What is the best form of vitamin B6?

Your body can absorb the supplement form of B6 vitamins, made from pyridoxine hydrochloride, just as well as it can absorb natural sources including animal proteins.

Symptoms of vitamin B6 deficiency may include itchiness, depression, dry or scaly skin around the mouth, and changes to one’s mental state.

You can consume some vitamin B6 naturally through the foods you eat, such as tuna, salmon, chickpeas, and dark leafy greens.
