Why Take Metagenics Cortico B5 B6?

Metagenics Cortico B5 B6 is formulated to support a variety of functions within the body by providing water soluble B vitamins which are important for many physiologic functions. 

Metagenics Cortico B5 B6 contains B5 which is also known as pantothenic acid.  It helps convert food into glucose, the bodies fuel to produce energy.  The B vitamins, including B5 and B6, are needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, liver and nervous system function.  It is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells as well as the stress related hormone, cortisol, that is produced in the adrenal glands.  

Symptoms of vitamin B5 deficiency may include:

  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • depression
  • irritability
  • burning feet
  • upper respiratory infections
  • adrenal fatigue
Vitamin B5 combined with vitamin C has been shown to increase wound healing after surgery.

Metagenics Cortico B5 B6 also contains B6 which is known as pyrodoxine. B6 is important in neurotransmitter production.  These are the chemicals that carry signals between nerve cells.  It is also needed for the development and function of the brain and in the production of serotonin, norepinephrine and melatonin which all help regulate mood and the circadian rythyms or the body's time clock.  

Symptoms of B6 Deficiency include:

  • muscle weakness
  • nervousness
  • irritability
  • depression
  • memory loss
  • difficulty concentration
  • elevated homocysteine
  • adrenal fatigue  

How can Metagenics Cortico B5 B6 help Lower Homocysteine Levels and Reduce Cardiovascular Risk?

A very important function for B6 is the role it plays in helping to control the homocysteine levels of the body. Homocysteine is a much more important indicator than cholesterol in determining  cardiovascular risk.  High Homocysteine levels have been linked to an increase in thrombosis and cardiovascular disease.  Evidence shows that high Homocysteine levels actually degrade the arteries through the destruction of collagen, elastin within the arterial walls. B6, B12 and Folic Acid may help to keep homocysteine levels low.
