I just found this information on that B6. Does anyone find it true or false?

Jen: So so interesting and now I am wondering.... I was checking out the site above and noticed the references at the end. Notice that all the references are old except 4; 2 are recent articles and 2 are reviews of those articles. So, I thought I'd check out two authors of the articles. I traced two on reference 11 and saw they spoke at the International Symposium on Glutamate. Most of the presenters had such titles as Function and Importance of Glutamate for Savory Foods, Sensory Enhancement of Foods for the Elderly with MSG and Flavors, etc. There were others I couldn't tell if they were pro or con but ALL of the conference was under the head topic of Umami and promoted/promoting Nutrition books. Let me just give you the site and you tell me: are we seeing a way to take old reports, add new articles, have conferences using words other than msg in order to say that msg is safe? This international glutamate conference I think was sponsored by the Society for Resesarch on Umami Taste, but it's all msg folks and they're for it. That site is www.iijnet.or.jp/srut/publications .

Jen, Oh yes I believe others do take B6. I've read that it helps some folks on this board.

A Google search on B6 + nausea turns up a whole bunch of websites saying that B6 can help with nausea during pregnancy.

Also as probably most people who regularly read this website know, B6 deficiency can cause sensitiveness to MSG.

Question:
Is there an easy definite test for B6 deficiency?

Jerry,

Some labs sell blood tests for vitamin deficiencies, although I can't vouch for their accuracy.

Jerry – I don’t know answer to your question but perhaps, these references may help:

What does your blood test mean? ---- http://www.mercola.com/forms/mpt.htm --- “Low levels of SGPT and SGOT may indicate deficiency of vitamin B6.”

http://home3.inet.tele.dk/omni/alttest.htm --- “The Mean Corpuscular Volume …. Increased readings may indicate …B6 ….deficiency ….” --- “Increased MCHC …. may indicate ….. B6 deficiency of thalassemia.”

http://www.ecureme.com/emyhealth/data/Vitamin_B6_Deficiency.asp --- "A blood test that measures pyridoxal phosphate can be done to determine the amount of Vitamin B6 in the body."

"Vitamin B-6 deficiency can be caused by the use of monoamine oxidase-inhibiting antidepressants."
Juices high in B-6: "kale, spinach, turnip greens, sweet peppers"
Source: Juicing for Life by Cheri Calbom and Maureen Keane.
Just thought I'd mention since I seem to recall some fellow no-msgers are on antidepressants.
