B-6 for MSG Allergy

Recommended Posts

I have been reading on the internet about MSG as my son seems to react to it. I read this and was curious what others thought. My son has KPU/pyroluria and is on B-6/zinc supplements. The quote is in response to a questions about what to do if you think you have problems with MSG.




"Supplement your diet with vitamin B6. If your symptoms, after eating foods containing MSG, disappear or are less intense when you begin the vitamin regiment, you may be experiencing a reaction to MSG as a side effect of a vitamin B6 deficiency. Researchers found that more than 80 percent of test subjects quit reacting to MSG after taking 50 mg of vitamin B6 for 12 weeks."


This is really interesting to me as before PANDAS a year ago, I don't recall my son ever having problems with MSG. So did the KPU (whether caused by infection or was something he was born with that was set off by adoscence) cause my son's current MSG problems? And can I have hopes it will go away as we treat KPU? What has been your experience?

Interesting! Both my dd's react to MSG. One is being treated for KPU.


My non KPU girl (dd10) has been getting 25 mg of B6 in her multi vitamin for months now. I don't seem to notice the MSG reaction as much in her as I do my KPU girl (dd8). I will pay attention as we continue treatment.
