Vitamin B6 Price Trend

Because of the expanding elderly population and knowledge about good eating habits and supplementation, North America held the highest share of the Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) Market in 2021, up to 38%. In addition, the presence of large firms in this region aided market expansion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 659,000 Americans die each year from cardiovascular disease, accounting for one out of every four fatalities.

Homocysteine is an amino acid found in the blood that has been related to heart disease, dementia, stroke, and osteoporosis. Folate, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 are the most critical nutrients for lowering homocysteine levels. According to an online study of more than 2000 American adults done by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Osteopathic Association, more than 86% of Americans take vitamins or supplements. This can be related to a greater understanding of vitamins and their overall health impacts. As a result, in 2021, this area controlled the vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) market.
