Vitamin B6 is probably involved in more processes in the body than any other B vitamins, but despite this up to 25% of women have diets that provide less than the reference nutrient intakes (RNI's) for this vitamin.
Lamberts Vitamin B6 is popular with women as a pre-menstrual supplement as there is some evidence that it may assist in essential fatty acid metabolism and fluid balance.
It is now well established that deficiencies of Vitamin B6 can raise homocysteine (an amino acid) levels in the blood, a factor that has been implicated in the development of cardiovascular diseases.
Vitamin B6 refers to a family of three closely related, water soluble compounds; pyridoxine, pyridoxal and pyridoxamine. The conversion of Vitamin B6 into the active compound of pyridoxal-5-phosphate occurs naturally in the human body, and whilst supplements providing P-5-P are believed to be slightly better absorbed than pyridoxine, the difference is not seen as sufficient reason to use this more expensive form of the nutrient.
