Needs

The 100% value in the RNI Nutrimeter ® is 1.8 mg per day for adult males and 1.5 mg for adult women.

Different neurological findings at high doses of vitamin B6 led the experts of the Council of Public Hygiene to provide a dose safety limit of 5 mg per day over the usual consumption (we retain a value of 300% the Nutrimeter ®).
