Study Shows Vitamin B May Not Protect Your Heart

According to a new study carried out by Norwegian researchers, vitamin B may not actually help protect your heart.
The study was led by Dr. Marta Ebbing of Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, Norway.
Researchers looked at over 3,000 patients who all had coronary heart disease between 1999 and 2006.
They were randomly split up into four groups, and were then given a daily oral dose of various treatments.
The treatments included folic acid, vitamin B12 plus vitamin B6, folic acid plus vitamin B12, a placebo, or vitamin B6.
Researchers statd that the group that received folic acid plus vitamin B12, or just vitamin B6 saw no improvement at all.
The vitamins were unable to protect and prevent the heart from future cardiovascular problems.
The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
