VITAMIN B6


THE BREAKDOWN

  • Improves the immune systems
  • Produces hormones and proteins
  • Maintains healthy hair growth and skin reproduction
  • Helps to build genetic cellular materials


IN THE BODY
The presence of a daily dose of B6 is absolutely necessary.


WITHDRAWALS
Lack of Vitamin B6 in the body can cause loss of appetite, dermatitis, convulsions, and a decreased functionality of the immune system. In addition, the absence of B6 is also known to lead to the development of kidney stones, heart problems and carpal tunnel syndrome. It is also a leading cause of depression.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Vitamin B6 can be found in fish, meat, eggs, dairy and grains (particularly whole grains).Women 1.6 mg


DAILY DOSE
  • Women over 50 1.5 mg
  • Men 1.3 mg
  • Men over 50 1.7
  • During pregnancy 1.9 mg
  • Lactation 2.0 mg

OVER DOSAGE
Taking more than the recommended daily dose of Vitamin B6 can lead to damage of your nervous system.


FIGHTING AGENTS
If you have a heavy intake of alcohol, estrogen, antidepressants, or are a heavy smoker, your body may not be receiving the B6 you are taking.


SUPPLEMENTS
Taking supplements for Vitamin B6 can help reduce the risk of mood disorders, PMS, high levels of stress, vomiting during pregnancy or skin problems, such as dry and itchy skin.


WARNINGS
If you are on other medications, especially digestive or anti-parkinsonian drugs, you should consult a doctor before taking supplements.
