I call it the chief B vitamin, because in the case of a Candida overgrowth, the demand for it is significantly increased; it appears to be as important as all the other B vitamins combined. This is because it is needed universally (for digestion, brain function, hormone production, for the immune system and the hematopoietic system), but mostly for the absorption of magnesium, which is needed for a hundred other biochemical reactions and is the deciding factor when it comes to the speed of the recovery.
People with a Candida overgrowth have a B vitamin deficiency, which causes issues with the absorption of magnesium. Because of this, supplementing magnesium usually does not increase the amount of it in the body, it is removed with urine; meanwhile supplementing vitamin B6 in the evening causes the magnesium delivered from food to be absorbed and nourish the body.
PROS: no additives in the preparation, low price.
CONS: a relatively large dose (50g) in a small tablet, which is hard to divide.
USE: for completing basic B complex vitamin supplementation in one dose in the evening or two doses of 25 mg separately.
WHERE TO BUY: in the pharmacy.
