Vitamin B supplements may reduce risk of stroke
Vitamin B supplements may reduce risk of stroke (September 20, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From China - A new report published in Neurology finds that vitamin B supplements may reduce risk of stroke. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis comprised of 14 clinical trials and over 54,000 participants. All of these studies examined B vitamin use to placebo or low-dose B vitamin. Participants were followed for at least 6 months. Results showed that taking B vitamins reduced risk of stroke by 7%. However, supplements did not appear to reduce the severity of stroke or the risk of dying from it.
