The major metabolic function of vitamin
B6 is as a coenzyme. It plays an important role in protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism. It must be present for the production of antibodies and red blood cells. Its major functions are the production of epinephrine, serotonin, and the conversion of tryptophan (essential amino acid
) to niacin which is necessary for the synthesis and functions of DNA and RNA, the breakdown of glycogen for energy from the liver and muscles, and the formation of the vitamin nicotinic acid. Vitamin
B6 is usually excreted in the urine 8 hours after digestion, and fasting and reducing diets can deplete the bodies B6 supply. Pyridoxine helps reduce prolactin levels (prolactin is linked to production of DHT) thus helping reduce BPH. Reduces levels of homocysteine (amino acid that encourages arterial plaque buildup). B6 is required to make serotonin from l-tryptophan, and increases serotonin functioning. Vitamin B6 helps maintain the balance of sodium and potassium, and regulate the body fluids and promote normal functions of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. It is required for the proper absorption of vitamin B12, and production of HCl. B6 is required to metabolize magnesium and zinc.
