"I was so glad to find P-5-P in tablet form with just the right dose for me to cut in half so I get my daily needs in one tablet.. I just take half a tablet in the morning and half in the evening to keep my levels even throughtout the day. Helps my my amino acids absorb better."
"A great product with a nice high dose of p5p per tablet. I find that a full tablet is bit much for me so I just break one in half and I'm good to go. Recommend this be taken with a little pyridoxine to get all the benefits of b6."
