Vitamin B6 (Activated P-5-P 25mg) 100 vegetarian capsules

P-5-P vitamin B6 provides 25 mg of vitamin B6 in the active coenzyme form, pyridoxal 5′-phosphate, in each easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule. Vitamin B6 as P-5-P is important as a coenzyme for the normal metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids.* It is also involved in healthy cognitive development, immune health and homocysteine conversion.*

P-5-P or pyridoxal 5′-phosphate is known as the “active” or “coenzyme” form of vitamin B6. This is because the P-5-P form of B6 is directly used in B6-dependent enzyme functions within the body. In fact, vitamin B6 and P-5-P are needed for more than 100 enzymes – mostly related to protein metabolism.In a typical diet, B6 can be found in potatoes, poultry, fortified grains and cereals, salmon and avocados. However, many plant sources contain a less bioavailable form of B6 – pyridoxine glucoside. This form is more difficult to absorb and utilize than the forms found in meat, fish, poultry or supplements. Especially for those who eat a mostly vegan or vegetarian diet, B6 supplementation can be very important.
