Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is one of the vitamins included in the vitamin B family. All B vitamins, including vitamin B6, play an important role in a range of physical & psychological functions. However, they are commonly known for helping to maintain a healthy metabolism as well as supporting nerve and liver function.Vitamin B6 Benefits:
- Maintains Healthy Blood Vessels
- Supports Brain Function
- May Improve Mood
Much like vitamin B6, some prescription antidepressant medications work to increase levels of serotonin. Research has shown that vitamin B6 has a significant impact on the central production of both serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters in the brain. These are important compounds that control mood and are needed to prevent depression, pain, fatigue, and anxiety. Although more research is still needed, some studies suggest that vitamin B6 could have a favourable effect on mood and mental health due to its positive effects on these key neurotransmitters.
Zinc is a type of metal and an essential trace element. It is present within all bodily tissue and needed for healthy cell division. It acts like an antioxidant within the body, fighting free-radical damage and slowing the aging process. Zinc also has a major impact on hormonal balance, so for this reason, even a small zinc deficiency can result in an increased risk for infertility or diabetes.

The National Institutes of Health’s definition of magnesium is “an abundant mineral in the body that is naturally present in many foods, added to other food products and available as a dietary supplement, and present in some medicines (such as antacids and laxatives).”
Magnesium is both an essential mineral and electrolyte. It’s involved in the regulation of cellular stress and activity, which means people experiencing lots of stress may benefit from increasing their intake.
Magnesium glycinate is one type of magnesium supplement that is available to increase levels in people who can use more magnesium, including those with anxiety, diabetes, heart issues, and pain. It consists of the mineral magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine. It’s considered to be one of the most effective types of magnesium supplements due to its bio-availability — plus it’s also fast-acting, generally well-tolerated and unlikely to cause loose stools (diarrhoea).
