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

Taking more than the recommended daily dose of Vitamin B6
can lead to damage of your nervous system.
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.
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.
If you are on other medications, especially digestive or
anti-parkinsonian drugs, you should consult a doctor
before taking supplements.
