Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that contributes to energy production, brain health, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, red blood cell function, homocysteine metabolism, hormone regulation and more.
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, or P5P as it is commonly known, is the active form of vitamin B6. Like other B vitamins, vitamin B6 cannot be stored by the body. It must therefore be a standard part of the diet in order to avoid a deficiency.
The type of vitamin B6 that is found in most supplements and foods is found in one of three forms; pyridoxine hydrochloride, pyridoxal, or pyridoxamine. Inside the body, these forms of vitamin B6 have to be converted by the liver in order to be utilised. The body converts these forms to the type known as P5P.
Low rates of conversion from the inactive to the active P5P form have been reported, especially in people with impaired liver function, coeliac disease, older adults, and autistic children. By consuming vitamin B6 in the active P5P form, conversion is no longer necessary, and the full benefits are available immediately after absorption.
This B6 complex supplement includes vitamins B1 and B2, which also contribute to energy production, psychological function, nervious system health and red blood cell function. This supplement also contains magnesium and zinc, which are co-factors in the proper utilisation of B6.
