Vitamin B6 provides support for the body and helps it break down protein and maintain the health of red blood cells, the nervous system, and the immune system. It's also necessary for myelin formation1 (the covering of nerves) and to aid the body in using serotonin and norepinephrine. These two chemicals in the body regulate mood, among other things.2
This vitamin is also involved in the metabolism of amino acids, glucose and lipids in the liver along with playing a significant role in more than 100 metabolic reactions.3 Many healthy foods are excellent sources of Vitamin B6 but when trying to lose weight these foods are usually not part of the diet, resulting in a possible deficiency that can cause many health problems. Our diet products contain many healthy ingredients, including Vitamin B6, to help support your body and maintain optimal health while losing weight.
