Pure Encapsulations P5P 50-activated B6 offers support for bones and nerves. P-5-P 50 can help prevent a vitamin B6 deficiency, which has been linked to poor concentration and memory loss, muscle weakness and wasting away, irritability, and sadness. However, a diet that's rich in vitamin B6 is another natural way to boost your levels. During your menstrual cycle, you may be prone to mood swings and a host of other symptoms. However, that doesn't mean that that's the only time your mood fluctuates. Vitamin B6 has been found to support menstrual comfort by helping you maintain healthy neurotransmitter function. This vitamin has also been shown to support a healthy nervous system. Both of these systems promote mental wellbeing. Pyridoxal 5 phosphate (P5P) is the activated form of vitamin B6, meaning that it's the type most easily absorbed and utilized by the body. P-5-P 50 by Pure Encapsulations provides it. If taken, it may ease your mood swings during your period and at other times. Pyridoxal 5 phosphate is used during the process of breaking down the food you eat into energy. P5P is required for the normal functioning of the nervous system, because it's involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, which transmit instructions from your brain to other organs. The nutrient also plays a key role in the production of essential hormones and red blood cells, both of which are required for optimal health. Studies have shown that a combination of P5P and magnesium may be especially beneficial. Recommended use: 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
