Vitamins ensure that our bodies function every day. Time to get to know them.
In our series, we introduce you to 9 vitamins: Where do they occur? What function(s) do they have? How much does a person need?
In episode 1, we start with vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine). Check out our infographic for more facts.
I am vitamin B6.
We have been working together for many years. Actually, since you were born. I work for you every day to keep your brain and muscles functioning.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Pyridoxine, but they call me vitamin B6. There are 13 vitamins, so I have 12 brothers and sisters. 9 of us are water soluble and 4 are fat soluble.
Some of us your body can make itself, but some – like me – you take in with food. I, the vitamin B6, can be found in meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, for example.
In the graphic you can see why I am important for you. And so you can test which foods contain me.
Check back regularly and get to know my vitamin family.
