A 35-year-old male asked:

I have muscle twitches, which could be due to my high vitamin b6 levels (249 vs max 110). how can i decrease these levels? and which foods to avoid?

Stop worrying: Everyone gets muscle twitches from time to time, and usually we never find the explanation. The reference range for B6 simply defines population norms and several percent of healthies by definition fall outside. Any relationship would probably be seeing faces in the clouds. If the twitches do not disable you, I'd urge you to ignore them and increase your aerobic fitness paticipation.
