Taken in combination with B-12 & Folic Acid which is a B vitamin as well. Good for cardiovascular health. I'll write more after I get my blood tested in a couple of months. Had 3 heart attacks in 2 weeks 6 years ago and don't take any medication at all. I just take NOW brand products such as Red Yeast Rice, Blueberry Extract, Vitamin C,B-12, B-6 with magnesium, & Folic Acid. So far everything checks out good. Great poducts!!!!!!! R. Nelson

For years I was taking L-Glutamine for gut support, liver support, and energy. I also took a Multi-B vitamin for the synergistic benefit. By accident, I found science that told me the Co-enzyme form of B6 allowed the body to much better utilize the Glutamine. By the time I had finished the first bottle, I could tell the difference, especially when it comes to the mid-day slump.

I am using this to help absorb magnesium. It seems to be working well.

Since my liver does not process B6 very well, Now's P-5-P has been working great for me for several years. It has been wonderful! Thank you Now!

Good value for money but the supplement would have been better if they had excluded the Magnesium Oxide which acts like a laxative.. I get loose stools if I take 3-4 of those a day.

This keeps me really well balanced hormonally and as such it is an essential daily supplement for me. I have little to no PMS when I take it, and I really notice a difference in my moods and general wellbeing on a daily basis.

I tried this after taking normal b6 for years without any relief. I had severe fluid retention in my hands, feet and just under my knees. Pain severe. I was told by a friend (who is a homeopath) that p-5-p is better absorbed, so I ordered Now foods P-5-P straight away from I-herb. The difference was noticeable after 1 week. I was taking it for a couple of months, with no swelling or pain. Unfortunately I ran out a couple of weeks ago and I thought I would see what happens. The fluid retention came back and the pain is severe again. So on the 30th Dec I ordered more from Iherb. with DHL express courier ($8) to Australia. My order arrived today (2nd January). Amazing service. Don't hesitate to order from iherb.

This is one of my favourite supps. I have used it for a no of years. The P5P form of B6 seems to give me a much needed boost and the magnesium seems to work well as well. They say MgO does not absorb well, however I find I reallylike this and seem to get benefit from it. Maybe it is the taurinate form of the magnesium , but I think it is both together.

Need to synthesize amino acids into neurotransmitters. I was taking Solgar P5P. It worked, but I noticed I was peeing most of it out. NOW P5P takes longer to digest, but I don't lose any in digestion. Good stuff.
