What Are Pyritinol HCL Capsules?
First created in 1961, Pyritinol HCL is a water-soluble analogue of vitamin B6. It is created by joining two vitamin B6 molecules with a disulfide bridge, which is comprised of two sulfur atoms. Pyritinol benefits are related to those of vitamin B6, which is an important micronutrient for healthy brain function. Pyritinol is generally used as a nootropic compound to aid in concentration, speed of thought and function, and as a mood booster.
Pyritinol Uses and Benefits
While people buy Pyritinol as a nootropic compound in the U.S., it has been used in other countries around the world since the 1970s.
Pyritinol is known anecdotally for its ability to improve cognitive function in the areas of focus, concentration, memory, and mood. Pyritinol benefits are likely due to its relation to vitamin B6, which is also derived from food sources including sunflower seeds, salmon, tuna, chicken, bananas, avocados, cooked spinach, and others. This nutrient aids in the production of important neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, glutamate. Dopamine especially is important in mood regulation.
Pyritinol may also increase uptake of choline to neurons and positively affects acetylcholine levels, which is a neurotransmitter essential to learning, reasoning, and memory. This also can increase mental clarity, visual processing, and reaction time.
Anecdotally, Pyritinol has helped some to reduce the symptoms of hangover. Its ability to repair damaged neurons also aids in maintaining brain cell health.
