Vitamin of the Week: Vitamin B6

Filed Under: Vitamins and Minerals at 9:31 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Bananas are a great source of Vitamin B6Eating well is one of the hardest tasks in our lives. We always seem to be lacking vitamins and minerals no matter how hard we try. Lack of energy, fatigue, sleep problems, stress are all part of our list of regular problems.

We don’t really know what the problem is when you are eating well and still dragging. You could be lacking a very important vitamin: B6.

Vitamin B6 is directly responsible for your metabolism, processing amino acids and several metabolic processes, such as neurotransmitter, histamine and hemoglobin synthesis. Simplifying it, vitamin B6 helps the breakdown of many amino acids, producing enzymes and hormones.

Consider this: you could be eating fairly well, but if you are lacking vitamin B6, (and most likely all the other forms of vitamin B) your body is not generating energy properly. The metabolism is responsible for the food breakdown, if your system isn’t taking the most of what you are eating, you will lack energy, no matter how well you eat.

Energy boosters normally add a good amount of Vitamin B6 and B12 in order to regulate lack of energy. But many foods can help as well. Meats, bananas, potatoes, turkey, tuna, whole grain products and nuts are great sources of vitamin B6

But how do you know if you are not getting enough vitamin B6? Anemia, vomiting, nausea, depression are the most commons signs you should be getting more B6.
Vitamin B6 is also very beneficial to autistic individuals. Studies have proved the use of B6 with Magnesium may be a very effective intervention for autistic children and adults.
