General comment and question...

A few years ago, my doctor suggested I take a B50 tablet and extra B12. He did this after taking a test for B12 and doing other lab work. Later, he increased the B12 to a very high dosage. The B50 tablet has a variety of B vitamins in it; including 50 mgs. of B6 in it. It has improved my energy level and folks were so impressed by this...they went out and bought some B50 for themselves!

Dream Recall
I have heard that the B vitamins, perhaps B6 in particular, influence dream recall. I once experiment with taking a B75 and it did seem that I had more dream recall. However, I cut back down to the B50 again because I was concerned about taking too much of the B6. Does anyone know if the B vitamins influence dream recall? What is this all about?

Thank you.

Yes, B6 influences dream recall. One sign of pyroluria, which creates a deficiency of B6 and zinc, is inability to recall dreams.

B6 is needed to make serotonin, which then is used to make melatonin.
MethylB12 is used in this conversion to melatonin. Melatonin is the natural sleep hormone, and necessary for all the sleep stages to work properly.
REM is one sleep stage.

This site has some other ideas too.

For those with good insurance. Metanx is a prescription Vitamin B supplement with methylated B12, Methylated Folate, and P-5-P. I have a good link, but apparently I am not yet allowed to put links in my posts.

Lightbulb I'll put it up...

I've recommended Metanx for a long time now. It is RX only, and some insurances do not pay for it still. I've posted it many times here.

I have noticed the website is different now. Not sure what that means.

http://www.metanx.com/

I find it interesting that all 3 activated B's are in it. I see this as a good sign for patients.

There is another RX vitamin called Cerefolin.
http://www.pamlab.com/Products,Cerefolin
This has P5P removed, and NAC -- n-acetyl cysteine added.
The NAC is to promote synthesis of glutathione.

There are studies showing methylcobalamin is very helpful to prevent neuro degeneration and neuropathies.

I find it fascinating that these vitamins help some people with symptoms of "schizophrenia". Me thinks that should be called symptoms of needing B vitamins instead of symptoms of "schizophrenia".

As for the new look of the website.... I cannot find the "Unaffected by the MTHFR polymorphism page which was EXCELLENT. The link had been: metanx.com/UnaffectedByTheCTPolymorphism which no longer works.

It showed the cycle using the vitamins. Maybe too many people were hitting the website just for that page?

I tried this and got some burning symptoms. I thought maybe it was the amount or ratio of folic acid in it for me.

So I combine them separately with the folic acid at a much lower level and am fine.

Life Extension has this: Pyridoxamine/B6/50 mg.
However, their B complex has something else for B6. This is causing a dilemma for me, since I don't really want to give up my B Complex (I take additional B12 along with it).
