Vitamin B6 is an essential nutrient that supports numerous functions in your body. It’s needed to metabolize homocysteine, normalize mood, balance hormones, and help you sleep.
Vitamin B6 deficiency has been associated with problems involving the menstrual cycle, heart health, and mood.
Unfortunately, many people have trouble converting food sources of vitamin B6 into its active form, known as pyridoxal 5’-phosphate or P-5-P. These individuals may benefit from P-5-P dietary supplements.
Seeking Health’s P-5-P contains a potent 25 mg of vitamin B6 (1,471% Daily Value) in the active form of P-5-P (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate).
This high-strength vitamin B6 supplement is gluten-free and ideal for those who are deficient or require higher amounts. It can be a great boost to your daily multivitamin or B-complex supplement.
P-5-P (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate) is considered by many to be the best vitamin B6 form. Vitamin B6 (or pyridoxine) must have a phosphate group attached for it to bind to enzymes. P-5-P is considered an active coenzyme form of vitamin B6. It activates over 140 different enzymatic reactions in the body. Like the other B complex vitamins, you must obtain this water-soluble vitamin daily from food. This is because your body does not make it.
Vitamin B6 is required for healthy:
- Breakdown of amino acids, carbohydrates, and fats
- Energy production/energy metabolism
- Immune system function
- Brain function
- Central nervous system function
- Red blood cells and red blood cell function
- Methylation processes
- Many enzymatic reactions
P-5-P pairs well with magnesium to promote healthy female menstrual cycles, neurotransmitter function, and hormone metabolism prior to menstruation. It may also support stomach comfort and digestion due to occasional nausea or morning sickness.
It can be challenging to get enough vitamin B6 from foods alone. Seeking Health’s P-5-P delivers a high-quality form of vitamin B6 in a convenient capsule. For a complete B complex containing active forms of folate and vitamin B12, consider B Complex Plus.
Take 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by your healthcare provider.
