Pure Nutrition B6 is a potent single-ingredient formula containing bioavailable vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCl) for enhancing nervous system function, brain health, energy production, immunity, and a variety of other biochemical processes.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin found in a variety of foods, particularly vegetables and nuts. Typical Western diets are low in vitamin B6; supplementing with Pure Nutrition B6 can help ensure you don’t avoid deficiency of B6.
Recent decades have brought an abundance of medical research focusing on the therapeutic effects of B vitamin supplementation. Findings thus far pinpoint just how vital these vitamins are for health and longevity, noting that deficiencies are correlated with increased risk for a variety of health complications. Vitamin B6 deficiency is most common in alcoholics and malnourished individuals, which can lead to depression, insomnia, anemia, hypertension, neuropathy, and a variety of other complications.1 2
There are over 120 known vital reactions in the human body in which pyridoxal phosphate - the active form of vitamin B6 – is necessary for. For example, your body requires vitamin B6 to help metabolize the amino acid L-tryptophan into 5-HTP, which then goes on to help create serotonin.
Moreover, your body uses vitamin B6 to convert levodopa (L-DOPA) into dopamine, as well as for converting glutamate (an excitatory neurotransmitter) into gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Therefore, vitamin B6 plays an integral role in cognitive function, mood, and overall nervous system balance.
As such, cognitive decline and other ramifications are more likely to occur in individuals who are deficient in vitamin B6.
Vitamin B6 deficiency is highly prevalent in those who regularly consume alcohol. Vitamin B6 deficiency is a serious medical condition and needs to be addressed in a timely fashion or else you may experience mood disorders, anemia, sleep disruption, neuropathy, hypertension, or other deleterious health ramifications.
Vitamin B6 plays pivotal roles in supporting healthy nervous system function, brain function, immunity, and a variety of other essential physiological processes. It is especially important to consider taking Pure Nutrition B6 if you regularly consume alcoholic beverages or have diabetes, as these circumstances are well-known to deplete vitamin B6 levels in the body.
In fact, recent evidence contends that supplementing with vitamin B6 is an effective measure for reducing the risk of neurodegenerative conditions and cognitive decline.3
