Vitamin B6 - Pyridoxine

 

Vitamin B6 is Good For

 

avocadoVitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, is one of eight water-soluble B vitamins. The B vitamins help the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose (sugar), which is "burned" to produce energy. These vitamins, often referred to as the B complex, are also essential in the metabolism of fats and protein. B complex vitamins also play an important role in maintaining muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract and promoting the health of the nervous system, skin, hair, eyes, mouth, and liver. Plus, vitamin B6 is essential for normal brain development and function, participating in the process of making important brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.

 

Sources of Vitamin B6

 

Dietary sources of Vitamin B6 are chicken, turkey, tuna, salmon, shrimp, beef liver, lentils, soybeans, nuts, avocados, bananas, carrots, brown rice, bran, sunflower seeds, wheat germ and whole grain flour.

 

Vitamin B6 Deficiencies

 

Deficiency in Vitamin B6 may lead to depression, headaches, difficulty concentrating, short term memory loss, irritability, cracking lips & tongue, anaemia, numbness in hands and feet.
