Advanced Info

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is necessary for protein metabolism, energy production and normal nervous system function. Vitamin B6 is involved in nearly 60 enzyme systems in the body and is needed for normal growth, red blood cell synthesis and vitamin B12 absorption.

It has often been called "the woman's vitamin" because it is so helpful for premenstrual syndrome, and may help the depression associated with the use of oral contraceptives. Vitamin B6 may also help prevent nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.

Research has shown that vitamin B6 (usually in doses of 50–200 mg/day) can prevent or relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and may be helpful for asthma.

Vitamin B6 supplementation, in conjunction with folic acid and vitamin B12, can lower homocysteine levels, thus reducing the risk for cardiovascular disease. By inhibiting the production of oxalate, vitamin B6 may prevent calcium oxalate kidney stone recurrence.

If you take a single high dose of one B vitamin, increase the amount of all the others as they work together and compete for absorption in the intestine.
