Kidney stones – The combined effect of vitamin B6 and magnesium was tested in a landmark study performed 25 years ago. 149 recurrent stone patients were given magnesium and B6 daily for 4.5-6 years. Before receiving this treatment, these patients suffered an average of 1.3 stones per person per year. Stone formations fell to 0.1 per person per year, a 92.3% improvement.

Dissolve calcium oxalate kidney stones with Gravel Root or Hydrangea Root.  Take Marshmallow at rate of 40 drops every hour if you are passing a kidney stone as it will coat the stone and “ease” it on through the urinary tract.

Low blood pressure – Adrenal insufficiency is the usual underlying cause of hypotension.

Memory and Brain Shrinkage – High levels of the amino acid homocysteine are linked to brain shrinkage and an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. B vitamins are known to suppress homocysteine. In a 2010 study, participants received relatively high doses of B vitamins, including:

  • 800 micrograms (mcg) folic acid — US RDA is 400 mcg/day
  • 500 mcg B12 (cyanocobalamin) – US RDA is only 2.4 mcg/day
  • 20 mg B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) — US RDA 1.3-1.5 mg/day

After two years those who had received the vitamin-B regimen suffered significantly less brain shrinkage compared to those who had received a placebo. In those who had the highest levels of homocysteine at the start of the trial, their brains shrank at half the rate of those taking a placebo. The latest study takes this research a step further, showing not only that B group vitamins may slow brain shrinkage but that it may specifically slow shrinkage by as much as seven-fold in brain regions specifically known to be most impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.  Among participants taking high doses of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12, blood levels of homocysteine were lowered as was the associated brain shrinkage – by up to 90 percent.
