Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (Vit. B6) 20 mg. caps 100 caps $8.95

Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxal-5'-Phosphate)
Vitamin B-6 also called Pyridoxine, refers to a family of water soluble substances - including pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine, that are closely related in form and function. Vitamin B6 is a water soluble nutrient that cannot be stored in the body, but must be obtained daily from either dietary sources or supplements.

Vitamin B6 is an important nutrient that supports more vital bodily functions than any other vitamin. This is due to its role as a coenzyme involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Vitamin B6 is also responsible for the manufacture of hormones, red blood cells, neurotransmitters, enzymes and prostaglandins. Vitamin B6 is required for the production of serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter that controls our moods, appetite, sleep patterns, and sensitivity to pain. A deficiency of vitamin B6 can quickly lead to insomnia and a profound malfunctioning of the central nervous system.

Among its many benefits, vitamin B6 is recognized for helping to maintain healthy immune system functions, for protecting the heart from cholesterol deposits, and for preventing kidney stone formation. B6 is also effective in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, night leg cramps, allergies, asthma and arthritis.

Each enterically coated tablet contains 20 mg. of Pyridoxal-5'-Phosphate (vitamin B-5 co-enzyme). As a dietary supplement, one to three talets daily or as directed by a health care professional. From Ecological Formulas. Contains no yeast, starch, beef, milk, wheat or other common food allergens.
