AOR P-5-P - 50mg
Pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (P-5-P) is the bio-active form of vitamin B6. P-5-P is a catalyst for at least 113 known essential enzymatic reactions in the body. Studies show that for people with compromised liver function, P-5-P is 3 times more likely to be absorbed than conventional B6. In addition, the enzymes that convert conventional pyridoxine to P-5-P have been found to be impaired in those with autism. Low P-5-P levels have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, and B6 is known to reduce homocysteine levels, a toxic protein linked to heart disease. P-5-P is required for the production of serotonin and GABA, neurotransmitters that control mood, pain perception and nervousness.
