What is Pyridoxine HCL?

Pyridoxine Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt form of pyridoxine, a water-soluble vitamin B. Pyridoxine hydrochloride is converted into the active form, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP), an essential cofactor in many enzymatic activities including synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters, and sphingolipids. This vitamin is essential to red blood cell, nervous system, and immune systems functions and helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.

Pyridoxine chloride is the hydrochloride salt of pyridoxine. It is a hydrochloride and a vitamin B6 and It contains a pyridoxine.

Pyridoxine HCL provides pyridoxine, which is also known as vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is naturally found in foods such as cereals, beans, vegetables, liver, meat, and eggs.  Vitamin B6 functionalizes as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate, and fat. Vitamin 6 is needed to maintain the health of nerves, skin, and red blood cells. Pyridoxine is used to prevent or treat vitamin B6 deficiency caused by inadequate dietary intake. It is also used to treat drug induced deficiency in patients taking isoniazid or oral contraceptives.

Pyridoxine Uses          

(1) Application in emergency medicine

Vitamin B6 participates in amino acid metabolism and is related to the synthesis of central neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It has a certain detoxification and antispasmodic effect. It is often used in emergency rescue in recent years.

(2) Application in cardiovascular disease

Vitamin B6 is beneficial to some patients with cardiovascular diseases. Homocysteine (homocysteine, Hcy) is an intermediate metabolite of methionine metabolism. Abnormally elevated levels of Hcy in plasma can damage endothelial cells and blood vessels, which is a risk factor for a variety of cardiovascular diseases.

(3) Application in gynecological diseases

Vitamin B6 is a coenzyme for the synthesis of GABA and serotonin, which can reduce nerve excitability and relax uterine smooth muscles. Therefore, it can effectively treat female primary dysmenorrhea, and has the advantages of less side effects with low cost.
