Today, I want to cover the symptoms of a vitamin B6 deficiency you may have never heard of before.

“They” say it’s rare to become deficient in vitamin B6. However, it’s possible to have a subclinical B6 deficiency that still affects your well-being, even if it’s not a full-blown vitamin B6 deficiency.

Vitamin B6 is important to support a healthy body. Typically, there are no side effects of taking vitamin B6 if you take less than 200 mg daily.

If you take too much vitamin B6, you could experience toxicity effects. However, you would have to consume over 1000 mg of vitamin B6 per day to cause any issues.

Foods rich in vitamin B6 are:
• Beef
• Pork
• Fish
• Chicken

It’s pretty well-known that if you have low vitamin B6, you may experience symptoms, including:
• Rashes around the nose
• Cracks or rashes around the mouth
• Pink eye
• Anemia
• Neurological problems
• Numbness in the hands and feet
• Depression

Surprising symptoms of a vitamin B6 deficiency:
1. Inflammation (especially gut inflammation)
2. Inability to control polyunsaturated fatty acids
3. Deficiencies in neurotransmitters
4. Inability to convert ALA to DHA
5. Poor selenium function
6. Inability to convert tryptophan to niacin
7. Alopecia
8. Seizures
9. High homocysteine levels
10. Increased risk of autism
11. Increased risk of gut pathogens

Causes of vitamin B6 deficiency:
• Processed foods
• Diuretics
• Blood pressure medications
• Antibiotics
• Birth control pills
• Alcohol
• Pregnancy or lactation
• Smoking
• Herbicides
• Ginkgo biloba

    I can always remember having weird things happening to me when I was young that no one else got. Made me think i was crazy or going insane so I would never tell anyone but as I have aged and grown more in my knowledge and as I get older. All they were was just having deficiencies, when you’re a kid you knew no better. Everyday a school day, always learning.

  • Kitty2010 says:

    My cat has seizure due to her mal-nutrition when she was kitten, she was a rescued kitten and I think I might get some B6 to try… Vet told me to give Omega 3 supplement which helps a bit but still she is not fully recovered. I fed her with nutrition yeast a bit, she seems doing better. But I will try to get her B6 supplement. Thank you Dr Berg!!

  • Aden Pakaraonepat says:

    Hi Dr Berg. I am from Thailand and would love to have a consultation by zoom with you if possible. I have urine test and malabsorption and yeast fungal overgrowth shown in the result.
    First I would like to thank you for helping me heal about the stomach acid. It was a life saving. You advice to take Betaine HCL for acid reflux and without watching your video I would never solve my health problem with stomach low acid.
    Thank you so much for everything you do. But I would love to have you do a consultation and reading my result. Thank you

  • mekman4 says:

    I did eat a lot of fish, daily with my OMAD, but I didn’t have much luck in reversing some symptoms until I started consuming Kefir! I’m really glad you pushed for that! Thank you!

  • Sunrae McDonald says:

    Holy Cow, the symptoms you stated at the beginning of this video are all symptoms I had as a child…around 9-11, including the depression!!! I am now 67 and trying desperately to heal my body from my prior life, and so much of the damage happened in childhood. I tried to eat healthy as an adult, but things like probiotics where not even talked about, let alone the bad advice like eating no butter, and only whole wheat. Then, poverty has its own set of issues.

  • Amelia Gabe says:

    Dr. Berg, I like to see your videos and helped a lot! It would be nice to have a book with all the problems caused by vitamins deficiency. It would be handy and also goid like a present. Thank you for all your info you are giving us❤

  • davenetonline says:

    People need to be aware of the fact that despite B6 being water soluble, it has a long half life of 25-33 days. In other words, B6 stays in your body for months before it is eliminated. Correcting toxicity can be a tricky affair given its long half life.

    • net nanny says:

      unfortunately I have a high level of b6 what do I do to bring it down I don’t take any supplements not sure why it’s so high…i do take a vitamin D supplement do you think it caused increase in B6

  • William Bolton says:

    Your book, used, is $800 in hardback, $950 in the paperback edition on Amazon.
    Thanks for sharing all this excellent nutritional information. It’s especially important in a time when allopathic medicine is being shown to be anti-health.

  • Neva Strong says:

    Dr. Berg, thank you for your daily videos. I now watch 1-3 videos every am while having my am coffee. I ordered a probiotic supplement from you for my mother who has suffered from gut issues/diarrhea for 2 years now. 🤞 that she gets some relief.

  • Judith Ann says:

    My nutritional yeast (with no synthetic B vitamins) has 10 mg of B6! Sounds like a good thing to have before going to sleep at night!

  • Badia Zalmaten says:

    Hi dr berg i really appreciate your sharing of your knowledge. Please can u make more videos regarding hyperactive kids and also autism

  • Thomas Hutt says:

    I control my severe problem with trigger finger by taking P-5-P daily. For me, it takes between 200mg and 400mg per day. It works over the long term of a few months. No adverse reactions at all.
