The FDA is allowing a company to take over vitamin B6 to make it a prescription only vitamin. And another company wants to do this with the metabolically active form of B6, known as pyridoxal-5′-phosphate. I surmise that the pharmaceutical companies are seeing the potential drop in their profits as we become educated about what really makes us healthy, viz when we take charge of our health and not just surrender to doctors to get prescriptions for every little ailment.
I am really angry about this, in case if you did not guess. Next up? How about needing to get our steel cut oats by prescription because some company has taken it over for cholesterol control. Or perhaps another company will force us to get bananas by prescription because they are such a good source of potassium.
Please!! Write your Senators and Representatives that this is unacceptable. You can get more information at http://www.anh-usa.org/alert-protect-your-right-to-natural-and-bio-available-vitamin-b-6/
