Vitamin B complex trials for rheumatoid arthritis
In this trial‡, 43 participants with rheumatoid arthritis were randomly allocated to receive 5 mg vitamin B9 with or without 100 mg vitamin B6 once a day for 12 weeks.
- There was no reported difference in change in the disease activity score or number of painful or swollen joints.
- Those who received the Vitamin B9 and B6 combination demonstrated significantly greater reductions in some markers of inflammation.
- No side-effects were recorded.
‡ A trial of low quality. Results of this trial were given a lower weighting when we came to our conclusion about the compound.
