Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P) is the active form of Vitamin B6. Unlike other forms it does not require conversion by the liver. Chelated magnesium promotes P-5-P metabolism.
Because of its role as a co-factor (or assistant) to over a 100 different enzymes, vitamin B6 levels have an impact on many body systems that would seem unrelated at first glance. P-5-P with Magnesium contains this crucial vitamin in its most absorbable form - pyridoxal-5-phosphate, or P-5-P. This formula is ideal for healthy joint support, supporting mood and relieving stress, promoting healthy fluid balance, and more. The addition of magnesium promotes optimal P-5-P absorption and aids in cellular energy production and support of many health systems.
Low levels of vitamin B6, especially the active coenzyme form, pyridoxal-5-phosphate found naturally in the blood, may be a factor in serotonin production and other reactions in the body that determine mood and nervous system function. Randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical studies have also shown that vitamin B6 can help relieve stress associated with premenstrual syndrome. It is also considered a strong supporter of healthy muscle function, especially for individuals working in tasks requiring repetitive movement.*
Magnesium is involved with the production of cellular energy throughout the body. It supports thyroid health and hormone production, bone metabolism, and healthy blood pressure levels already within normal limits.* Magnesium in its chelated form is highly absorbable and aids in the absorption of pyridoxal-5-phosphate.
The term "vitamin B6" is actually a generic name for three related forms of the vitamin: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoximine. The form used in P-5-P/Mag™ is the pyridoxal-5-phosphate form, which is involved in much of the body's chemical reactions.
