Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine and related compounds) is essential in protein metabolism, the synthesis of neurotransmitters,... Vitamin B 6 is active in its coenzyme form of pyridoxol phosphate and functions in the formation and breakdown of amino acid s, and hence indirectly of protein, and in the regulation of blood glucose levels. (PubMed), 67. CoQ10 levels have also been found to be lower in people with certain conditions, such as heart disease.CoQ10 is found in meat, fish and whole grains. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. Pyridoxine is a hydroxymethylpyridine with hydroxymethyl groups at positions 4 and 5, a hydroxy group at position 3 and a methyl group at position 2. J Nutr. 2009;120(8):649-655. Am J Obstet Gynecol.

In most cases, including foods in the diet that are rich in vitamin B6 should supply enough to meet the current RDA. In a case-control study, which included 184 participants with CAD and 516 healthy controls, low plasma PLP levels (<30 nanomoles/liter) were associated with a near doubling of CAD risk when compared to higher PLP levels (≥30 nanomoles/liter) (23). Urol Res. Effect of vitamin B6 on the side effects of a low-dose combined oral contraceptive. Because adverse effects have only been documented from vitamin B6 supplements and never from food sources, safety concerning only the supplemental form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is discussed. Pyridoxal 5?-phosphate (P5P) is the active coenzyme form of Vitamin B6 which can be directly utilized by the body without conversion. CAD is characterized by the abnormal stenosis (narrowing) of coronary arteries (generally due to atherosclerosis), which can result in a potentially fatal myocardial infarction (heart attack).

In fact, inflammation is involved in the early steps of atherosclerosis in which lipids deposit in plaques (known as atheromas) within arterial walls and increase the risk of CAD (45). 90. Koren G, Clark S, Hankins GD, et al. Folate and vitamin B6 from diet and supplements in relation to risk of coronary heart disease among women. 2008;87(5):1446-1454. The authors reported an increased rate of cystathionine synthesis with vitamin B6 restriction, suggesting that homocysteine catabolism in the transsulfuration may be maintained or enhanced in response to a marginal reduction in PLP availability. 1991;78(1):33-36.

The vitamin is not synthesized in animal cells. One pathway relies on the vitamin B12-dependent methionine synthase and the methyl donor, 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (a folate derivative), to convert homocysteine back to methionine. Clinical use of cyclooxygenase inhibitors impairs vitamin B-6 metabolism. In animal tissues, pyridoxine is converted into pyridoxal phosphate, an active coenzyme form of vitamin B 6 A deficiency of pyridoxine in the diet gives rise to dermatitis and convulsions. [Epub ahead of print] (PubMed), 48. Ulvik A, Midttun O, Pedersen ER, Eussen SJ, Nygard O, Ueland PM. Vitamin B6 in a mixed diet has been found to be approximately 75% bioavailable (14). Talbott MC, Miller LT, Kerkvliet NI. Moreover, the inverse correlation between PLP levels and inflammatory scores remained significant regardless of vitamin B6 intakes, questioning again the nature of this relationship. The other reaction is catalyzed by betaine homocysteine methyltransferase, which uses betaine as a source of methyl groups for the formation of methionine from homocysteine.

Evidence for increased catabolism of vitamin B-6 during systemic inflammation. High homocysteine levels are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke as it may promote the formation of blood clots and excess free radical cells, and may impair normal blood vessel function. Lancet Neurol. Nat Chem Biol. The Enzyme commission has catalogued more than 140 PLP-dependent activities, corresponding to ~4% of all classified activities. 1999;81(1):7-20 (PubMed), 91. Interestingly, a recent analysis of data collected in the WENBIT study demonstrated that systemic inflammation was associated with an increased degradation of pyridoxal (PL) to 4-pyridoxic acid (PA), supporting the use of the ratio PA:(PL+PLP) as a marker of both vitamin B6 status and systemic inflammation (47). Markers of immune activation and inflammation have been associated with hyperhomocysteinemia (homocysteine levels >15 micromoles/liter) in individuals with coronary artery disease (CAD) (44). In conclusion, the present study indicates that the neuropathy observed after taking a relatively high dose of vitamin B6 supplements is due to pyridoxine. (PubMed), 60. There is limited evidence suggesting that supplemental vitamin B6 may have therapeutic efficacy in the management of depression. It is found in the body in three primary forms: pyridoxine (the common name given mainly to the alcohol form, or pyridoxol); pyridoxal (the aldehyde); and pyridoxamine (the amine). More recently, NVP symptoms were evaluated using Pregnancy Unique Quantification of Emesis (PUQE) scores in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in 256 pregnant women (7-14 weeks' gestation) suffering from NVP (78). 1997;55(4):245-248.

Vitamin B-6 intake is inversely related to, and the requirement is affected by, inflammation status. (PubMed), 28. . 2003;112(1-2):37-41. A lack of adequate vitamin B6, along with vitamin B12 and folic acid, can increase homocysteine levels. Yet, despite values well above the current RDA, total vitamin B6 intakes (combining food and supplements) below 2 mg/day appear to be associated with relatively high proportions of low vitamin B6 status in all age groups (see Supplements). (PubMed), 17. Thus, while dietary vitamin B6 restriction impairs NAD synthesis from tryptophan, adequate PLP levels help maintain NAD formation from tryptophan (10). Curr Opin Immunol. PLP bioavailability may also be reduced by methylxanthines, such as theophylline used to treat certain respiratory conditions (7). Coexistence of symptoms of depression and low vitamin B6 status (plasma PLP level ≤20 nanomoles/liter) has been reported in a few cross-sectional studies (57, 58).

The Linus Pauling Institute supports the RDA for vitamin B6. Am J Clin Nutr. Lenze EJ, Munin MC, Skidmore ER, et al. Plasma vitamin B(6) and risk of myocardial infarction in women. Abnormal tryptophan load tests in women taking high-dose oral contraceptives (OCs) in the 1960s and 1970s suggested that these women were vitamin B6 deficient, which led to the prescription of high doses of vitamin B6 (100-150 mg/day) to women taking OCs. Loland KH, Bleie O, Blix AJ, et al. Therefore the American Heart Association does not advocate for the use of B vitamin supplements for reducing cardiovascular disease risk. 2013;143(9):1509-1519.

It should be noted that NVP usually resolves without any treatment, making it difficult to perform well-controlled trials. JAMA. Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs for several functions. Another more recent review of 13 randomized controlled studies also emphasized the need for conclusive evidence before recommendations can be made (80). 2013;32(42):4995-5004. Very few randomized, placebo-controlled trials investigating the nature of the association between B vitamins and cancer risk have focused on vitamin B6. Chang HY, Tang FY, Chen DY, et al. Specifically, plasma PLP levels were 24% lower in individuals in the highest versus lowest tertile of inflammatory score. Vitamin B6 has long been documented as a remedy to help relieve pregnancy-related nausea and its most severe form, hyperemesis gravidarum, which sometimes necessitates hospitalization due to severe dehydration. Moreover, more women supplemented with pyridoxine-doxylamine (48.9%) than placebo-treated (32.8%) asked to continue their treatment at the end of the 15-day trial. Adequate blood levels of B6 may be associated with lower risk of cancers, compared to low blood levels. (PubMed), 82. RDA: The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for men ages 14-50 years is 1.3 mg daily; 51+ years, 1.7 mg. Biochemical and clinical response to therapy with pyridoxine. Professor, Food Science and Human Nutrition Finally, although high doses of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) have demonstrated no benefit in preventing the risk of side effects from OCs (94), the use of vitamin B6 supplements may be warranted in current and past OC users. Oregon State University, Updated in February 2002 by: 2013;48(2):294-301. More recent research has confirmed that low plasma PLP status is a risk factor for CAD. There were no differences in cardiac events or cardiac deaths in the vitamin B6 groups compared with the placebo group. On the one hand, since inflammation may impair vitamin B6 metabolism, low serum PLP levels may well be caused by processes related to aging rather than by malnutrition. 2010;303(11):1077-1083.

Lee JE, Li H, Giovannucci E, et al. Picker JD, Levy HL. Vitamin B6 may indirectly help with brain function by lowering levels of homocysteine, as high levels of this protein in the body have been linked with a higher incidence of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and cognitive decline. A group of more than 85,000 women without a prior history of kidney stones were followed over 14 years, and those who consumed 40 mg or more of vitamin B6 daily had only two-thirds the risk of developing kidney stones compared with those who consumed 3 mg or less (66). (PubMed), 57. In the NHANES 2003-2004 analysis, significantly more current and past users of oral contraceptives (OCs) among menstruating women had low plasma PLP levels compared to women who have never used OCs, suggesting that the estrogen content of OCs may interfere with vitamin B6 metabolism (see Side effects of oral contraceptives) (88). Of the three supplemental B vitamins, folic acid appears to be the main determinant in the regulation of fasting homocysteine levels when there is no coexisting deficiency of vitamin B12 or vitamin B6 (31). Ishihara J, Iso H, Inoue M, et al. This pathway is known to be activated during pro-inflammatory immune responses and plays a critical role in immune tolerance of the fetus during pregnancy (15). Cardiol Rev. This product is Pyrodoxal-5-phosphate, the active form which doesnt have any of those issues, and so in my opinion seems to be the better way to supplement vitamin b6 and why I chose it and now avoid pyridoxine as much as I can.

Keniston RC, Nathan PA, Leklem JE, Lockwood RS. PLP is also involved in neurotransmitter, myelin, hemoglobin synthesis, and gene expression. A mild deficiency may have no symptoms, but a more severe or prolonged deficiency can exhibit the following: Certain conditions can increase the risk of developing a deficiency by interfering with the absorption of vitamin B6: It is quite unlikely to reach a toxic level of vitamin B6 from food sources alone. (PubMed), 68. Treatments for hyperemesis gravidarum and nausea and vomiting in pregnancy: a systematic review. The active form of pyridoxine, pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP), serves as an enzyme cofactor in over 100 enzyme reactions in carbohydrate, lipid, and amino acid metabolism. 2013;44(8):2232-2239. They suggested that higher levels of B6 in the body may reflect the status of other nutrients that are protective against cancer. The authors concluded an unclear role of vitamin B6 in cancer prevention because of the discrepancy between results from epidemiological and intervention studies. 1979;32(10):2040-2046. Pawelec G, Goldeck D, Derhovanessian E. Inflammation, ageing and chronic disease. (PubMed), 14. Even higher amounts of vitamin B6 supplements are sometimes prescribed for medical reasons, but under the supervision of a physician as excess vitamin B6 can cause toxicity. In addition, while supplement intake effectively reduced plasma homocysteine levels compared to placebo, the effect of supplementation on depressive symptoms at the end of the trial was greater in treated subjects in the lowest versus highest quartile of homocysteine levels (≤10 micromoles/liter vs. ≥16.1 micromoles/liter) (82).

The Linus Pauling Institute's Micronutrient Information Center provides scientific information on the health aspects of dietary factors and supplements, food, and beverages for the general public. Pyridoxine taken by mouth (oral) is available without a prescription. A mathematical model of tryptophan metabolism via the kynurenine pathway provides insights into the effects of vitamin B-6 deficiency, tryptophan loading, and induction of tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase on tryptophan metabolites. In the early 1950s, seizures were observed in infants as a result of severe vitamin B6 deficiency caused by an error in the manufacture of infant formula (7). P5P is a coenzyme form of vitamin B6 that helps functioning of nerves, hormones, immune system, anemia, sleep, depression, multiple sclerosis, diabetes. The vitamin B6 forms were extracted from the tissues by perchloric acid and separated by ion ex- change chromatography. Deficiency in another B vitamin, niacin, is easily prevented by adequate dietary intakes. Leklem JE. (PubMed), 46.

In addition, because PLP is required for the methionine cycle, homocysteine catabolism, and thymidylate synthesis, low vitamin B6 status might affect these pathways and potentially increase the risk for chronic conditions. 2004;15(12):3225-3232. Finally, the prevalence of low PLP levels was found to be greater in individuals consuming less than 2 mg/day of vitamin B6 compared to higher intakes. Pyridoxal 5' phosphate (PLP) and pyridoxamine 5' phosphate (PMP) are the active coenzyme forms of vitamin B6 [1,2]. Common and independent reversible risk factors for coronary artery disease. Abnormal electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns have also been reported in vitamin B6-deficient adults. However, the use of separate B6 supplements (apart from the RDA amounts in typical multivitamin preparations) is inconclusive and not recommended. Using food frequency questionnaires, the authors observed that women in the highest quintile of vitamin B6 intakes from both food and supplements (median, 4.6 mg/day) had a 34% lower risk of CAD compared to those in the lowest quintile (median, 1.1 mg/day).
