We investigated the effect of pyridoxine
supplementation on the utilization of protein in a low-protein,
plant-based diet in four subjects (2 men and
2 women), aged 21 to 38 years. Following two days of a
negligible protein diet, this 34 day study was divided into
three dietary periods: the subjects...
Previous studies have found that smoking may have a negative effect on
vitamin B-6 indices and have demonstrated a possible association between smoking
and depressed plasma pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) concentration. Individuals with
plasma PLP values below the adequate level of 30 nmoles/L might benefit from
consumption of vitamin B-6 supplements, but...
The effect of vitamin B-6 (B-6) status on plasma fatty acids (FA) levels and lipid
metabolism was investigated in this metabolic study. Eight female subjects were fed for 28
days. For the first 7 days, they were fed a constant diet containing 2.10 mg of B-6. For the
