- Low vitamin B6 intake and nutritional status have been associated with impaired immune function, especially in the elderly. Decreased production of immune system cells known as lymphocytes, as well as decreased production of an important immune system protein called interlocking, have been measured in vitamin B6 deficient individuals. Restoration of adequate vitamin B6 status resulted in normalization of the lymphocyte proliferation and interlocking production, suggesting that adequate vitamin B6 intake is important for optimal immune system function in older individuals.
