Vit B6 plays a role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, the production of neurotransmitters and the synthesis of nicotinic acid. Moreover, it participates in many transamination (amine molecule transfer from one molecule to another), decarboxylation (removal of carboxy molecule from a compound) , synthesis of some molecules like porphyrins, neurotransmitters glycogen catabolism and amino acid transsulfuration(transfer of a sulphate molecule from one amino acid to another). Because of its related functions, it plays an important role in brain function, metabolism of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates as the cofactor(functional group) of many enzymes.
