Vitamin B6 comprises three bioactive molecules—pyridoxol, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine—whose basic structure is a substituted pyridine ring. These play a fundamental role in the metabolism of many amino acids. The active form of pyridoxal phosphate is a coenzyme which is required for the function of over 60 enzymes.
Vitamin B6 contributes to:
- Normal cysteine synthesis, normal homocysteine metabolism, normal protein and glycogen metabolism, and normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Normal nervous system function
- Normal red blood cell formation
- Normal immune system function
Vitamin B6 is a natural component of the ingredients in ManaPowder and ManaDrink. We also add it in the form of pyridoxine hydrochloride.
