“CrampAssist, 100 caps, SAFA Lab
This product provides pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P-5-P), the active coenzyme form of vitamin B6 that plays an important role in more than 100 different metabolic steps.Magnesium is also included in the formulation to assist vitamin B6 metabolism.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health including protein and amino acid metabolism, red blood cell formation, and synthesis of antibodies important for optimal immune responses. Vitamin B6 also helps maintain normal brain function as it is required for the production of several important neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Major food sources of vitamin B6 include whole grains, bananas, nuts, and meat.
Active, coenzyme form of B6: Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P-5-P) is a body-ready form with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms of vitamin B6. Although pyridoxine hydrochloride is the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in dietary supplements, it must be converted to the active coenzyme form, P-5-P, to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, certain medications, compromised liver function, and enzyme defects can reduce the bodys ability to convert B6 forms such as pyridoxine hydrochloride to P-5-P. In contrast, vitamin B6 as P-5-P is already fully active and readily usable, as it does not require further transformation in the body.
Magnesium: Magnesium is also an essential nutrient that is required as a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions. Metabolic functions such as amino acid metabolism and neurotransmitter production require both magnesium and P-5-P. These two nutrients are frequently found as cofactors for the same enzymes. Magnesium is supplied as an amino acid chelated form that provides highly absorbable magnesium. Binding magnesium with the amino acid glycine creates a natural compound that is efficiently absorbed and easy on the stomach. Unlike many forms of magnesium, this compound is well-tolerated without gastrointestinal side effects.
This dietary supplement can be used whenever a need for supplemental vitamin B6 and magnesium exists. This product is free of common allergens including milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans.
This product was made in a GMP and ISO 9001:2000 registered facility.”
