The Life Saving Value of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) and Magnesium | Terry Talks Nutrition

Everyone has heard of vitamin B6 and a few may even be able to tell you that the B vitamins have a lot of research on energy and the nervous system. Vitamin B6 is critical for life itself. 

Having low levels of this key nutrient can lead to skin disorders, depression, dizziness, headaches, and other, more serious problems, such as heart attacks and strokes. Yet you may be surprised to learn that vitamin B6 is one of the best natural compounds around to treat all kinds of nerve pain. 

But it is not always easy to get from the diet. Did you know that cooking, freezing, canning, storing or processing foods can deplete their vitamin B6 content by as much as 50%? And did you know that some people cannot use certain forms of vitamin B6 effectively? 

There is a special, active form of vitamin B6 that your body can easily utilize called pyridoxal-5-phosphate, or P5P for short. This form has amazing healing properties for people suffering from nerve pain, burning feet (diabetic neuropathy), carpal tunnel syndrome, PMS, and edema (water retention), among other conditions. The results for these people can be outstanding.

Water retention (edema) in PMS and Pregnancy 
Hormonal changes around the menstrual cycle and during pregnancy often trigger water retention. Retention of water can cause clothing, jewelry and even shoes to be uncomfortably tight.  In fact, retaining water can increase weight by as much as four or five pounds. High levels of estrogen and progesterone cause a woman’s body to retain sodium (salt), which in turn causes water to become trapped in the cells. Vitamin B6 helps the liver process these hormones more efficiently and balance sodium levels, leading to a reduction in symptoms such as water retention. In one study, supplemental vitamin B6 helped reduce the breast tenderness, headaches and weight gain associated with water retention in 215 women. Some women think they should limit their water intake prior to their menstrual period in an attempt to reduce problematic edema. Nothing could be further from the truth! If you don’t give your body enough fluid, it actually holds on to water. Think of it this way: if you have tons of money in the bank, you don’t mind spending a few dollars at the mall, but if your bank account is dangerously low, you are going to hold on to that money. Drinking 8 glasses of healthy, pure water each day has multiple benefits, including improving water balance in the body.
