Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin. The body can neither synthesize it nor store it. It is therefore an essential vitamin which must be provided via our diet.
Like many group B vitamins, it plays an important role in energy production and in the protein synthesis. It also plays an essential role in the formation of several neurotransmitters involved in mood (serotonin, melatonin and dopamine) and improves the action of magnesium to fight against stress, which remains its most known action. Its consumption as a dietary supplement may prove to be a precious well-being ally.
It is present in an interesting quantity in meats, organ meats, fatty fish, brewer's yeast, bananas, cabbage, potatoes, spinach, eggplant, leeks, zucchini, legumes, sprouts wheat, etc.
Note: The form from animal sources is better assimilated by the body than vegetable sources which are very poorly assimilated and could even hinder the assimilation of other forms of vitamin B6.
Also called "Muscle vitamin", it's in 1934 that the Hungarian scientist Paul Gyorgy, while looking for a cure for a skin condition by testing rats, isolated vitamin B6. It will then take 5 years for it to be synthesized and for its scientific name pyridoxine be attributed to him!
SUPPLEMENT & CONTRAINDICATION:
- excess vitamin B6 are rare, this vitamin being very little stored by the body. The deficiencies are also rare but, in some cases (athletes, pregnant women, the elderly, vegans, etc.), the needs may be greatly increased.
