Complete Guide to Vitamin B6


Many of you may have heard of the Vitamin B, but did you know that there are many different types of vitamin B? Today we'll be talking about the Vitamin B6 in particular. I am sure what you're about to learn, you will find it pretty intriguing if you are hearing it for the first time. Without further ado, let us dive in. The vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is one of the most versatile B vitamins, yet the body only requires a relatively small amount. Vitamin B6 works closely with all the other vitamin Bs, especially niacin, folic acid, and Cobalamin and contributes to numerous functions in the body. The B6 vitamin converts amino acids into proteins, and it is also required for transforming stored sugar within the body into vital energy. Basically, vitamin B6 is essential for converting the proteins that are consumed into proteins that the body needs and converting the carbohydrates from the form that they are stored in the body to a form that can be used for extra energy.


Not to mention, the body requires several different proteins, and it is the B6 vitamin that ensures that the correct forms are available. For example, the B6 vitamin will create hemoglobin for carrying oxygen in the blood cells, hormones for regulating blood pressure, neurotransmitters and various enzymes.


The recommended daily allowance for the B6 vitamin is only around 2.0mg. However, this seemingly insignificant amount is used extremely efficiently within the body to produce over sixty different enzymes. The best sources of the vitamin B6 are high-protein foods such as eggs, fish, poultry, and meat, and it is also added to breakfast cereals and bread to ensure that everyone can consume their recommended daily allowance, even if they do not eat meat products. An additional amount of the vitamin may be beneficial for the heart and immune system. Vitamin B6 supplements are sometimes required by asthmatics and diabetics. Nonetheless, it is crucial to be aware that large doses of the B6 vitamin can be toxic, always remember that.


Also, vitamin B6 is found in many common foods, the majority of us receive sufficient amounts of the vitamin from their normal diet. Some groups may need to take a B6 vitamin supplement to ensure that they obtain the recommended daily allowance. For example, pregnant or breastfeeding women will need a slightly higher amount of the B6 vitamin to allow for the amount of the vitamin that the baby is absorbing. However, it is possible to obtain the extra B6 vitamin from an increased consumption of high-protein foods. Strict vegetarians or vegans, however, and children who do not eat animal products may need a B6 vitamin supplement as vegetables and fruits are poor sources of the B6 vitamin.
