P-5-P/Mag™

Because of its role as a co-factor (or assistant) to over a 100 different enzymes, vitamin B6 levels have an impact on many body systems that would seem unrelated at first glance.1 P-5-P with Magnesium contains this crucial vitamin in its most absorbable form – pyridoxal-5-phosphate, or P-5-P.  This formula is ideal for healthy joint support, supporting mood and relieving stress, promoting healthy fluid balance, and more. The addition of magnesium promotes optimal P-5-P absorption and aids in cellular energy production and support of many health systems.3

Vitamin B6: Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P-5-P):  Low levels of vitamin B6, especially the active coenzyme form, pyridoxal-5-phosphate found naturally in the blood, may be a factor in serotonin production and other reactions in the body that determine mood and nervous system function.1,2 Randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical studies have also shown that vitamin B6 can help relieve stress associated with premenstrual syndrome.3 It is also considered a strong supporter of healthy muscle function, especially for individuals working in tasks requiring repetitive movement.*4,5

Magnesium: (as magnesium glycinate chelate) Magnesium is involved with the production of cellular energy throughout the body. It supports thyroid health and hormone production, bone metabolism, and healthy blood pressure levels already within normal limits.*6-9 Magnesium in its chelated form is highly absorbable and aids in the absorption of pyridoxal-5-phosphate.

FAQ's

P-5-P/Mag™

Q: I’ve heard that magnesium can cause diarrhea. What makes this one different?

Like all supplemental ingredients, absorption is the key. Because magnesium glycinate chelate is more easily absorbed and used by the body, less remains unabsorbed in the intestines. Magnesium attracts water, so if it is not well-absorbed, it can cause loose stools. Because magnesium glycinate is so well-absorbed, this is not a problem.

Q: Can P-5-P/Mag help with PMS?

Absolutely. Not only has P-5-P been shown to reduce premenstrual tension, it relieves water retention and bloating.
