Pyridoxine (B6) helps the body form red blood cells and maintain brain function. Vitamin B6, also called niacin, is a water-soluble vitamin so it must be regularly consumed through food. It is sensitive to heat and therefore tends to degrade with increasing temperature. This vitamin plays a fundamental role in the metabolism of sugars, fatty acids and amino acids, and in the formation of white and red blood cells and hormones. It also helps the immune system, prevents aging and stimulates brain function.
