Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine. It is one of the 8 water-soluble B vitamins. In order for vitamins to be utilized by the body they must first be converted to P-5-P (Pyridoxal - 5 - Phosphate). After Piridoxine is absorbed it is transported to the hepatic (liver) cells where it is converted to P5P by a B2 dependent enzyme. P5P either remains in the liver cell bound to a protein (Apoenzyme) or released into the blood where it is bound to an albumin.
