Vitamin B6 advice

I’ve recently been looking into taking a Vitamin B complex, but after doing a bit of research it seems as though B6 which would be part of a complex can actually have an adverse effect it taken long term, apparently it can damage nerve paths .

I was wondering if anyone takes a vitamin B complex or just goes for individual B’s such as B12 ?

Yeah Ellie that seems to be my way of thinking as well. Apparently you cant “over take” B12 either. Like you I thought taking a complex would be a good base, but theres lots of info on the issue of taking B6 long term apparently causing damage to nerve paths, even mimicking symptoms of MS, such as tingling and numbness .
