Thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency is common in individuals exposed to aldehyde compounds, particularly alcoholics, as aldehyde metabolism utilizes vitamin B1. Vitamin B6 is a cofactor for the biochemical pathways necessary for the body's clearance of aldehyde compounds. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6, is better utilized by individuals with an excessive burden of chemical toxins because these individuals can have a compromised liver and vitamin B6 is converted to its active form in the liver. Selenium is a cofactor for glutathione utilization, which is essential for detoxification. Bifidobacterium bifidum has been used for clearing aldehydes in the intestinal tract. Pantethine, the active form of vitamin B5, increases the activity of aldehyde dehydrogenase, the enzyme that metabolizes acetaldehyde.
