Bioactive B6 

Slow Release 

50mg

A biologically-active vitamin B6 in a sustained-release formulation

Under stress, the body becomes depleted of vitamin B6 faster than some diets replenish.

What kind of work does vitamin B6 do for the body? It’s involved in synthesis of proteins and the neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin, production of antibodies of the immune system, as well as in the manufacture of oxygen-hungry muscle cells and oxygen-carrying red blood cells. It’s also required for proper fluid and electrolyte balance, controlling levels of potassium and sodium-based fluids while helping maintain proper intracellular levels of magnesium. It’s vital to methylation, a biochemical process that must occur in every cell of the body, 24/7 for health maintenance---and much more.

Vitamin B6 deficiency is not just associated with microcytic anemia and skin conditions like dermatitis and cheilosis, but also with reduced immune function. Low levels negatively affect the brain and nervous system, and are linked to reduced REM sleep, depression, and EEG abnormalities.

While it’s true a varied diet can contain a decent amount of vitamin B6, a significant amount of the vitamin B6 present in fruits, vegetables and grains are in a form that isn’t as bioavailable as those found in meats.

Supplementation can be used to reduce risk of vitamin B6 deficiency and help manage several different health conditions, but Vitamin B6 supplements that contain B6 in its inactivated form (pyridoxine hydrochloride) are rapidly excreted by the body within 60 to 90 minutes of absorption.

For this reason, Pure Lab’s Slow Release BioActive B-6 capsules are designed to release vitamin B6 gradually into the GI tract where it can be absorbed into the bloodstream, sustaining blood levels for up to 6 hours before replenishment is needed.
