The following is quoted from NootropicExpert.com.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine, Pyridoxal, Pyridoxamine) is one of 8 B-vitamins. B6 is water-soluble and found in every single cell in your body.
Vitamin B6 is known to enhance alertness, cognition, energy, elevate mood, lower anxiety and normalize homocysteine levels.
As a nootropic, Vitamin B6 is crucial for the synthesis of these neurotransmitters. Even mild deficiency results in down-regulation of GABA and serotonin synthesis. Leading to poor sleep, behavior, cardiovascular function, and the loss of hypothalamus-pituitary control of hormone secretion.[ii]
Vitamin B6 was first isolated in the 1930’s. The “6” in Vitamin B6 refers to six common forms, namely pyridoxal, pyridoxine (pyridoxol), pyridoxamine, and their phosphorylated forms.
Pyridoxal phosphate (pyridoxal 5′-phosphate, P-5-P, PLP), the active form of Vitamin B6 is said to be the most versatile organic cofactor in biology. More than 140 distinct enzyme activities in your body and brain depend on PLP.[iii]
The biochemical reactions in your body by PLP-dependent enzymes include the making of hemoglobin, amino acid synthesis, and fatty acid metabolism.
PLP also functions as a coenzyme that catalyzes the release of glucose from stored glycogen. Turning it into the type of energy your brain cells can use for fuel.
