NOW Foods P-5-P

P-5-P or Pyridoxal-phospate is the active form of Vitamin B6. Also known as Pyridoxine, Vitamin B6 is an enzyme catalyst essential for neurotransmitter functions, energy metabolism, and many other body processes. P5P allows Vitamin B6 to be readily available for this purpose, thereby eliminating the need for the liver to convert it.

  • P5P can be useful in the production of health energy levels through its action on fat and protein metabolism. Like most of the Vitamin B complex vitamins, Pyridoxine aids in the conversion of protein to amino acids and fats to fatty acids that are being used to manufacture energy. Adding Vitamin B6 in its bioavailable form in the diet can boost energy levels to support daily activities, bodybuilding, exercise, and sports performance.
  • Now Foods P5P supply the brain with additional raw materials for healthy production of neurotransmitters in the brain. Pyridoxine is needed to manufacture the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine which are being used by the brain cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin and norepinephrine influences mood and thus, healthy levels of these brain chemicals may aid in the management of depression. Pyridoxal-phosphate also influences positive levels of melatonin, the hormone responsible for regulating the body clock.
  • Vitamin B6 may help reduce the risk for heart diseases. It appears that pyridoxine together with Vitamin B3 and B9 helps reduce the production of homocysteine, a substance that damages the blood vessel strength and flexibility. High levels of homocysteine are associated with hypertension, atherosclerosis, and possibly heart attack.
  • Pyridoxine provides blood cell support. It aid in manufacturing haemoglobin, the nutrient that supports production and transport of oxygen in the red blood cells. Through this, P5P directly affects energy levels and the normal functioning of vital organs. Additionally, Vitamin B6 is also needed for the absorption of Vitamin B12.

Now Foods P-5-P contains the bioavailable form of Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine. Also known as Pyridoxal-phosphate, this enzyme catalyst is the form that can be readily used by the body for energy production, manufacturing of neurotransmitters, brain development, protein and fat metabolism, cardiovascular disease prevention, collagen formation, energy production, muscle growth and repair, and more body processes. When taken as Vitamin B6, it needs the liver to convert it to Pyridoxal-phosphate before it gets absorbed and utilised by the cells and tissues.

The most abundant food sources of Vitamin B6 include whole grains, bran flakes, beef, chicken, ham, and garbanzo beans. It is also found in significant amounts in bananas, watermelon, black beans, potato, halibut, herring, and dark meat.
