Bioactive, tissue-ready form of vitamin B6 that is more readily used by the body. Essential cofactor for synthesis of amino acids and numerous neurotransmitters (brain chemicals). Not derived from yeast. Pyridoxine, also known as vitamin B6, is necessary for the transformation and utilization of amino acids for many functions in the body, including energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the production of hemoglobin, intrinsic factor, and is a vital component in the formation of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells. But in order for pyridoxine to be used by the body it must first be converted to pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P5P), a process that takes place in the liver. Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency. Supplementing with Thorne Researchs Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate ensures you receive the most bioactive form of vitamin B6.
