Supplements Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, pyridoxal and pyriodoxamine, is a water-soluble vitamin involved in a wide variety of functions throughout the body.
The colon is the exception, as it houses a variety of organisms which form vitamins such as pyridoxine, vitamin B-12, biotin, vitamin K and folic acid.
Furosemide also increases excretion of ascorbic acid and pyridoxine. 6
Kuhn called it adermin (pyridoxine) and this immediately became a new focal point of his research strategy.

I recommend 25–100 mg daily of B6 in the form of pyridoxal-5-phosphate, or pyridoxine, 400–800 mg daily of folic acid, and 50–200 mcg daily of B12.
The main sources of pyridoxine are wheat bran, pulses, cereals, walnuts, milk, liver and fresh vegetables.
If you feel you are losing your ability to reason or think clearly, or if you suffer mood disorders such as depression, ask your doctor to do blood tests for homocysteine, folic acid, pyridoxine and vitamin B12.
