Info: 100 Capsules
Vitamin B-6 or pyridoxine is one of the most vital vitamins in the body, being involved in over 60 enzymatic reactions to metabolize the amino acids and essential fatty acids which build protein and help maintain all the body structures and tissues and nearly all bodily functions. It's also needed to synthesis the important neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine and to form myelin (the coating which insulates and protects nerves).
Vitamin B-6 is found in fresh vegetables, but we don't always get enough of those, and if we're deficient in it, we can develop skin or mucous membrane symptoms such as seborrheic dermatitis, acne, tiny sores and cracks in and around the mouth, or an inflamed tongue; or a variety of nervous system problems such as confusion, dizziness, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, depression, or tingling in the hands and feet. To ensure you're getting enough, NOW offers a convenient one a day formula that's been screened for potency and purity.
