Hi everyone, had a little time so I thought I'd stop in. It's great to see the forum growing and having such interesting topics. I found this topic really interesting because I just had to have 3 of my previous stents re-
opened and a new one put in. Scar tissue! Anyway, fine now but because of this information I found I started to take B-vitamins. Like you said, now it's good tomorrow who knows? Everyone take good care of yourselves and I'll try to get back soon.
ARTERY NARROWING STOPPED BY B VITAMIN COMBINATION 2
New England Journal of Medicine. 2004;350(26):2708-10.
A regimen of folate, vitamin B-12 and vitamin B-6 prevented recurrence of blocked arteries in patients who had undergone coronary angioplasty. Patients taking the vitamin combination over the six-month study showed a 48% reduction in the development of restenosis, or renarrowing of the arteries, compared with patients receiving the placebo. The vitamin regimen decreased by 38% the need for repeat angioplasties or heart-bypass operations. Participants were randomly assigned to receive 1 mg folate, 400 mcg vitamin B12 and 10 mg B6 daily.
