Vitamin B6 is a co-factor that helps activate over 100 different enzymes involved in hundreds of biochemical tasks in the body.
It is used to help metabolize amino acids (protein management) as well as lipids (fats) and nucleic acids.
As protein intake increases, so does the need for B6. This vitamin may help maintain healthy homocysteine levels. High levels of homocysteine have been linked to increased cardiovascular risk.
Vitamin B6 is important for the production of energy and for proper nervous system function.
Each tablet provides 50 mg of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) and comes in a base of wheat germ flour and is suitable for vegetarians.
