This product provides pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (P-5-P), the active coenzyme form of vitamin B6 that plays an important role in more than 100 different metabolic steps.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health including protein and amino acid metabolism, red blood cell formation, and synthesis of antibodies important for optimal immune responses. Vitamin B6 also helps maintain normal brain function as it is required for the production of several important neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Major food sources of vitamin B6 include whole grains, bananas, nuts, and meat.
Pyridoxal 5′-Phosphate (P-5-P) is a form of vitamin B6 with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms. Although pyridoxine hydrochloride is the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in dietary supplements, it must be converted to the active coenzyme form, P-5-P, to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, certain medications, compromised liver function, and enzyme defects can reduce the body’s ability to convert B6 forms such as pyridoxine hydrochloride to P-5-P. In contrast, vitamin B6 as P-5-P is already fully “active” and readily usable, as it does not require further transformation in the body.
This product can be used whenever a need for supplemental vitamin B6 exists. This dietary supplement is free of common allergens including milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans.
Suggested Use: One capsule daily with food or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
