Vitamin B6 is provided in this product to help support optimal absorption and utilization of magnesium, as these nutrients may be involved in some of the same important bodily processes.
If you are already consuming a balanced diet containing sufficient levels of B vitamins, or if you are using a balanced multivitamin, and you do not need additional vitamin B6, you might consider our Optimal Magnesium product, which provides a similar dose and forms of magnesium, but without the vitamin B6. Certain individuals may have higher needs for vitamin B6 based on unique factors such as age, weight, existing conditions, diet, genetics, etc. For those individuals, using a combination magnesium-B6 product may have been suggested by a healthcare professional or otherwise determined to be appropriate. If your healthcare professional has suggested using a magnesium-B6 product, we recommend adhering to his/her suggestion. If you are unsure whether a combination product or standalone magnesium is best for you, we recommend that you consult with a healthcare professional for testing and help finding the best product to suit your needs.*
