Vitamin B6 comprises three bioactive molecules, pyridoxol, pyridoxal and pyridoxamine, whose basic structure is a substituted pyridine ring. They have a fundamental role in the metabolism of many amino acids. The active form of pyridoxal phosphate as a coenzyme is required for the function of more than 60 enzymes.
Vitamin B6 contributes to normal cysteine synthesis, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal homocysteine metabolism and normal protein and glycogen metabolism. Vitamin B6 further contributes to normal psychological function, normal red blood cell formation and to reductions in tiredness and fatigue. This vitamin also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and the regulation of hormonal activity.
Daily consumption of 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink provides a 1,55 mg intake of vitamin B6 (pyridoxin form).
Enjoy Mana as part of your varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Mana is suitable for all healthy adults.
