Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine: Vital for Brain function,
and Anti-inflammatory effects By Dr. James Meschino, DC, MS, ND Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is vital for brain
function and has tremendous anti-inflammatory effects. Pyridoxine or Vitamin B6 has many
important functions in the body. Let me review some of those for you.
• It’s important for the formation of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in your red blood cells.
• It is important to make anti-inflammatory hormones called prostaglandins that suppress
the inflammatory process in the body. • Is required to make the myelin sheath
which insulates many of the nerve cells in the body.
• It also augments immune system function. Vitamin B6 deficiency is characterized by
depression, like mental depression, also impaired use of blood sugar glucose intolerance because
you need Vitamin B6 to release glucose from the liver into the bloodstream. Also B6 deficiency
often shows up as a certain type of anemia, so your red blood cell changes in shape and
number. You also see impaired nerve function, resulting in numbness into the hands and feet
and altered mobility, you can’t function normally. Certain cracks in the lips, in the tongue
can be a sign of Vitamin B6 deficiency, as well as flare-ups of seborrhoea or eczema.
Supplementation studies show the Vitamin B6 is very helpful in suppressing certain inflammatory
conditions especially when used with the right essential fatty acid supplements. B6 also
lowers blood chemical known as homocysteine. When homocysteine rises, it increases the
risk of heart disease and stroke. So keeping homocysteine level down is very desirable.
Vitamin B6 does that, as well as folic acid and Vitamin B12. So there three B Vitamins
work together to help reduce the risk of vascular disease by keeping homocysteine level down.
Vitamin B6 deficiency also is responsible for some diabetic neuropathy problems. They
have been used to help treat diabetic neuropathy and improve the outcomes. Also, B6 supplementation
with magnesium has been shown to prevent the recurrence of kidney stones.
