What is Vitamin B6?
There are three forms of Vitamin B6, more commonly seen as being referred to as Pyridoxine, a water-soluble vitamin that was discovered in 1934 by György. György was a scientist who proved that the factor to cure a skin condition in rats was attributable to Vitamin B6.
The vitamin is naturally found in a wide array of foods, including pork, poultry, fish, bread and wholegrain cereals, eggs, peanuts and milk. Vitamin B6 also occurs in vegetables, such as sweet potato and spinach.
Benefits of Vitamin B6
The main role of Vitamin B6 is to contribute to normal cysteine and homocysteine (amino acids) synthesis, alongside normal protein, glycogen (a carbohydrate) and energy metabolism, allowing the body to use and store energy from these nutrients. The vitamin is also responsible for normal red blood cell formation which aids psychological functions and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Another important role of Vitamin B6 is its ability to aid the functioning of the nervous system as it is involved in the production of neurotransmitters, a chemical substance released within a nerve to produce certain muscle actions. Additionally, the vitamin is used to benefit the normal function of the immune system and the regulation of hormonal activity.
