Vitamine B6, fatigue et dérèglements hormonaux : et s'il suffisait d'une cure ? - MyPureSkin

Vitamin B6, fatigue and hormonal imbalances: what if a cure was enough?

Although we all feel free, it is clear that we remain subject to our emotions in many situations. Whose fault is it ?

Some experts are increasingly pointing the finger at our endocrine system.

Disturbed during the advent of menopause (for women) and andropause (for men), its cycles, called “hormonal”, are of capital importance for our health and yet still unsuspected by many of us.

From their impact on the decisions we make on a daily basis to the effectiveness of our immune system, including the biology of aging, our hormones seem determined to “give the LA”.

This is why the hypothalamus (one of the main organs of the hormonal system) is said to be one of the “conductors” of the human body.

This is, among other things, why it is essential to take care of it and avoid disruptions as much as possible.

To achieve this, limiting exposure to endocrine disruptors is important, but maintaining proper functioning also requires a proactive attitude, through appropriate nutrition.

In this regard, certain nutrients prove to be more effective than others, particularly in the context of the senescence process.

For vitamin B6 in this case, which is said to be very useful in combating episodes of “abnormal” fatigue, we can measure its usefulness by its growing popularity in supplements. foods that contain it.

Why does vitamin B6 seem so suitable for anti-aging nutrition? What is its role in the endocrine system? How to optimize the benefits?

The MyPureSkin team helps you understand menopause a little better by exploring its mechanisms and preventing the most notable inconveniences.

Hormones, age and fatigue

For many of us, it is unfortunately only from the age of fifty that we feel the importance that our hormonal system may have had throughout life.

This awareness is generally the result of the appearance of a series of “symptoms”, including:

  • Greater difficulty maintaining weight control;
  • Difficulty maintaining a level of sleep of sufficient quantity and quality to maintain cellular metabolism;
  • Difficulty controlling the consistency of one's body temperature and the sensations associated with it (vasomotor disorders such as “hot flashes” (more or less intense and temporary) and which tend to become more pronounced over time in the first years after menopause);
  • Difficulty maintaining a healthy level of psychoactivity (occasional development of anxiety disorders).

In the midst of these multiple problems, the level of vitality can only be undermined, which explains, for some of us, the chronic fatigue directly linked to the onset of menopause.

Menopause itself being linked to the gradual slowing down then almost complete cessation of estrogen production by the ovaries, it remains possible to consider hormonal treatment but this is not without risks (in fact we now know (now that the use of estrogen treatment increases the probability of endometrial cancer or even breast cancer).

Vitamin B6 in question

Unlike THM (Hormonal Treatments for Menopause), the results obtained by holistic and preventive approaches integrating vitamin supplementation do not present such dangers, as shown by a study published in 2016 at the initiative of Sui-Liang Zhang and colleagues (1).

It is also thanks to more in-depth research on the roles of vitamin B complexes, such as those published in 2018 by Pawel Milart's team (2), that it was possible to collect, compile and put into practice perspective the results of research targeting the usefulness of vitamins.

The following conclusion emerges from Milart's meta-analysis: too low a concentration level of B group vitamins (notably B6) in the body can lead, among other things, to:

  • Bone demineralization (which, when it becomes critical, leads to the appearance of osteoporosis);
  • An increased risk of dementia;
  • An increase in the likelihood of developing cardiovascular diseases.

In other words, a sufficient concentration of vitamin B6 is simply vital in the aging process.

Unfortunately, this same process gradually takes away our ability to properly extract nutrients from our food.

Bioavailability and absorption capacity: when environment and age get involved

The ability to absorb nutrients is one of the most important skills of the digestive system. Unfortunately, with age the mechanisms on which it depends tend to be less and less effective.

In other words: we extract less and less well from elements such as minerals and vitamins, in particular vitamin B6, as we age.

This is a major problem that the scientific community is actively addressing in order to extend life expectancy and maintain sufficient quality for as long as possible, synonymous with autonomy.

It is therefore in the light of the results of studies such as that published by Ida K. Kjeldby's team in 2013 (3) that it becomes possible to glimpse the solutions offered by nutricosmetics.

As the study in question reveals, dietary supplementation of vitamin B6 makes it possible to alleviate the problems of malnutrition experienced by seniors, the combined consequence of a drop in absorption capacity and low bioavailability of nutrients provided by a contemporary diet often poorly adapted.

Dietary supplementation: a preventive practice that is becoming more popular

It is, generally speaking, to prevent and limit the speed at which diseases linked to malnutrition and aging set in, that anti-aging nutricosmetics today offers increasingly varied solutions.

However, not all are equal.

To understand this, it is first necessary to look at how vitamin B6 interacts with other active ingredients.

Vitamin B6… and the others: a ballet of synergistic reactions

Participating in a wide variety of enzymatic reactions, vitamin B6 intervenes, among other things, in the metabolism of thyroid cells but also contributes to producing heme (a constituent of hemoglobin, that is to say what makes up the red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body to nourish the organs).

These examples provide insight into the vital nature of vitamin B6 and the diversity of its implications.

Although it is no longer necessary to demonstrate that its consumption as a supplement is desirable (or even necessary in certain situations without consumers knowing it), the scientific community has sought the most relevant combinations through studies focused on aspects individuals.

It is therefore towards associations of vitamins from the B complex that efforts are tending more and more, given that we now know the capacity of vitamins B6 and B12, among others, to work together to give substance to the maxim : “The whole is more than the sum of the parts”.

MyCollagenGlow: what if age was told to you in a more vivid way?

If the feeling of chronic fatigue has become one of the plagues of the 21st century, it is not only because of the overstimulation offered by screens and other sources of disruption to sleep cycles.

Meeting nutritional needs is and remains one of the main pillars of a healthy body, regardless of what stage of the aging process it is at.

It is therefore at the crossroads of nutrition and anti-aging expertise that the know-how of MyPureSkin finds expression, through a nutricosmetic solution whose formula takes advantage of the benefits of vitamin B6 to which is associated a batch of active ingredients working in synergy.

Known as “MyCollagenGlow”, this food supplement aims to support your senescence process to allow your skin to radiate health and, therefore, shine as much as possible with its quality.

Contributing to maintaining “normal” epidermal quality over time, MyCollagenGlow contains:

  • Biotin (vitamin B8), whose concomitant action with that of other active ingredients stimulates the production of keratin by your body and increases the growth rate of hair follicles
  • Zinc whose role in maintaining the quality of your hair has been highlighted by numerous studies;
  • A complex of vitamins B5, B6 and B12 whose synergistic integration with biotin significantly increases the results that vitamin B8 alone can offer;
  • Marine collagen peptides with very high bioavailability;
  • Galacto-oligosaccharides, one of the key roles of which is the maintenance of a key element of your immune system: your intestinal flora (much more important than we think in the maintenance of the scalp);
  • Hyaluronic acid whose colossal storage capacity allows it to carry nearly 1000 times its weight in water (in order to guarantee your body excellent hydration);
  • Vitamin E whose anti-oxidant action helps protect your cells from oxidative stress (and therefore premature aging);
  • Beta-carotene, precursor of vitamin A, whose benefits extend from the ability to maintain clear vision to the preservation of cognitive functions and, of course, the quality of the scalp (by helping to preserve your cells from oxidative stress).
