Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (Vitamin B6) Can Help Slow the Aging Process
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCl), found in conventional supplements, plays a crucial role in numerous life processes. Pyridoxal 5’-phosphateis the metabolically active form of vitamin B6 that has been shown to protect living lipids and proteins against glycation reactions. Aging results in the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) throughout the body.
Sugar (glucose) in the blood can react with proteins and lipids in the body, particularly when blood levels are high. This unwanted reaction causes the formation of AGEs, which accumulate with time and contribute to some of the signs of aging.
Life Extension had recently released information which found that high-dose carnosine and benfotiamine can be helpful in inhibiting AGE formation. The latest information shows that pyridoxal 5’-phosphate may also be of significant help in blocking these molecules associated with the aging process. By inhibiting AGE formation and working as a coenzyme in chemical reactions, pyridoxal 5’-phosphate can support healthy nerve, eye, cardiovascular and kidney function. In addition to this standalone product, Life Extension offers pyridoxal 5’-phosphate in two premier formulations: Life Extension Mix™ and Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ™.
