Remove Vitamin B6 Supplements and B6 Fortified Products

Stop taking any vitamins, minerals or supplements that have B6 (pyridoxine, P5P) as an ingredient. You will want to check all of your supplements for added pyridoxine, P5P, PLP or pyridoxal-5-phosphate (all terms for different forms of B6). B6 is added to many supplements. Some of the most common supplements with added B6 are melatonin and magnesium.

Remove fortified and enriched foods like breakfast cereals, energy bars and energy drinks. Fortified means the vitamin was added to the food that was not originally in the food. The vitamin will be listed in the nutrients section with the percentage RDA (examples: cereals). Enriched means the vitamin was added back in because some were lost in processing. The word pyridoxine will be listed as an ingredient (an example is the vitamin-enriched peanut butter).

You will also want to check labels carefully. There are many health products that add in B6. Several members have gotten toxic off added B6 in Emergen-C, Powerade, Melatonin.
