Vitamin B6 reduces blood estrogen and increases progesterone. Therefore, B6 deficiency will cause decreased liver metabolism of estrogen, causing an excess of estrogen, this results in “estrogen dominance.”
Estrogen imbalance effects mood swings by increasing the activity of the biogenic amines, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, which affect moods. Epinephrine triggers anxiety. Norepinephrine causes hostility and irritability. Serotonin at high levels creates nervous tension, and inability to concentrate.
Dopamine, produced by the brain, balances out the effects of the biogenic amines by inducing relaxation, increases mental alertness, and works to prevent sodium and water retention.
Without sufficient dopamine, the biogenic amines are not held in check, moods are greatly affected in a negative manner, and sodium and water retention increase.
Estrogen also increases the level of the adrenal hormone aldosterone, which prevents the normal excretion of salt from the kidneys, adding to fluid retention. This creates edema-like symptoms of bloating, abdominal swelling, and swollen breasts.
Excess fluid swells the nerve tissue and membranes surrounding the brain. The brain is encased within the skull, and can only expand as far as the skull permits. This leads to torturous migraine headaches that are often described as “vise-like.”
Magnesium deficiency causes a very specific depletion of brain dopamine and B6 plays a synergistic role in mineral utilization across cell membranes, increasing the effectiveness of magnesium.
American women are so deficient in vitamin B6 that it was discovered back in the early 1940’s. The process of refining flour eliminates the B vitamins altogether, B6 is destroyed in cooking and canning, and when foods are packaged. Pregnancy and birth-control pills also cause a B6 deficiency.
To prevent “estrogen dominance” and its negative influence on moods and fluid retention, increased intake of B vitamins and magnesium is absolutely essential.
The minimum recommended dosage of Ultravite™ provides the woman with the necessary blood levels to prevent B6 deficiency. Women with severe B6 deficiency, which may be as high as 70% of all women, need only increase their daily dosage of Ultravite™.
