Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is a very active water-soluble vitamin. It exists in the forms of; pyridoxal, pyridoxol, pyridoxamine. These biologically active forms of the vitamin play a fundamental role in its ability to work as a coenzyme for amino acid (protein) synthesis. This particular coenzyme is critical in a variety of amino acid processes.

The coenzyme form of the Vitamin B6 is pyridoxal phosphate (PLP). PLP is responsible for the conversion of the amino acid –tryptophan- to the vitamin B2, or niacin; antibody, and hemoglobin molecule synthesis; and plays a key role in the regulation of certain enzymes in the Central Nervous System. This B-compound coenzyme may also prove critical in the formation of DNA and RNA, or the body's genetic material or genetic code.

Vitamin B6 is often times supplemented in conjunction with Vitamin B9, and B12, to control homocysteine levels in the blood.[1] This important amino acid has been connected to many chronic illnesses including the number one chronic disease and killer of adults in America, heart disease.
