Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6, more commonly known as Pyridoxine (a synthetic form), is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the B vitamin family. The term vitamin B6 refers to six common forms, namely pyridoxal, Pyridoxinee (pyridoxol), pyridoxamine, and their phosphorylated forms. The phosphate ester derivative pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP) is the bioactive coenzyme form involved in over 4% of all enzymatic reactions.


Vitamin B6 chemical structures

Food sources of vitamin B-6 include poultry, fish, potatoes, chickpeas and bananas. Vitamin B-6 can also be taken as a supplement, typically as an oral capsule, tablet or liquid.  Vitamin B6 must be obtained from the diet because humans cannot synthesize it.

There has been substantial debate about blood levels of vitamin B6 and their relationship both to dietary intake and overall health. This debate has centered around the fact that a person can consume the recommended dietary amount of vitamin B6 (our WHFoods recommended level is 1.7 milligrams) and yet have a blood level of vitamin B6 (in the form of plasma PLP) that may not be optimal for metabolism.

Creative Diagnostics provide a series of Vitamin B6 antibodies and conjugates for new detection method development.
