Health Benefits Of Vitamin B6

Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by our body in small quantities to function properly.  Vitamins are essential to help maintain our overall health and well-being. Vitamins are organic compounds that cannot be made by our body and must be obtained either via food and drinks consumption or supplements or both.


Vitamin B6 or Pyridoxine is a water soluble vitamin that is used to treat certain type of anemia. Anemia is the lack of red blood cells. This contributes to tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B6 is needed to help make the red blood cells that transport oxygen throughout your body and help you feel energised. Vitamin B6 helps with muscle repair and brain function. It converts proteins, fats and carbohydrates to glucose.


Good sources of  Vitamin B6 from foods are avocado, bananas, carrots, chickpeas, durian, eggs, jackfruit, lentils, prunes, salmon, spinach, sunflower seeds and sweet potato. Vitamin B6 supports healthy hair growth. It ensures that hair cells have access to the amino acids which are the building blocks of protein, needed to make hair proteins.

Vitamin B6 deficiency can cause inflammation of the skin and red scaly rash. It can also make hands and feet numb and feel prickling, like pins and needles. Cracks may form in the corners of the mouth and the tongue may become red and sore. This may also cause the person to be irritable and confused.


Shortfall in Vitamin B6 may contribute to anxiety and depression. This is because Vitamin B6 is involved in the making of several nuerotransmitters such as serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical that carries messages between nerve cells in the brain and thoughout your body. It plays a key role in body functions such as mood, digestion, sleep, wound healing, bone health, nausea and blood clotting.


Our bodies use B Vitamins to convert the food we consume into the energy we require to function. As we get older, our bodies do not absorb nutrients as well. We must remember that our bodies require sufficient levels of all vitamins and minerals daily. It is therefore not possible to store these for several days, weeks or months. Consuming meals that are rich in a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains will provide us with most  of the vitamins and minerals that we require. However due to various factors such as soil depletion, we now need to take supplements to supplement our meal intake.


As our body cannot store Vitamin B6 for long, you need to constantly replenish your supply through healthier eating or smart supplementation.


You need to be aware that not all supplements are created equal or of top quality which is why you need to connect with a clinic such as ours, as we have done and continue to test the quality of various supplements and only recommend the best as we only have one body and must give it the best. You must not waste money on nutritional supplements that are not highly bioavailable or contact nutrients in inappropriate amounts or ratios for your needs. When it comes to supplements and food intake, quality makes all the difference and we must never eat only because it is convenient or tastes good.


One of the trusted supplements suppliers we personally use and recommend is called Usana Health Sciences as they have been supplied top rated supplements and skincare for over 30 years. You may get access to their products via this link. Usana’s supplements have been independently rate by The Comparative Guide To Nutritional Supplements as the top Platinum Plus 5 star rating. It is the only supplier we know who creates supplements based on what our bodies require vs pricing based on what the majority are willing to pay and then choosing inferior quality ingredients accordingly.
