B6 is a common term for pyridoxine, pyridoxal and pyridoxamine. Vitamin B6 has many important functions in our body, but one of the most important is its support in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Vitamin B6 is needed for:
to ensure normal amino acid metabolism (including cleavage and utilization of proteins),
to ensure the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats,
formation of many bioactive compounds (eg serotonin) in the body,
for the process of erythrocyte depletion
for the normal functioning of the central nervous system,
For complete absorption of vitamin B12 and magnesium,
for the production of hydrochloric acid
As vitamin B6 is involved in protein metabolism, its need increases with increasing protein intake, eg in athletes. Dietary vitamin B6 deficiency is rare and is usually combined with a deficiency of other B vitamins. Clinical symptoms in infants and children include epileptic seizures, weight loss, gastrointestinal problems, and microcytic anemia.
