P5P or Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate is the activated form of vitamin B6. This activation takes place in the liver, however in some individuals with the MTHFR gene mutation, vitamin B6 cannot be broken down properly to be metabolised into the active form in the blood and be absorbed in the cells. It is therefore recommended to supplement with P5P in its purest form, such as P5P 50 from Pure Encapsulations. This way, it doesn’t have to go through the conversion process in the liver, meaning it’s possible to get the benefits more efficiently.
P5P is vital for conversion of protein and carbohydrate stores into glucose to support energy levels. It is of benefit in treating the symptoms of PMS, including breast pain and depression. It is recommended during pregnancy to reduce morning sickness. It is responsible for the formation of collagen which supports healthy skin, nail, and hair growth. It’s also crucial for the production of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) and plays an important role in the creation of serotonin. Serotonin is the body’s ‘feel good’ brain chemical, which can help to prevent depression and balance moods. Supplementing with P5P leads to more focus, better mood, and improved motivation.
P5P has natural anti-inflammatory potential, boosting the immune system to prevent illness. It also encourages the creation of red blood cells and transporting oxygen around the body.
