"P-5-P is the active co-enzyme form of vitamin B6, and is a more absorbable form of the vitamin. The co-enzymes of vitamin B6 play an important role in the production of red blood cells, metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, energy release from foods, and maintaining a healthy nervous system and brain function. Heavy drinkers, smokers, menstruating and pregnant women, women during the menopause, adolescents, the elderly, those with a mentally or physically demanding lifestyle, and those on certain prescription medication (e.g. some antibiotics, blood pressure medication and contraceptive pills) may have an increased dietary requirement for vitamin B6."
