Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and other nitrogen
compounds. In the liver, pyridoxine is essential for glucose production from amino acids via
its role as coenzyme for the transaminase enzymes. Pyridoxine is also needed by the liver
and muscles to make stored glycogen available for glucose production, and to synthesize
niacin from the amino acid tryptophan.
In red blood cells, pyridoxine is needed for hemoglobin synthesis, and regulates its oxygen
affinity. Additionally, steroid hormone action is modulated by pyridoxine at the receptor level.
In the nervous system, pyridoxine is needed to synthesize several neurotransmitters, such
as serotonin (from tryptophan), taurine, dopamine, norepinephrine, histamine and gammaaminobutyric
Many experimental and clinical observations support the fact that adequate amounts of
dietary vitamin B6 are required to maintain normal nervous system function.
