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. It is an important component of the coenzyme PLP.

Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is an important component of the coenzyme PLP, which metabolizes amino acids.215-218 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.219

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.220-223

Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6):

  • Assists in equalizing sodium and potassium1
  • Promotes creation of hemoglobin4
  • Supports cardiovascular health by helping to decrease homocysteine formation1
  • May support hormone changes in women2
  • Supports the immune system by helping to make antibodies4
  • Is required for the manufacture of serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine1
  • May help with depression and anxiety1
  • Helps maintain healthy glucose ranges4

Low levels of vitamin B6 may cause anemia, nerve damage, seizures, skin problems, and mouth sores. Alcohol consumption may lead to a deficiency.3
