The vitamin B6 group comprises three natural forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxamine and pyridoxal, which, during metabolism, are converted to the enzymatically active form pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P).Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (here described as “vitamin B6”) is a cofactor in more than a hundred enzyme reactions. One of its functions is to perform transamination, a key step in both breaking down and producing amino acids in the body. Vitamin B6 is also necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, as well as hemoglobin in red blood cells. And vitamin B6 plays a central role in fat metabolism.
Vitamin B6 deficiency symptoms:
– Disturbance of protein biosynthesis
– Muscular weakness,loss of muscle control
– Skin disorders(dermatitis,pigment abnormality)
– Nervous disorders(irritability,depression,palsy)
Vitamin B6 deficiency can be considered as a risk factor for myocardial infarction, peripheral vascular diseases and atherosclerosis,especially in connection with the regulation of homocysteine metabolism.
Vitamin B6 deficiency can result from:
– Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases(colitis ulcerosa, Crohn’s disease, gluten sensitivity)
– Alcohol abuse
– Pregnancy and lactation
