Vitamin B6 - 100 tablets

What is Vitamin B6? What are it's benefits?

Vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, is one of 8 B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy.

Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock.

Your body needs B6 in order to absorb vitamin B12 and to make red blood cells and cells of the immune system.

Symptoms of serious deficiency include muscle weakness, nervousness, irritability, depression, difficulty concentrating, and short-term memory loss.

Heart Disease
It isn' t clear how vitamin B6 might affect heart disease. People who don't get enough B6 in their diet have a higher risk of heart disease. And B6 plays a role in lowering levels of homocysteine in the blood. High levels of homocysteine appear to be associated with heart disease.

Nausea and Vomiting during pregnancy (morning sickness)
Several studies, including one large double-blind, placebo-controlled study, found that a daily dose of 30 mg of B6 may help reduce morning sickness. If you are pregnant, be sure to ask your doctor before taking any supplements, including vitamin B6.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration
One large study found that women who took 500 mg of vitamin B6 daily along with 1,000 mcg of cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) and 2,500 mcg of folic acid reduced their risk of developing AMD, an eye disease that can cause loss of vision.

Depression

Vitamin B6 helps your body make serotonin, a chemical that influences mood. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, and some antidepressant medications work by raising levels of serotonin.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Some early studies suggested that B6 might help reduce inflammation and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Low levels of vitamin B6 have been associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Some studies also suggest that people with RA may need more vitamin B6 than healthy people because chronic inflammation may lower B6 levels.

Tardive Dyskinesia

A few small studies have found that vitamin B6 may improve symptoms of tardive dyskinesia. Tardive dyskinesia is a side effect of some antipsychotic drugs that are taken for a long while, and involves involuntary movement of muscles, such as in the tongue, lips, face and jaw, arms, legs, fingers or toes.
