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

The P-5-P form of vitamin B6 is the active form. Those with the MTHFR gene mutation need to take the active forms of B vitamins as their bodies do not convert very well from the inactive form. I take 100 to 150 mg at bed time as it helps in the process of sleep. If you can't recall your dreams take one cap and see what that does for you. It helps you get into the REM stage of sleep which is where you dream and where your body does much repair. Vitamin B6 is a co-factor in many biological processes. Some people also take this for social anxiety. Start low and slowly work up until you feel some results. I only give this 4 stars because it is a tablet and not a capsule. Tablets are not as well absorbed. Otherwise it is a good product. If you found this review helpful go to my iHerb home page and read more value added reviews.

It’s hard ro give a review of this product as my partner takes it as a preventative against Parkinsons disease. Having checked out side effects online, it seems to me that this stuff is pretty strong and could cause problems in some individuals. We are aware of potential symptoms (eg nerve pain) and will discontinue if he starts to show any signs. I tried one and it gave me a burst of energy, so I may take it occasionally. I wouldn’t take it regularly because I have severe chronic insomnia and b vitamins can make this worse. (This supplement is a form of b6).

I feel healthier when taking these, tried many multi-vitamin complex before but those were often just making me more tired. Re-ordered. PS: colors your urine unnaturally bright yellow right away, but I think it's ok

Got this along with some other B vitamins for my daughter who has been under stress and has had anxiety and energy issues. She called to let me know she has been doing much better since she started taking them. She has more energy and has a more positive outlook and is handling stress with more ease.
