Hi everyone Dr Cris here with The Ask Dr Cris show. The next question is about intense flavours somebody’s craving things with intense flavour, like chilli and dark chocolate, and anything with a really tense rich flavour. That can be actually a signal of B6 deficiency interestingly enough which will change your taste buds and makes you crave those really intense, bitter, deep flavours as well. You could try and obviously curve that with things like dandelion, dandelion root tea, which also has that bitter flavour and certainly something like St Mary’s Thistle, St John’s Wort can help curve that as well through liver health and improving liver health. So having your B6 levels checked and making sure they are okay and supplementing with B6 might just help curve those intense flavour cravings or sensations.
