Douglas labs Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is a biologically active form of vitamin B6 that provides 50mg of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate per each capsule.
Pyridoxal-5-phosphates actions mainly involve the metabolism of amino acids and other nitrogen compounds. In the liver, pyridoxal-5-phosphate is essential for supporting glucose production from amino acids through its role as a coenzyme for the transaminase enzymes.
Pyridoxal-5-phosphate is also needed in the liver and muscles to access stored glycogen for glucose production, and to synthesize niacin from the amino acid tryptophan. In red blood cells, pyridoxal-5-phosphate is needed for hemoglobin synthesis, and regulation of oxygen affinity.
Moreover, cell receptivity to steroid hormones is influenced by pyridoxal-5-phosphate. In the nervous system, pyridoxal-5-phosphate is needed for supporting the synthesis of several neurotransmitters, including serotonin (from tryptophan), taurine, dopamine, norepinephrine, histamine, and gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Many experimental and clinical observations support the fact that dietary vitamin B6 is required to maintain normal nervous system function.
Along with vitamin B12 and folic acid, pyridoxal-5-phosphate is involved in single carbon metabolism, and is necessary support for maintaining normal plasma homocysteine levels.
Also, due to its involvement in single carbon metabolism, pyridoxal-5-phosphate provides support for maintaining normal immune function.
