An important study finds that carbidopa, a standard Parkinson’s drug, “irreversibly binds to and permanently deactivates” pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (P5P), a key form of vitamin B6 in the body.

Virtually every major system of the body is impacted directly or indirectly by [it].”
Vitamin B12 is one of the most essential, yet overlooked vitamins in the world. It plays a major role in the metabolism of each of our body cells, and if we have insufficient amounts of it for a longer period, it can lead to long-term diseases and neurological conditions.

Although it’s talked about less, hair loss affects women as well; about 40% of people who experience hair loss are women.

Numerous double-blind studies,1, 2 have shown that the amino acid 5-hydroxytryptophan (“5-HTP”) is highly effective in easing anxiety and depression. However, over the past decade or so, more and more studies are coming out that show 5-HTP may be a valuable weight loss tool as well.
