Target & Goal
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin. There are three different natural forms of vitamin B6, namely pyridoxine, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxal, all of which are normally present in foods. For human metabolism the active derivative of the vitamin, pyridoxal 5`-phosphate (PLP), is of major importance.
Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine. It is involved in the process of making serotonin and norepinephrine, which are chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the formation of myelin, a protein layer that forms around nerve cells.
So now you know, how important this vitamin for our body is!
Vitamin B6 deficiency in adults may cause health problems like:
• Weak nerves
• Skin, mucous membranes
• Circulatory system disorders
• Low immunity or susceptibility to infections
In children, the deficiency may lead to an impairment of the Central nervous system.
Deficiency can occur in people with kidney failure complications, alcoholism, liver scarring, overactive thyroid, problems with absorbing nutrients, and heart failure, as well as those taking certain medications.
Each individual’s body is designed uniquely. Hence, the gene test tells us how your body is able to absorb and assimilate vitamin B6 to its optimum level.
Genetic test results
The test results will contain the examined, active genes in the test. The diagnosed test report will be formatted and will be mailed electronically to the subject as an attached file. Please note, this test does not diagnose any sickness, but associates the subject to his or her population group based on the tested gene.
How the test is performed
The test is performed using a sampling toolkit of saliva or mucosa. The test is simple, painless, and subject-friendly; suitable for any age. Children under the age of 18 will need a parent signature in a parent agreement form.
