Worried About Taking Vitamin B6

Some people have asked about the vitamin B6 they are taking as a result of using the Nerve Support Formula. This question is one that people ask about any B6 in any formula.

The Linus Pauling Institute found that adverse effects have only been documented from vitamin B6 supplements and never from food sources.

Therefore, safety concerning only the supplemental form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, also called pyridoxine hydrochloride) is discussed here.

Although vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin and is excreted in the urine, long-term supplementation with very high doses of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) may result in painful neurological symptoms known as sensory neuropathy.

Symptoms include pain and numbness of the extremities and in severe cases, difficulty walking. Sensory neuropathy typically develops at doses of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) in excess of 1,000 mg a day.

However, there have been a few case reports of individuals who developed sensory neuropathies at doses of less than 500 mg of Vitamin B6 daily over a period of months.

None of the studies in which a neurological examination was performed reported evidence of sensory nerve damage at intakes below 200 mg of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) daily.

To prevent sensory neuropathy in virtually all individuals, the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine set the tolerable upper intake level for pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) at 100 mg/day for adults.

Please let me know if this answers any questions you might have had on this subject.

What is MCTs?

What are MCTs?

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are healthy fats that are burned by the body for energy, or ‘fuel’, instead of being stored as fat.* These MCTs are sourced from coconut oil. MCTs can turn into ketones, which provide an alternative fuel source for greater fat burning potential.

Insulin Does More than Lowering Blood Sugar

Insulin is necessary, but too much Insulin due to high amounts of sugar and carbs leads to Insulin Resistance and eventually to diabetes if not addressed properly.  There is good evidence that high amounts of insulin in the blood leads to coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and many other problems.

Cutting down on insulin by eating fats, protein and veggies will not only cut so much insulin in the blood stream but will also get insulin resistant cells to be insulin sensitive – a good thing.

There is a lot written about this.   Most often the Ketogenic Diet is considered a way to lose weight – but so much more.  The theory you don’t get healthy by losing weight, you get Healthy to Lose Weight.

But even if you aren’t overweight, building health is a good thing.
