Save Vitamin B6 and a Woman's Right to Health and Happiness!
This important poliltical issue (linked below) is about Medicure Pharma, a drug company, asking FDA to take a highly effective natural form of vitamin B6, called P5P, off the market so that Medicure can make a drug out of it with no inexpensive competition from health food stores. It's outrageous.
PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome)
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is one of the best remedies to reduce a woman's PMS symptoms, with 200 mg per day of pyridoxine reducing PMS symptoms in 79 percent of the women in a study of 630 women. The P5P form of vitamin B6 that Medicure is trying to control is more effective for more women, with studies showing that people who do not respond adequately to pyridoxine, respond well to P5P B6.
Vitamin B6 is also one of the best natural remedies for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
If we do nothing P5P B6 will likely be made into a drug that costs 10 to 20 times as much as it does today that she cannot get without a doctor's prescription.
