What is VITAMIN B6 and where does it come from?
VITAMIN B6, also known as Pyridoxine is a water-soluble member of the B vitamin family. It is sometimes referred to as the "workhorse" of nutrients because it is part of over 100 biological functions in the body. VITAMIN B6 is primarily a coenzyme, which means that it works with other enzymes to support chemical reactions in the cells.
A part of the group of essential nutrients known as the B Complex, VITAMIN B6 is one of the most important nutrients needed to maintain good physical and mental health.
What does VITAMIN B6 do?
This particular vitamin is necessary for the production of over 100 different enzymes the body uses to metabolise proteins. VITAMIN B6 is also involved in the formation of red blood cells, the production of proteins and neurotransmitters and the release of stored energy.
Essential for proper brain function, VITAMIN B6 aids in the production of important hormones including serotonin and norepinephrine (which influence mood) and melatonin (which helps regulate the body clock).
