Pure Encapsulations P5P 50 (activated vitamin B6), 180 count
Pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (P5P) is the active metabolite of pyridoxine and is the predominant form of plasma B6. P5P is required for proper absorption of B12 and magnesium, and for the production of gastric HCl. It is an important coenzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and the elongation of essential fatty acids, and is required for the production of antibodies and red blood cells. P5P facilitates the release of glycogen (used in energy production) from the liver and muscles. In addition, P5P helps maintain the balance of sodium and potassium, which regulates body fluids and promotes the healthy functioning of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems.
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. Individuals experiencing numbness or tingling with vitamin B6 supplementation should notify their health professional, as vitamin B6 may adversely affect sensory nerves in some individuals (though this effect is more likely to occur at doses greater than 200 mg). Consult your physician for more information.
