    Can anyone reccomend a vitamin that isn't overloaded with B6 and B12? Seems like everything contains way more than a person needs, and I can't believe that having 6000% or more of my reccomended daily value of anything is all that good.

    Well, I've heard rumors that excessive amounts of either B6 or B12 may cause dementia. If true, it is something I would like to prevent.

    Yeah, it's possible to build toxicities to water-soluble vitamins, but I've never known anyone to do it. My parents could probably count the number of people on their fingers they saw in the many years they worked at the Vanderbilt ICU.

    You should be okay, although I understand if you still want another vitamin. I know none of the top of my head, though, I just take the Ultra Mega Green.
