The Vitamin B6 supplement (pyridoxine) is an essential nutrient and important to overall health as it acts as a partner for more than one hundred enzymes (enzymes speed up a specific biochemical reaction), including protein metabolism, and the conversion of Tryptophan into niacin, which in turn impacts serotonin (a neurotransmitter involved in mood control) production, neurotransmitter function, along with others.
Vitamin B6 is needed for REM sleep (the restorative part of the sleep cycle), for the production of hydrochloric acid (stomach acid), for the absorption of fats and proteins, and for immune system support.
It also supports the creation of amino acids, and helps, in combination with folic acid (vitamin B9) and vitamin B12, to lower and maintain healthy homocysteine levels - high levels may be a risk factor heart disease and memory loss.
As we age, the way in which the body utilises vitamin B6 become less efficient, therefore, you may need to increase your intake as you get older.
Pregnant women may find that vitamin B6 can effectively help decrease the severity of morning sickness and nausea.
All B vitamins are water soluble and leave the body quickly, therefore, should be taken twice a day.
