No, if anything it will increase gains as it inhibits prolactin production, and prolactin lowers testosterone . The amount of benefit though is probably negligable as your prolactin levels would have to be pretty high

there was a study posted where over 200 mg of b6 a day can hinder gains. I think Mudman posted it.
sorry if I am wrong... it wouldnt be the first time.

I posted the study. It showed (in vitro) that B6 severely reduced AR-mediated gene expression. For that reason, I've switched to cabergoline only for prolactin issues.....not to mention it just provides a general feel good effect

Vitamin B6 is usually safe, at intakes up to 200 mg per day in adults.7 However, neurological side effects can sometimes occur at that level.8 Levels higher than 200 mg are more likely to cause such problems. Vitamin B6 toxicity can damage sensory nerves, leading to numbness in the hands and feet as well as difficulty walking. The National Academy of Sciences performed an analysis of vitamin B6 studies. They determined the safe upper limit for long-term use is 100 mg per day. However, under supervision of a healthcare professional, up to 200 mg per day of vitamin B6 can be safely taken by most men and nonpregnant women for limited periods of time. Pregnant and breast-feeding women should not take more than 100 mg of vitamin B6 per day without a doctor’s supervision.
Since vitamin B6 increases the bioavailability of magnesium, these nutrients are sometimes taken together.
