Pyridoxal-phosphate (pyridoxal-5'-phosphate or P5P), is the bio active or coenzyme form of vitamin B-6. P5P is a natural form of B6 which is utilised for efficiently for various functions including muscle growth and repair, neurotransmitter functions and energy metabolism. As a coenzyme, P5P also participates in many chemical reactions and catalyzes the conversion of many substances in your body. P5P plays an important role in the build and break down of amino acids from one form to another. P5P has the ability to lower levels of homocysteine in the body, an amino acid which is a potential risk factor for cardiovascular disease, by reducing levels of methionine. Methionine is use in the production of homocysteine and by reducing this P5P can help protect the body from coronary heart disease, hypertension and cerebral vascular disease. Supplementation of P5P may also improve brain function, especially those with autism.It is thought that people with autism are not good at processing vitamin B6 in the active P5P form. By taking P5P and avoiding the need for conversion of normal B6 into its active form via the liver, improvements are seen in cognition and social interaction. It may even play a role in preventing Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease by reduction of homocysteine.

I have been taking P-5-P to treat trigger finger successfully for several years now and have always used Phoenix product.
I take this to help with sulphite sensitivity and histamine intolerance. I take it as a co-enzyme to DAO. It has help me with the neurological symptoms that I suffer due to this. Always reliable and a good price too.
When it was recommended to me that I should start taking P5P, there was only one place I was buying it from. I have purchased from Phoenix Nutrition for many years and it is a supplier I can trust.
Fantastic to be able to find this most bioavailable form. Important for those wanting to manage Homocysteine levels.
