B-6, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 100 mg of Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine) in each tablet.
Pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and other nitrogen compounds. In the liver, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) is essential for glucose production from amino acids via its role as co-enzyme for the transaminase enzymes. Pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) is also needed by the liver and muscles to make stored glycogen available for glucose production, and to synthesize niacin from the amino acid tryptophan.
In red blood cells, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) is needed for hemoglobin synthesis, and regulates its oxygen affinity. Additionally, steroid hormone action is modulated by pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) at the receptor level.
In the nervous system, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) is needed to synthesize several neurotransmitters, such as serotonin (from tryptophan), taurine, dopamine, norepinephrine, histamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Many experimental and clinical observations support the fact that adequate amounts of dietary vitamin B-6 are required to maintain normal nervous system function.
B-6 tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to increase their intake of vitamin B-6.PRODUCT DATA SHEET (READ for SCIENCE): 7943_B-6_PDS.pdf
