  • Vitamin B6 helps regulate levels of homocysteine, the by-product of the demethylation of the amino acid methionine. Increased homocysteine levels are associated with a wide range of diseases such as anxiety, depression, heart attacks, blood clot formation, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Consumption of Vitamin B6 from the diet or from supplements may help reduce the risks from these health conditions by keeping homocysteine in non-toxic levels.
  • The liver uses Vitamin B6 to produce enzymes involved in fat and protein metabolism. It helps convert proteins to amino acids and fats to fatty acids so they can be used by the cells to produce energy. Through this, Vitamin B6 benefits weight control and energy levels.
  • A few studies found that cognitive decline can be due to low levels of Vitamin B6 from the diet. Having enough Vitamin B6 is linked with mental sharpness, good memory, and other cognitive functions. Ageing increases the need for Vitamin B6 to prevent age-related cognitive decline and provide memory support.
  • Pyridoxine provides blood cell support. Vitamin B6 is used to manufacture haemoglobin in the red blood cells for transport to all the cells in the body. It nourishes the cells and ensures that they function properly, like brain cells for nerve transmission, muscle cells for movements, and heart cells for pumping action. Pyridoxine also affects energy levels.
  • Vitamin B6 promotes healthy wrist functions in people with carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is due to straining of the wrists characterised by tingling sensation and pain in the wrist after repetitive movements.
