The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) Europe has critiqued “gross irregularities” in the scientific process used by EFSA to consider halving the safe maximum daily limit of vitamin B6 from supplements.
Obese women who took vitamin C and B6 at amounts that exceeded the recommended daily intake levels were associated with a lower risk of breast cancer, according to a five-year long South Korean cohort study.
An analysis of different diets and their impact on Vit B6 status has found no link between plant-based diets and vitamin deficiency as supplements are revealed to be the strongest predictor of sufficiency.
The Swedish food supplement industry is breathing a sigh of relief that a sales ban imposed on vitamin B6 supplements that exceed “EFSA-recommended upper limits” has been overturned by a Swedish court.
New raw material supplier TR International is to distribute a
bioavailable form of vitamin B6 made by Shanghai Jiubang, giving
American supplement makers an alternative to the more expensive
product made in Europe.
