B6 vitamine sexual heath

B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. The B vitamins were once thought to be a single vitamin, referred to as vitamin B (much as people refer to vitamin C or vitamin D). Later research showed that they are chemically distinct vitamins that often coexist in the same foods. In general, supplements containing all eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex. Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific name of each vitamin (e.g., B1, B2, B3 etc.).

Vitamin B-6 is primarily involved in protein metabolism, but also functions, to a lesser degree, in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. This vitamin, also called pyridoxine, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxal, is necessary for the functioning of numerous enzymes inside our bodies. Since it is a co-factor to many enzymes, it is necessary for many of them to work. Because of this, Vitamin B-6 plays a role in a wide variety of metabolic reactions, it is recommended (although not always accurately) for a diverse spectrum of conditions, such as improved mood and nervous system functioning, increased immunity, decreased inflammation, arthritis relief, among others.

Pyridoxine, like the other B vitamins, plays an important role in maintaining the nervous and cardiovascular systems as well as the muscle tone of the gastrointestinal tract.  The B vitamins are also vital for energy production.


Vitamin B6 is itself involved in more than 100 enzyme processes that have a wide impact on our health. It is needed for the synthesis of amino acids that the body uses to build proteins that are essential for cell formation, and the growth and repair of practically all body structures.


Due to its role in the production of new cells, it is especially important to tissues that regenerate quickly, such as skin and mucous membranes.


This list summarizes the many ways vitamin B6 benefits our health.


1. helps the immune system to produce antibodies which are needed to fight off diseases, especially in older people who tend to have impaired immune systems
2. helps the body break down fats and carbohydrates (starch and sugar) to produce energy
3. helps regulate blood sugar (glucose) levels within a normal range
4. needed for the metabolism of protein from food
5. essential for new cell formation and growth
6. promotes healthy skin and mucous membranes that act as an effective barrier against bacteria and viruses
7. needed to make red blood cells and the hemoglobin that carries oxygen to tissues
8. important for nerve and brain function, as it is needed for production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and norepinephrine, and formation of the myelin sheath around nerves
9. preliminary evidence suggests that pyridoxine’s role in serotonin production helps it to treat mental depression as well
10. helps the body convert the amino acid tryptophan to vitamin B3 (niacin)
11. has been shown to work with vitamins B12 and B9 (folic acid) to reduce the risk of heart disease by inhibiting formation of homocysteine, a toxic chemical that attacks heart muscles and allows deposition of cholesterol around the heart and arteries and is associated with atherosclerosis
12. some evidence it may reduce PMS (premenstrual syndrome) symptoms like breast tenderness or pain and PMS related anxiety or depression
13. helps prevent kidney stones, as pyridoxine (alone or with magnesium) helps lower urinary oxalate levels that can lead to a type of kidney stone formation in women
14. initial studies suggest that large doses under medical supervision may be useful in treating treat carpal tunnel syndrome

    1905, the first scientist to determine that if special factors (vitamins) were removed from food disease occurred, was Englishmen, William Fletcher. Doctor Fletcher was researching the causes of the disease Beriberi when he discovered that eating unpolished rice prevented Beriberi and eating polished rice did not.
