Ingredient Overview: Vitamin B6 Posted on April 17, 2016 by , 0 comments

Our weekly blog series continues, highlighting the important and unique synergistic ingredients found in AltoViva for Heart Health. This week, Vitamin B6.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), is one of eight B-complex vitamins that are responsible for converting carbohydrates into glucose that the body can use for fuel. These vitamins are also responsible for the metabolism of fats and proteins. They are necessary for the support and function of the nervous system and dermal, vision, and liver health.

Because B-complex vitamins are water-soluble, the body cannot store them. This means that B vitamins must come from food or supplements. Vitamin B6 is found in meats, dairy, nuts, beans, and organ meat.

As we age, the need for B-complex vitamins increases. An association between healthy B6 levels and appropriate homocysteine levels has been seen in both human and animal models. The maintenance of healthy homocysteine levels is associated with cardiovascular health. As with LDL and HDL levels, this is not a sole indicator of heart health, but one of many markers that ought to be appropriately maintained.*

B6 is also known for its ability to support healthy nerve function. It assists in the production of key neurotransmitters, and this effect on nerve function may ultimately support the heart’s natural ability to relax between beats.*
