Eat to Nourish: Vitamin B6

Updated: Mar 29

Why it matters to include Vitamin B6 in your diet.


Conventional fresh food supply chains take days even weeks to get fresh produce to you the customer. As a result, a lot of nutritional value is lost due to natural decaying processes and vitamins are especially volatile and you lose a lot of nutritional value very quickly. Spinach can lose up to 90% of its Vitamin C content in 24 hours.


Because Nourishing Hub is local to the community we sell our greens still growing and you harvest when you are ready to eat, you have no loss of nutrients.


Benefits

  • Vitamin B6 is important because it's involved in more than 100 enzyme reactions in the body's cells, helping us metabolize amino acids from our food and build new red blood cells.

  • The health benefits of vitamin B6 uncovered by clinical research include a reduction in heart disease risk

  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is vital for normal brain development and for keeping the immune system and nervous system working properly
