The Ecology of Humans (46-2-5) Vitamin B6


Vitamin B6 (C8H10NO6P; pyridoxal phosphate (active form)) is instrumental in metabolism, gene expression, and synthesis of neurotransmitters, histamine, and hemoglobin.

Many foods contain vitamin B6. Foods high in B6 include sunflower seeds, soybeans, walnuts, lentils, beans and peas, bananas, avocados, leafy greens such as kale and spinach, and fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines).
