    I am not sure where you obtained your source but to have the source say that B6 “cures” PMS is a bit of a stretch. It certainly can help with it. May woman on birth control have decreased B6 levels related to the effects of the pill.
    calcium and magensium also another players involved in helping to manage PMS.
    B6 is also helpful for woman experiencing morning sickness.
    B12 is helpful for maintain congnitive fxn and the nervous system.
    B5- is very abundant in our diet and a deficiency is rare. The point “Taken by mouth to treat insomnia, depression, headaches, dandruff…etc.” seems like it is the miracle vitamin.
    I know your intention is to educate people and encourage people to ensure they are meeting their nutritional needs which ever diet they are following but it would be helpful to have the references listed with any education piece. As you know, there is so much information out on the internet and many is not proven or supported by reliable and sound evidence.
