Interviewer: What are the benefits of P5P?
Dr. Stern: ZMA, which is zinc, magnesium and B6, has been shown to help someone get a deeper night's sleep and when you get a deeper night's sleep you repair better, your hormone production is more balanced and effective.
Testosterone production, growth hormone production becomes healthier, more vibrant.
So zinc, magnesium and B6 are critical for a healthy night's sleep and when I was making my sleep formula that nourished the adrenal glands and helps someone repair their body and get a deeper sleep, I had to have ZMA in my formula, including of course B6.
So, as I always say, if I'm going to put something in there, in my supplement, I want to make sure it's without a doubt the most bio-available, best form possible.
Most B6's, and if you look at any ZMA formula it's going to say pyridoxal 6 phosphate.
Every single one is going to say that, B6 pyridoxal 6 phosphate. Here's the problem - your body is going to absorb that, it's going to go to the liver and now it's going to cause the liver the need to use energy to split that to make pyridoxal 5 phosphate, because we're not getting B6 for B6.
We're getting B6 to split a phosphate off and then have pyridoxal 5 phosphate.
So we have the ability now in supplements to not give pyridoxal 6 phosphate or B6. We have the ability to give P5P, pyridoxal 5 phosphate.
So now it's more bio-available.
I save your liver the energy and the job to cut this phosphate off. It goes right into your system, it's active and it's ready to roll.
So I'm basically taking one of your bodies processes out of the equation, making it easier for you to use. Now, it's more expensive. It's more expensive for me to manufacture it, but it's worth it to give the person the best possible supplement they can take.
So, go look for every ZMA out there, you're not going to see any P5P other than my formula.
