    Had the idea to have everyone post their amino acid lab results if they got one. I compared the results with the interpretation guide from Metametrix here. http://www.metametrix.com/files/test-menu/interpretive-guides/amino-acids-ig.pdf
    Basically the highs and lows seen here indicate a need for B6. I do not think my body is capable of converting b6 to P5P based on the lab result and link I posted above. I find beta alanine and p5p to be great supplements since I am deficient in histidine which is one thing beta alanine turns into along with carnosine (to my knowledge). ​

    Hi, xks.

    Note that B2 is needed to convert B6 to P5P, so low activity of P5P could be due to low B6 or to low B2.

    Best regards,

    Rich
