Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble nutrient (like all B vitamins). Three related nutrient compounds — pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine — are all part of the B6 group. Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) is the active form of pyridoxine in the human body.
People who eat a balanced diet containing good sources of Vitamin B6 should be able to meet the daily requirement without taking a supplement. Deficiency of Vitamin B6 is rare but can occur among the elderly and among alcoholics.
