"Vitamin B6 is required by enzymes that synthesize dopamine and serotonin. To be an active coenzyme, it must be converted to pyridoxal 5’-phosphate (P5P)."

"I've been adding items to my standard nutritional supports in order to boost mitochondrial health. This supplement is the active form of B-6 so it gives a person exactly what's needed. There are many interesting clinical trials involving this nutrient and another closely related comopund. If you're considering purchasing P-5-P Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate those studies may interest you."

"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."

Very good source of active B6.
 February 12, 2009
"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."
