Vitamin B6 can be obtained from food and natural sources. In some foods, vitamin B6 co-exists with other valuable nutrients like potassium and omega-3 fatty acids.

Fortified cereals, like those made with rice and buckweat, have high levels of vitamin B6. Yellowfin tuna in your diet is a good source of vitamin B6. Three ounces of the fish can contribute 0.88 mg of the nutrient.

A cup of homemade hashed brown potatoes can generate 0.73 mg of vitamin B6, easily more than what you need for half a day. A cup of buckwheat flour has 0.70 mg of vitamin B6, more than what you need for half a day.

Beef is also a good source of the nutrient. A cup of turkey meat can generate 0.84 mg of vitamin B6, nearly two-thirds of your daily requirement. Organic free-range birds are also good sources of vitamin B6.

Brown rice contains more nutrients than bleached rice. Just a cup of white rice can generate 0.84 mg of vitamin B6, nearly two-thirds of the day’s requirements.

A cup of roasted chestnuts can generate 0.71 mg of Vitamin B6, more than what you require for half a day.

Another fish that is a good source of vitamin B6 is halibut. It can give you 0.63 mg per half fillet, nearly half a day's requirement.

A cup of chickpeas, a staple of vegetarians and non-vegetarians, has 1.13 mg of vitamin B6
