Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate for Good Nutritional Support

B6 or Pyridoxine is essential for the metabolism of protein as it helps to convert glycogen into glucose which can be used by your muscles for energy.
Pyridoxal-5-phosphate, the liver metabolized form of B6, is an important co-factor in the regulation of 26 aminotransferases, enzymes that regulate the proper pathways for our neuroendocrine system. If you are deficient in B6, you may form kidney stones when you eat sugars such as fructose or galactose. Women need higher doses of B6 than men because we lose more B6 in our urine. Women taking birth control pills to control menopausal excess bleeding
can become depleted of B6, which results in disturbances in the metabolism of tryptophan. This can cause depression, anxiety, decreased sex drive and impaired glucose tolerance. B6 is important in lowering homocysteine levels in blood. Pyridoxal-5-phosphate, the liver metabolized form of B6, is the active component. You’ll find Pyridoxal-5-phosphate in our store.
