Vitamin B6 Status & Depression


A recent cross-sectional study involving 422 municipal employees (aged 21-67 years) who participated in a baseline survey in 2006 for cross-sectional analysis, and 210 subjects without depressive symptoms at baseline (2006) who completed both baseline and follow-up (2009) surveys for prospective analysis, found that a higher vitamin B6 status may be associated with a decreased risk of depressive symptoms. In longitudinal analyses, higher B6 concentrations at baseline were associated with a trend toward reduced depressive symptoms after 3 years. These results highlight the relationship between vitamin B6 status and depression in adults.
