Rated 5 out of 5 by VitaminPro14 The Most Important Vitamin
Robert Atkins, M.D., who wrote the extraordinary nutrition book "Vita-Nutrient Solution" said that vitamin B6 appeared in more of his health protocols than any other nutrient, because vitamin B6 plays a role in more essential bodily processes than any other nutrient.
Because government regulations prevent me from giving you specific details about supplements, I urge you to get a copy of Dr. Atkins book, and see for yourself just how essential this one vitamin alone is to your health.
And this form (P5P) is 5x more bioavailable than the typical supplement form (Thiamin).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clancy BETTER FORM OF B6
This form of B6 is in the form the body can assimilate it without digestion. I is absorbed and ready for work immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillieCanuckland P-5-P what the doctor ordered
We buy this simply because our doctor told us that she recommends having at least 25mg of vitamin B6 per day. So this form of B6 (P-5-P) is the most bioavailabale form.
Add this to a whole food multivitamin, and we are covered.

I like taking these when I want to make sure that I get good mileage from any amino supplements that I'm taking. I will usually take with either DLPA, Arginine, Lysine, Tryptophan or Tyrosine depending on what I'm trying to accomplish. In all cases the extra shot of B6 seems to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gigimom Good product and convenient
I was recommended to take a high dose of vitamin B-6 and was told P-5-P is absorbed better than regular B-6. In addition to this product, it is also included in a combination product that I am taking. Will possibly find out more about the effectiveness after my next lab tests. This is a small capsule and since you only need to take it with water, it is very convenient. I generally take it in the evening, near bedtime.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Blazer Not practical
This B-6 supplement turned out to be stronger than I thought. It's a little more than I needed or was hoping for. I also don't know when it's practical to take it. B vitamins are more effective when they are balanced. They are not as potent when used separately.

P-5-P is claimed to be a well-absorbed form of vitamin B6. Seems to work well in that regard, and does so at a good price. Will continue to purchase this.

I was recommended to use pyridoxal-5-phosphate as I was told as we age our digestive system does not absorb the other forms of vit B 6 correctly and you do not get the benefit. The other brand was more expensive and lower dose so I have to take more pills. So glad Swanson started carrying this product. As always great products great value.

This totally worked for me. I had to look up again what the activated form of B-6 does, since the results were so dramatic, and this does it all. I have been taking standard B-6 in my B complex and on its own for years, and have known about the active form of B's but did not think I needed them. This is the first time I got really great results from B-6. I am very pleased, just wish I would have tried it sooner. I have also switched to using Co-enzyme B complex to make sure this is the only form of B-6, and other B's I take, so they all work really well and contribute to my health. I can feel a big and goo difference. Tbjs B-6 is very strong and I need to open the capsule and take a little a few times a day. One capsule lasts me 2 -5 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nightofstars Swanson P-5-P 40mg
The 4 I gave in effectiveness is because I don't know how to technically measure the effectiveness & it 'may' be effective at a higher mg; but, I am not sure about this. The education that Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is supposed to be a more effective version then B-6 pyrodoxine alone is very good, so I'm glad P-5-P is available to us. From the education, to get the opportunity to buy the 3 affordable bottles at 40 mg from Swanson I have bought now saved me some time & trouble having to keep going on looking for the product. I would like the higher mg's to be sold & was wondering if there was a scientific (or otherwise) reason why P-5-P is available at such a lower mg [?], but am glad for the research done & availability/affordability of the product.
