A Very Key B

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that 1/4 of Americans are not getting enough B6 in their diets. Adequate B6 levels are important to the heart, the immune system and brain function. The current RDA for B6 is 1.3 milligrams.

Here are some foods that will help insure that you are getting enough B6 in your diet: 

4 oz yellowfin tuna = 1.18 mg

1 banana = 0.68 mg

4 oz roasted chicken breast = 0.64 mg

1 cup cooked spinach = 0.44 mg

1 cup potato (with skin) = 0.42 mg

1 cup avocado = 0.41 mg
