and restoring normal peripheral nerve function (J Occup Environ Med 1997;39:949-59).
Certain medications, such as oral contraceptives, are associated with depletion of several B-vitamins (Food & Drug Interaction 1998;197-8; Lancet 1975;1:561-4).
