FDA bans vitamin B6 threaten US heathcare contributes to mental depression in ruling
FDA has effectively bans a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6
The FDA has effectively banned a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6 called pyridoxamine by declaring it to be a drug, reports the American Association for Health Freedom. Responding to a petition filed by a drug company, the FDA declared pyridoxamine to be "a new drug." This article continues at: http://www.naturalnews.com/025606.html
Large Scale Study Finds Vitamin B6 Deficiency Common in the U.S.
Implications of Vitamin B6 Deficiency
Neurological Abnormalities including depression and cognitive dysfunction
In its role as a vital coenzyme, B6 is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters including serotonin. B6 is required to form serotonin from the amino acid tryptophan. It is also required to synthesize dopamine, norepinephrine and GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). "Early symptoms of vitamin B6 deficiency include depression and confusion" according to Eleanor Noss Whitney and Sharon Rady Rolfes, authors of the text Understanding Nutrition.
Based on the findings of the Tufts study, that B6 deficiency is indeed widespread in the U.S., as is depression, shouldn't plasma B6 (PLP) be assessed in cases of depression and cognitive dysfunction prior to resorting to misused, prescription anti depressant drugs? Is B6 deficiency, along with other nutrient deficiencies like essential fatty acid omega 3, one more link to understanding the underlying causes of depression? http://www.naturalnews.com/023586.html
Drugs and Suppliment Mayo Clinic
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine and for myelin formation.
Pyridoxine deficiency in adults principally affects the peripheral nerves, skin, mucous membranes, and the blood cell system. In children, the central nervous system (CNS) is also affected. Deficiency can occur in people with uremia, alcoholism, cirrhosis, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption syndromes, congestive heart failure (CHF), and in those taking certain medications.
Pyridoxine is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in vitamin B complex formulations. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/vit.../NS_pa...
Serious health problems will occur as a result of this ruling . It is obvious that this is a continuation of "Drug America" with political objectives (Codex Alimentarius Commission) and the profits of the pharmaceutical an mental health industry.
This (IMO) is an attempt to control Tryptophan (an essential amino acid) for heath and mental stability as B6 is a catalyst for absorption of the amino acid.
