|Plain English Summary:|
|The use of vitamin b6 in the body has many influences, including the neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin. Research in animals has proven that deficiency of vitamin b6 can affect many of the central nervous system functions. The GABA and serotonin neurotransmitters are known to affect the level of depression as well as anxiety in humans. This suggests that the use of a supplement of vitamin b6 can help to reduce unpleasant states caused by abnormal levels of vitamin b6. Vitamin b6 has already been shown to have positive effects on cardiovascular health, and it is believed to have added benefits in aiding to manage depression and anxiety. Supplementation with vitamin b6 can be useful then in regulating anxiety and depression levels, and is a cost effective way to help control these in humans.|
