Vitamin B6 is an essential co-factor in over 300 chemical reactions in the body, some of the more important of which include:

  • Blood sugar balance
    • Release of stored cellular glucose (glycogen)
    • Conversion of protein into glucose
    • Release of fat from fat cells to be burned for energy
  • Detoxification, especially all phase 2 detoxification pathways
  • Oestrogen and Progesterone metabolism, especially in the premenstrual period
  • Healthy Methylation & homocysteine levels
  • Haemoglobin synthesis
  • Cell membrane health (phospholipid synthesis)
  • Protein balance (transamination reactions)
  • Neurotransmitter synthesis for healthy Mood, Thought, Emotions, and Sleep – B6 is essential for the normal production of dopamine, serotonin, melatonin, and GABA

Dietary vitamin B6 comes in several forms as a food supplement. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is the metabolically active form of vitamin B6.
