Pyridoxal-5-phosphate is the metabolically active form of vitamin B-6. It’s involved in numerous body functions, but it is especially important to protein syntheses, such as in the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and GABA, antibodies of the immune system, oxygen-hungry muscle cells and oxygen-carrying red blood cells. It is also required for proper fluid and electrolyte balance, controlling potassium and sodium-based fluids while helping maintain proper intracellular levels of magnesium. Since it is a water-soluble vitamin, there is no place to store vitamin B-6 in the body over the long term. Instead, any excess vitamin B-6 gets excreted quickly via urine, within 60 to 90 minutes of absorption—and under stress, the body will become depleted faster than some diets can replenish. Pure Lab Vitamins’ Slow Release BioActive B-6 in 50 milligrams per capsule ensures a more gradual uptake of the vitamin—in its active form—for a safer way to maintain adequate levels of this nutrient throughout the day. PureLab’s Slow-Release Formulation helps maintain blood levels for 4–5 hours. Recommended Use: Helps in energy metabolism and tissue formation. Helps to prevent Vitamin B6 deficiency. Recommended Dose: Adults: 1 capsule 1-2 times per day with food. Adolescents 9–18 years: 1 capsule 1 time per day with food. Or as directed by a health care practitioner.
- RAIN FUNCTION: Vitamin B6 promotes the proper function and development of the brain and nervous system, by playing a major role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and GABA, which are important compounds for mood regulation, depression, pain, fatigue, and anxiety prevention
- MORNING SICKNESS: It’s called morning sickness, but that truly unpleasant side effect of pregnancy involving nausea and vomiting isn’t limited to just the morning. Studies suggest that taking vitamin B6 for morning sickness greatly improves nausea for many pregnant women
- HEALTHY BLOOD VESSELS: Vitamin B6 works with two other B vitamins, B12 and folic acid B9, to reduce levels of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a type of amino acid the body receives from protein-rich food sources, but elevated homocysteine levels can be a potential risk of inflammation and heart disease
- RELIEVE PMS SYMPTOMS: Vitamin B6 plays a major role in regard to our hormones. Thus, it doesn't come as a huge surprise that it has been used to treat symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, including breast pain, nausea, cramps, fatigue, and headaches
- SIDEROBLASTIC ANEMIA: Vitamin B6 is involved in the production of hemoglobin, a protein that supplies cells with oxygen. Lower hemoglobin levels is one of the causes of anemia, a condition characterized by low levels of red blood cells. Vitamin B6 can help diminish symptoms of this condition
