What is Vitamin B6? How does it help reduce the risk of cancer?
Obtaining vitamin B6 through diet may help to reduce the risk of certain cancers. However, vitamin B6 cannot reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. Long-term use of B6 supplements may increase the risk of lung cancer in male smokers.
Studies suggest dietary intake of vitamin B6 may decrease the risk for colorectal and pancreatic cancers, and lower intakes are associated with an increased risk of some gastrointestinal cancers. Dietary B6 may also reduce the risk of ovarian cancer and all cancers, although this may occur because of the many other micronutrients that are also ingested. Supplementation with B6, B12, and folate did not decrease breast cancer risk.
