B vitamins water soluble

Common Questions and Answers about B vitamins water soluble


Avatar f tn fat soluble, such as A, D, E or K, and water soluble, including all of the B vitamins and vitamin C. Fat-soluble vitamins stay in your body, whereas water-soluble vitamins are absorbed immediately, with any excess being excreted in urine.
Avatar f tn The B vitamin most likely to cause the neon yellow color in your urine is vitamin B2, not B12. B2 is also known as riboflavin. MOST B vitamins are water soluble, and this is the case with vitamin B2, or riboflavin. The neon color is not something you need to be concerned with. I have this color almost all the time, as I am told to take more of the riboflavin to help prevent migraines.
Avatar m tn The B-vitamins are water-soluble (dissolvable in water) and are easily removed from the body in urine. They are generally considered safe, with little to no side-effects. Omega 3s will help with headaches or other side effects from Lexapro too. Best wishes!
416625 tn?1203288998 My book "End the Addiction Now" should be here tomorrow. But I am wondering if somebody can tell me how much of the B's I should be taking. Even though they are water soluble, I do not want to take too much (somewhat ironic and poetic at the same time isn't it...god forbid i take too many vitamins) .....I am taking the amino fuel.....and SamE, which also needs B to metabolize. I just feel like I may be taking too much with a multivitamin...B complex supplement..etc.
Avatar m tn There are two types of vitamins water-soluble, and non-water-soluble. Water soluble vitamins such as Vit.B and Vit.C are not stored in the body any excess will be excreted out of the body. Non water soluble vitamins such as, A, D, E, and K are stored in the liver and fat tissue so any excess ingested could cause toxic effects. Make sure and check the max allowed amounts of any vitamins you take.
Avatar n tn s and extra C because these to vitamins are water soluble (any excess will pass through your urine)
Avatar m tn Ironically, when I went to an ENT for my tinnitus (which happened along with Hep B), he told me to take a lemon in my water every day. He said it would reduce the tinnitus and help detox the liver.
2075737 tn?1379447682 Folic acid is a B vitamin, so you won't hurt yourself by taking more. (It is water soluble, so can't build up in your system, unlike A for example which is fat-soluble and can build up to levels that are considered to be too much. With water-soluble vitamins, you just pee out the excess.) Therefore, if you want to take two folic acid tablets a day rather than one until you have a chance to talk to the doc, it would not harm you or the pregnancy.
Avatar n tn HI, I had a baby 9 months ago and would like to lose some weight manily due to high blood pressure. I have been researching that vitamins b-2, b-3, b-5, & B-6 all help with this. I was wondering if anyone know if it is safe to take these supplements? I am healthy but currently don't have insurance to go talk to a doctor. has anyone tried this way also. i refuse to do diet pills because they don't work. Or if you have any other ideas?
Avatar f tn Vitamin B is water soluble so what your body doesnt use, you pee it out so that shouldnt give a headache but it is something to mention to your Dr...also check out what levels of all the vitamins are making sure they are with in the daily reccomendations of prenatals just because not all vitamins are water soluble.(meaning you can get too much)..
Avatar f tn calcium and magnesium at night...lots of fluids...most vitamins are water soluble and if you dont need them you will just pee them out....A,D,E&K are fat soluble so u dont want to take too much of those...
Avatar f tn Some are water soluble vitamins and fat soluble vitamins. So you take either with food and water or just water.
1778927 tn?1381878747 B complex vitamins are water soluble and when in excess are easily excreted by the kidneys. So, the raised levels may not be due to a single kidney, its more likely to be due to consuming excess. You could cut down on the supplements and repeat the test. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn B vitamins are water-soluble; they won't hurt you because any extra simply flushes out of your system, unlike a fat-soluble vitamin. You definitely need the folic acid. But as the prior poster says, don't take anything that is a prescription medication unless your ob-gyn has told you to take it.
Avatar n tn If your doctor wanted you to get blood work done, then have it done. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin so it does not stay in the body's fat cells as the fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A, or E which would have an effect on blood work.
1590979 tn?1302006835 Megadoses are fine in water soluble vitamins as long as you drink enough water. You basically just pee out whatever your body doesn't need. Megadoses of fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin D can result in an overdose and make you really sick. Taking a multivitamin is generally a good idea for everyone, but they are meant to supplement vitamins in your diet, not replace them.
Avatar m tn well if you have extra water soluble vitamins that your body doesnt need, they will be expelled through your urine. so yup, it happens!
Avatar f tn can order an blood panel to see if you are deficient in any vitamins. B vitamins are water soluble though, so taking them won't hurt you even if you aren't deficient, as your body will just allow you to urinate out the extra (giving you neon yellow pee, lol!) Can't hurt to add them into your daily vitamins.
Avatar f tn Also, consider taking a B complex formula. Most of the B vitamins are water soluble. I started taking the highest amount available through Trader Joe's, which is inexpensive to hopefully take care of the other B vitamins. It seems that even though I've had problems taking B complex in the past that their formula doesn't bother me. I also take one 800 mcg folic acid capsule each day.
Avatar f tn That can be toxic to your body. Some vitamins are water - soluble and any excess gets flushed out in your urine but others are fat - soluble and will stay in your system. You can poison yourself that way. If you want more gummies, buy a bag of gummy bears. Don't take more than the recommended number of vitamin ones. It's dangerous.
Avatar f tn B vitamins "are" water soluble, but that only means they need water to be absorbed, not fat. Fat-soluble vitamins need fat to be absorbed. Some water-soluble vitamins "can" be toxic if over-ingested. The majority will be eliminated in the urine if not used, but if taken in HUGE quantities the body can't eliminate the excess fast enough.
Avatar m tn This is a question about Vitamin B (B-Complex): Every time I take a super b-complex pill which contains 1000% of the daily RDA for every B-vitamin your body can't synthesise on its own, my body temperature drops by nearly two degrees and I urinate once every few days. This didn't happen before I had Lyme disease but now that I have it, it happens all the time and these effects I've noted, have lasted for days.
Avatar f tn Vitamin c is water soluble, so any excess you would excrete through your urine. Vitamin d is fat soluble and the excess is absorbed by your body. Too much of a fat soluble vitamin can lead to toxicity, so i would talk to the pharmacist to see what levels are safe to consume.
