Product Description

Pyridoxine, also known as vitamin B6, paricipates in more than 140 enzymatic reactions in the body; it is necessary for metabolizing amino acids, including energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis. Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P5P) is the active form (does not require activation by the liver) of Vitamin B6 to provide optimal utilization. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the production of hemoglobin, intrinsic factor, and is a vital component in the formation of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells.  B6 also converts glutamates to glutamine, lowering levels of glutamates, which are frequently high in individuals within the autism spectrum.  Excessive levels of glutamates can act as excito-toxins, over-exciting neurons and causing neuronal damage.  In order for pyridoxine to be used by the body it must first be converted to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (P5P), a process that takes place in the liver.   Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency. Supplementing with Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate ensures you receive the most bioactive form of vitamin B6.*
