Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is kinda like a co-enzyme. Vitamin B6 is needed for the proper function of sugars, fats, and proteins in the body. It’s also necessary for the development of the brain, nerves, skin, and many other parts of the body

Vitamin B6

It’s a helper vitamin involved in so many different body chemical reactions .

It’s kinda like the the catalyst , the thing that allows everything to work .

It’s like the glue that connects things together .

But you have the inactive version , okay , and then the active version which is called Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate .

Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate

It’s PLP .

And , if you’re gonna take a supplement , I think I would recommend this active form because it’s stronger and it’s , it’s pretty effective for a lot of different things .

Symptoms of Vitamin B6 deficiency

  • *Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • *Pins and needles
  • *Fluid retention
  • *Sleep problems
  • *Neuropathy
  • *Trigger finger
  • *Fatigue
  • *Dermatitis
  • *Cracks in the corner of your mouth
  • *Sleepiness

Also fluid retention .

Pins and needles , sleep problems , neuropathy , that’s nerve damage , trigger finger , fatigue , dermatitis , cracks in the corners of your mouth right here , sleepiness to the point where you need so much sleep and you can’t seem to recover .

I mean , you can’t seem to wake up , basically .

You’re just like sleeping .

You’re just not waking up .

You might have a child like that that just won’t get out of bed .

Give them some Vitamin B6

Heart attacks , mainly due because a Vitamin B6 deficiency will increase , something called homocysteine which I’m gonna put a link down there below but it’s an it’s a risk factor for heart attacks and heart problems .

So the function is a catalyst for over a 100 enzymes mainly in protein reactions .

Helps you make the blood .

Makes GABA which is a neurotransmitter that helps with your mood and relaxation and stress and pleasure .

It makes helps you bring your mood up .

Glycogen breakdown , it breaks down sugar so it’s involved in blood sugars .

It’s involved in metabolism in general and also in the making of neurotransmitters .

And that would be like serotonin and everything .

Those are all protein based .

What Would Cause Vitamin B6 a Deficiency

Vitamin B6 a Deficiency
  • *Alcohol
  • *Diabetic
  • *Live problems
  • *Gut problems
  • *Rheumatoid arthritis
  • *Birth control pills
  • *Antibiotics
  • *Steroids

What would cause a deficiency , which is interesting because this is on a lot of foods .

It’s very easy to get this vitamin , but it’s really not that you’re not getting it from your diet .

It’s that either maybe you’re drinking , you know , alcohol that could be depleting it , or you’re diabetic or have blood sugar problems because insulin can lower that as well .


Insulin resistance , liver damage or dysfunction , gallbladder problems , ear , bowel issues , leaky gut , any type of IBS , any type of bowel problem .

Let’s say you had gastric bypass , rheumatoid arthritis , birth control pills , antibiotics , or steroids which is adrenal hormones like cortisone or prednisone .

That will deplete this and you may find that , you know , you can start developing these symptoms and all you have to do is take some of this and you’ll start feeling better immediately .
