Vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, is
a water-soluble nutrient that is part of the B vitamin family. B vitamins help
support adrenal function, help calm and maintain a healthy nervous system, and
are necessary for key metabolic processes. Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme in the
breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Vitamin B-6 is one of the more popular
members of the B-vitamin family and is found in fresh vegetables.
Researchers found that people with the
lowest levels of vitamin B6 in their blood had the highest levels of chronic
inflammation, based on a wide variety of indicators. Those with the most
vitamin B6 circulating in the bloodstream were also the least likely to have
indicators of inflammation.
Vitamin B6 is vital to more than 100
enzyme processes in the body, mostly those involving the metabolism of protein.
Vitamin B6 helps in the production of
neurotransmitters, the chemicals that allow brain and nerve cells to
communicate with one another, ensuring that metabolic processes such as fat and
protein metabolism run smoothly, and is important for immune system function in
older individuals. It can also help address a number of conditions, including
nerve compression injuries (like carpal tunnel syndrome), premenstrual syndrome
(PMS), and some cases of depression and arthritis. It is often used to treat
high homocysteine levels along with folic acid and vitamin B12. Memory loss,
diabetes, asthma attacks, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
kidney stones, lung cancer, acne and atherosclerosis may also be treated and
improved via vitamin B6 supplementation.
