This is a phenomenon that i discovered many years ago when i was looking into bio-chemical factors that were causing my chronic health problems.
that regularly came up in vitamin panel blood work was a high vitamin
b6(pyridoxine) blood serum reading, despite having not consumed any
vitamin b6 containing supplements or fortified foods.
actually some scientific research which documents this high vitamin b6
blood serum level in children with Autistic spectrum disorders, despite
having not supplemented. Full study can be viewed at - Abnormally
high plasma levels of vitamin B6 in children with autism not taking
supplements compared to controls not taking supplements.
study concluded the reason for the high vitamin b6(pyridoxine) level
was due to impaired conversion to its active forms such as PLP and P5P.
Conversion of pyridoxine to active P5P requires healthy levels of other nutrients such as vitamin B2(riboflavin) and magnesium.
These individuals may benefit from consuming an Active Vitamin B Complex, which contains the co-enzyme and "active" forms of these B-complex vitamins.
possible genetic inability to convert pyridoxine to active
P5P(Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) may be common in individuals of European and
Test below was done about 7-8 years ago. (Click to view full-size image).
Id love to hear from others who had a high vitamin B6(pyridoxine) blood plasma reading despite having consumed no vitamin b6 supplements.
