Vitamin B6 250 mg – 100 Vegetarian Capsules from Life Extension® is a dietary supplement that may support heart healthy living. This vegetarian formula contains vitamin B6 or pyridoxine that takes part in several body processes. It helps breakdown protein and urea and acts as a coenzyme to work in coordination with other enzymes.
Pyridoxine present in this supplement from Life Extension® is part of Pyridoxal-5- Phosphate (PLP). PLP is a coenzyme in many processes like the synthesis of neurotransmitters and is a cofactor in the process of amino acid breakdown. It could convert tryptophan into niacin (vitamin B3).
Studies reveal that pyridoxine also participates in lipid metabolism and in the synthesis of hemoglobin. Another benefit is that pyridoxine could keep homocysteine levels in check. Homocysteine is an amino acid that could lead to poor cardiovascular health.
Pyridoxine may be beneficial in breaking down homocysteine‚ thereby lowering its levels. Restore balance in your cardiovascular system with Vitamin B6 250 mg – 100 Vegetarian Capsules from Life Extension®.
