Our Vitamin B6 supplement is in the form of Pyridoxal-Phosphate (P5P), a bioactive form of vitamin B6 that's efficiently utilised by the body for various functions.
Unlike other forms, P5P does not need to be activated by the liver, allowing for quicker absorption and effectiveness.
This water-soluble vitamin is naturally present in many foods. It is known for building and breaking down amino acids, a process crucial for protein synthesis and degradation, which are critical for physical health and recovery. Each tablet delivers a potent 100mg of Vitamin B6.

What are the benefits?
Brain and Hormone Balance
Reduces symptoms of migraines
Alleviates PMS symptoms
P5P is the active coenzyme form of vitamin B6 and plays a crucial role in a wide array of biological processes.
Its most important function involves serving as a cofactor for enzymatic reactions related to amino acid metabolism, which leads to protein synthesis and muscle repair.
Furthermore, P5P contributes to neurotransmitter synthesis, supporting brain function and mood regulation. It also plays a role in producing hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen in the red blood cells to the body's tissues. Another critical function of P5P is its role in hormonal regulation, which can help alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and support overall heart health.
