Researchers from the Parker Research Institute in Dallas found a combination of vitamins B-1, B-6 and B-12 effectively reduced pain in rats. Although results are preliminary, the study opens the door for scientists to examine the role of these B vitamins for treating pain in humans. Past human studies have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of vitamin B-6 in carpal tunnel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome and morning sickness.
