Reasons for Shortage of Vitamin-B6: Bad Diet & ‘Bad Medicines!’

Vitamin-B6 Deficiency may lead to:

Fatigue, Muscle Ache (Helps Control Muscular Degeneration), Psychometric Problems (Nervousness, Depression, Irritability, Memory Loss), Various Skin Ailments…

Rich Source of Vitamin-B6:

Plant Sources:           Cereals, Lentils, Beans, Spinach, Carrots, Brown Rice, Wheat Germ, Wheat, Chillies, Black Sesame Seeds Oil, Lemon Juice…

Fruit Sources:            Pine-Apple, Bananas…

Animal Sources:        A-2 Milk, Cheese…

My View it is best to Avoid Synthetic Supplements and Only Go in For Organic Sources.

There could be high loss of Vitamin-B6 in eatables due Cooking, Processing or Storing for many Hours. (Anyway, I have mentioned, Not to Eat State food is Essential First Step in handling First Side of The Triangle!).

Daily Recommended Values: For Adults DRV ranges Upto 2 mg/Day.

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
