Vitamin B6 is involved in the following metabolic processes:
*Amino acid, glucose and lipid metabolism *Neurotransmitter synthesis *Histamine synthesis *Hemoglobin synthesis and function *Gene expression
Lack of B6 causes: Dermatitis, sleep difficulties, confusion, neurological symptoms, neuropathy, trouble focusing, etc. Can alleviate hyperactivity, ADHD, help with Parkinson’s Disease, alcoholic hangovers and morning sickness
Vitamin B-6, also known as pyridoxine, functions in the brain to help form myelin and synthesizes the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine. Vitamin B-6 is found in vegetables, legumes, meat, dairy, eggs, fish and cereal grains. Because of its importance in proper brain function, pyridoxine deficiency or insufficiency has been implicated in many disorders involving the brain, including ADHD.
Vitamin B6 calms the nervous system, helps the body to produce neurotransmitters and so balance the neurotransmitter systems transmitting messages through it. No wonder then that numerous studies have connected this vitamin with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
Vitamin B6 intake is frequently low & this nutrient is commonly deficient in pregnant women, children, the elderly & the ill. It is also depleted by birth control pills, alcohol, tobacco, some antibiotics, blood pressure medication, and numerous other prescription drugs
Without adequate vitamin B6, the amino acids in dietary protein are not of much use to you. Vitamin B6 literally controls the amino acid absorption, metabolism & transformations in your body. It also directly participates in carbohydrate & fat metabolism, as well as the formation of red blood cells & antibodies. It is necessary for the absorption & utilization of certain minerals & is required for the proper functioning of over sixty enzyme systems in our bodies.
Many B6 supplements are the inactive pyridoxine HCL form. In some cases, supplementation of the pyridoxine HCL form singularly and in doses as low as 200 mg daily over 3 years caused a reversible numbness & tingling of the extremities. This problem was thought to be secondary to the liver’s inability to convert the pyridoxine HCL to the pyridoxal-5-phosphate form (which requires vitamin B2, magnesium & a well functioning liver.) Using P-5-P avoids this problem.*
Supplementation increases the production of serotonin, norepinephrine, GABA, dopamine, & other neurotransmitters.* Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate:
Is essential to any natural anti-depressant program
Helps to relieve premenstrual symptoms.*

May be protective against some forms of cancer.*
May be effective with some forms of fertility.* Has anti-convulsant effects.*
