Overall health Benefits:
Boosts mood, improves brain health, increases nervous system functioning and improves sleep regulation.* B6 reduces inflammation and is essential for the synthesis of progesterone- the brain calming hormone that comes in the 2nd half of the cycle. B6 also assists with healthy estrogen detoxification which is critical for a PMS-free and pain-free period. Lastly, B6 can help kick sugar cravings, balance heavy periods and ease perimenopause.
The cycle science of B6:
OVA MOON has 40mg of B6, the activated coenzyme metabolite form called Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P5P). It is absorbed readily and used in the brain as a neurotransmitter converter of tryptophan to serotonin, and to boost GABA, the feel good brain chemicals. Interestingly, the body excretes excess B vitamins daily, so it’s important to have a steady intake. B6 also helps with the production of hemoglobin (the protein in blood that carries oxygen throughout the body).
