Vitamin B6 is found naturally in our foods. B6 supplements are the main reason for toxicity of vitamin B6. Long term (2+ years) supplementation of 500-5,000mg/day will result in medical issues, such as neuropathy which maybe reversible with discontinuing the supplement and lowering high B6 foods. The recommended daily dose is 1.3mg for men & women ages 19-50 and 1.7 for men >50 years old. The amount you are consuming is within normal recommended daily amounts. If you are really concerned, suggest only getting your vitamin B6 from food sources which has the added benefit of fiber, and other vitamins/minerals. Hoped this helped you.
