What are the signs you may be deficient in vitamin B6?
A person may experience skin rashes, cracked and sore lips, a glossy tongue, mood changes, weakened immune function, tiredness and low energy, tingling and pain in hands and feet, seizures and high homocysteine.
Homocysteine is a byproduct created during protein digestion.
A B6 deficiency, as well as folate and B12, can result in an abnormally high blood level of homocysteine, as these B vitamins are needed to help process homocysteine.
Increased homocysteine levels have been linked with several health issues, most notably heart disease and stroke, as well as Alzheimer’s disease.
