Older women who take supplements with high doses of vitamins B6 and B12 may be more likely than those who don’t to experience hip fractures, a US study suggests.

While some previous research has linked both of these vitamins to a lower risk of heart disease, results have been mixed, with some studies also tying B6 and B12 to fractures in older adults, researchers note in JAMA Network Open.
