Japanese scientists from the University of Hiroshima have found that a lack of vitamin B6 complicates the course of COVID-19, as it can alleviate cycotine shock in patients infected with coronavirus.

The results of the study were published in the journal MedicalXpress.

According to the author of the study, Professor Tanutchaporn Kumrungsee, vitamin B6 helps to fight the effects of the disease: it reduces inflammation, alleviates oxidative and carbonyl stress, prevents thrombosis, and reduces the amount of inflammasomes responsible for activating the inflammatory response.

Experts have found that those with chronic inflammation, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease have poorer immune defenses due to low vitamin B6 levels compared to healthier people.
