B-Complex without Vitamin C?

I am limited as to my Vitamin C intake because of kidney stone problems. Do any of you know a B-Complex supplement that doesn't contain additional Vitamin C?

Re: B-Complex without Vitamin C?

Big 100 from GNC has no C in it. I am reading the label now.

B1 100mg
B2 100mg
Niacin 100mg
B6 100mg
Folic Acid 400mcg
B12 100mcg
Biotin 100mcg
Pantothenuc Acid 100mg
Choline 100mg
Inositol 100mcg
PABA 30mg

I use to take the ones from Walgreens too that had no C in them. I forget the name brand though.

Re: B-Complex without Vitamin C?

Anyone know anything about a link between Niacin and headaches? I started a new B-Complex and within two days had a two day migrane. SEems like I've heard something about that.

Interesting...I have taken a variety of B-Complex supps over the years - none of which I found to include C. Hmmm...

As for your headaches - YES! Niacin absolutely could trigger a headache and/or migraine as it is considered a vasodilator.

Well, now my B-Complex problem becomes, well, more complex I need one without C but not a ton of Niacin. My old B-Complex I think had no more than 25mg. Maybe less than that.
