Dietary supplemental vitamin B6 increases carnosine and anserine concentrations in the heart of rats.


PMID 26101732

Abstract

This study was performed to examine the effect of dietary level of vitamin B6 on the concentrations of carnosine and anserine, antioxidants, in the heart of rats. Analysis using UPLC-MS/MS showed that the concentrations of these dipeptides in the 7 and 35xa0mg pyridoxine HCl/kg groups were significantly higher than those in the 1xa0mg pyridoxine HCl/kg group, implying the novel role of dietary vitamin B6 as a determinant of the dipeptides favorable for heart.
