If your tongue is swollen‚ your lips are scaly‚ and the corners of your mouth are cracked‚ you may have a vitamin B6 deficiency. This deficiency isn’t very common these days‚ because vitamin B6 is widely available through your diet and is often added to packaged foods. Unfortunately‚ having inflammatory bowel disease or kidney problems can put you at risk‚ because they prevent the full absorption of the nutrient.
Not having enough B6 in your diet can cause you to have health problems like anemia‚ sadness‚ dermatitis‚ and confusion. This important vitamin is found in fish‚ organ meats‚ grains‚ vegetables‚ and fruits.
Vitamin B6 is not a single vitamin‚ but actually a group of compounds‚ or vitamers. Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate is the active form of vitamin B6 that your body is able to utilize; it plays an important role in creating and breaking down amino acids and proteins. It’s also active in supporting the health of your cells and DNA‚ as well as using carbohydrates and lipids (fat) for energy. Meanwhile‚ folate and vitamin B12 work along with vitamin B6 to promote health.
NVS’s Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate contains the highly absorbable form of vitamin B6‚ which is a water-soluble nutrient essential for normal cellular growth and repair.
