Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is an important nutrient, as it helps us to use and store energy from foods. It also fosters the growth of red blood cells. Vitamin B6 processes certain amino acids (proteins), which may somehow reduce nausea. Dozens of clinical trials have shown that Vitamin B6, although the mechanism of action is unknown, may help with various forms of nausea from chemo induced to pregnancy.
