Vitamin B & Uric Acid Introduction

This is the vitamin B subsection of the Uric Acid & Vitamins section. So here you will find a list of studies that investigate links between gout and...
  • Vitamin B₁ (thiamine)
  • Vitamin B₂ (riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B₃ (niacin)
  • Vitamin B₅ (pantothenic acid)
  • Vitamin B₆ (pyridoxine)
  • Vitamin B₇ (biotin)
  • Vitamin B₉ (folic acid or folate)
  • Vitamin B₁₂ (cobalamins)

For this current version, I have done a quick search of uric acid and vitamin B topics. So there is scope for me to conduct more thorough research if your feedback indicates I should. For example, I might focus on specific types of B vitamin & uric acid

Vitamin B & Uric Acid Studies

StudyStatusQuote/Note
Huang, Tao, Kelei Li, Sailimuhan Asimi, Qi Chen, and Duo Li. "Effect of vitamin B-12 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma homocysteine, ferritin, C-reactive protein, and other cardiovascular risk factors: a randomized controlled trial." Asia Pacific journal of clinical nutrition 24, no. 3 (2015): 403-411.newTG [Total Triglyceride], uric acid, and ferritin concentrations were significantly decreased after 4 and 8 weeks of supplementation with fish oil and vitamin B-12+fish oil
Qin, Xianhui, Youbao Li, Mingli He, Genfu Tang, Delu Yin, Min Liang, Binyan Wang et al. "Folic acid therapy reduces serum uric acid in hypertensive patients: a substudy of the China Stroke Primary Prevention Trial (CSPPT)." The American journal of clinical nutrition 105, no. 4 (2017): 882-889.newEnalapril-folic acid therapy, compared with enalapril alone, can significantly reduce the magnitude of the increase of UA [Uric Acid] concentrations in hypertensive adults.
Han, Eun Hye, Mi Kyung Lim, Sang Ho Lee, Hyoung Ja Kim, and Dahyun Hwang. "Synergic effect in the reduction of serum uric acid level between ethanol extract of Aster glehni and vitamin B 6." Food science and biotechnology 27, no. 5 (2018): 1439-1444.newAG-D006 [autumn leaf Aster Glehni extract] with vitamin B6 might be used functional foods in reducing serum uric acid level in gout.
Dierkes, Jutta, Reinhard Seifert, Jesse F. Gregory, and Ottar Nygård. "Long-term supplementation with folic acid and vitamin B-12 has no effect on circulating uric acid concentrations in Norwegian patients with coronary artery disease." The American journal of clinical nutrition 107, no. 1 (2018): 130-132.newwe believe that the findings by Qin et al. can best be explained by chance. The temptation would have been strong to believe that simple vitamin supplementation could resolve a metabolic imbalance as complex as elevation of uric acid. In WENBIT [Western Norway B Vitamin Intervention Trial], folic acid supplementation had neither an effect on the risk of cardiovascular events (4) nor on plasma uric acid concentrations. This suggests that folic acid cannot solve the problem of hyperuricemia and its relation to excess cardiovascular risk.
Qin, Xianhui, Youbao Li, and Fan Fan Hou. "Reply to J Dierkes et al." The American journal of clinical nutrition 107, no. 1 (2018): 132-133.newOverall, findings from our 2 previous studies (1, 9) provided consistent evidence that enalapril + folic acid therapy, compared with enalapril alone, can reduce UA concentrations among hypertensive adults with elevated UA. Our findings, if further confirmed in future studies, may offer a simple, safe, and effective way to lower UA, in particular among hypertensive patients residing in low-folate regions.

Vitamin B & Your Uric Acid

Are you concerned about how your vitamin B consumption affects your gout? Then these are some studies that you should discuss with your professional health advisers. But, as you can see from the quotes, this is a controversial topic. Since details from the studies show how results are affected by each gout sufferers individual circumstances. Especially with regard to each gout sufferers comorbidities. So be sure to discuss suitable tests to ensure your uric acid treatment plan is safe and reliable.

I prioritize completion of these studies according to your feedback. So if you want me to publish a review that is still not complete, let me know. Then I can change my priorities according to your needs.
