Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an essential role in several biological functions of the human body.



Vitamin B6 plays a role in the synthesis of red blood cells and the formation of hemoglobin, associated with vitamins B9 and B12. It contributes to regulating hormonal activity. Vitamin B6 helps reduce fatigue and supports the normal functioning of the immune system.

Biological Functions:

Protein Metabolism: Vitamin B6 is involved in protein metabolism, aiding in the conversion of amino acids.

Neurotransmitter Synthesis: It participates in the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, crucial for the transmission of nerve signals.

Red Blood Cell Formation: Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells.

Food Sources: Vitamin B6 is found in a variety of foods, including meat (chicken, turkey, pork), fish, whole grains, leafy green vegetables, bananas, nuts, and seeds.

Daily Requirements:

The daily requirements for vitamin B6 vary based on age, gender, and other factors.

Vitamin B6 Deficiency:

A deficiency in vitamin B6 can lead to symptoms such as skin disorders, neurological issues, seizures, and anemia.


Vitamin B6 supplements are sometimes used to treat certain medical conditions, but it's essential to consult a healthcare professional before taking supplements, as excessive levels of vitamin B6 can be harmful.

Interaction with Other B Vitamins:

Vitamin B6 works synergistically with other B vitamins, including vitamin B12 and vitamin B9 (folic acid), to support various metabolic processes.
