Improve your cardiovascular health and boost your immune system with Swanson Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine. By aiding the metabolisation of fats and proteins, Vitamin B6 can even give your energy levels a much needed shot in the arm.
First of all, let's clear up the issue of nomenclature. Vitamin B6 is one of eight B vitamins used by your body and it comes in several different forms itself - pyridoxine, pyridoxal and pyridoxamine. All of which, as you may have gathered, are very closely related chemical compounds.
Our body metabolises these compounds into pyridoxal phosphate - a coenzyme used by the blood, skin and central nervous system for biochemical reactions. So what's in a name? Very little really, except that in this instance we are talking about the most bioavailable form of Vitamin B6 to our bodies. A vitamin form that we need for the metabolism of fats, amino acids and carbohydrates.
B Vitamins, by their nature, are water soluble. This means that unfortunately when we get them from our diets (beef liver and other organ meats are a good source - as well as cereals), any excess is flushed straight out of our system into our faeces. The result is that when our diets are lacking, so is our body.
Swanson Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine is a helpful and high dose supply of Vitamin B6, meaning that you can guarantee a richer source of this critical nutrient. With each capsule delivering 100 mg of Pyridoxine, you'll never be left wanting.
So, we know that Swanson Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine can help with our metabolic rate, but what else does it do and how?
Well, our entire bodies are affected by the metabolic process because it is essentially what keeps us going. By improving that procedure, by improving our body's own ability to turn food into fuel, we help it to operate at every level.
In our brains, for example. Swanson Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine adds to the much needed supply of hormones required to create neurotransmitters such as serotonin and norephedrine, which are vital to controlling and stabilising our mood. It also contributes to the production of melatonin which we need to keep our body clock in check.
B6 even helps regulate the amount of homocysteine in our blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that may be associated with heart disease. Combine this with the way it helps us absorb Vitamin B12 and we have an incredibly effective cardiovascular aid.
