Life Extension B6, 250mg, 100 caps

Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is an important component of the coenzyme PLP, which metabolizes amino acids. Because of its amino acid transfer ability, the body can produce non-essential amino acids from available amino groups, as well as metabolize protein and urea.

Vitamin B6 is essential because of its participation in more than 100 enzymatic reactions, including protein metabolism, conversion of tryptophan to niacin, and neurotransmitter function, among others.

Found in foods such as eggs, brewer’s yeast, carrots, chicken, fish, brown rice, whole grains, and cabbage, vitamin B6 (along with B12 and folic acid) plays a beneficial role in maintaining already healthy homocysteine levels within normal range.

Homocysteine is produced as a by-product of the demethylation of methionine and can be toxic in elevated amounts.

The health benefits of Vitamin B6 or Pyridoxamine include stimulating co-enzymatic activities, protecting the immune system, and having positive effects on metabolism, premenstrual syndrome, hormone control, emotional disorders, skin conditions, cardiac diseases, kidney disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, anemia, arthritis and influenza.

Vitamin B6, also know as Pyridoxamine, is helpful in treating a vast number of problems related to the heart and skin, as well as depression, fatigue, the nervous system and much more.

It is also helpful in treating other problems like carpal tunnel syndrome, anemia, arthritis and influenza as well as nausea, infertility and other issues which become more prominent during pregnancy.
