Douglas Labs  B-6 100mg  250 Tabs


DESCRIPTION
B-6, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 100 mg of Vitamin B-6(Pyridoxine) in each tablet.

INDICATIONS B-6 tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to increase their intake of vitamin B-6. 

FUNCTIONS
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and other nitrogen compounds. In the liver, pyridoxine is essential for glucose production from amino acids via its role as coenzyme for the transaminase enzymes. Pyridoxine is also needed by the liver and muscles to make stored glycogen available for glucose production, and to synthesize niacin from the amino acid tryptophan. In red blood cells, pyridoxine is needed for hemoglobin synthesis, and regulates its oxygen affinity. Additionally, steroid hormone action is modulated by pyridoxine at the receptor level. In the nervous system, pyridoxine is needed to synthesize several neurotransmitters, such as serotonin (from tryptophan), taurine, dopamine, norepinephrine, histamine and gammaaminobutyric acid (GABA). Many experimental and clinical observations support the fact that adequate amounts of dietary vitamin B6 are required to maintain normal nervous system function. 

SUGGESTED USE Adults take 1 tablet daily or as directed by physician.

SIDE EFFECTS No adverse side effects have been reported.
