Were you looking for information about Pyridoxine? Pyridoxin is a common misspelling of pyridoxine.
 
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a water-soluble vitamin that may have antioxidant properties. It also plays a role in helping enzymes function properly and forming hemoglobin, an important part of red blood cells. Low levels of pyridoxine could lead to anemia and may increase levels of homocysteine (an amino acid that can cause problems such as cardiovascular disease or blood clots). Before starting this supplement, you should talk to your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, have had a coronary stent, or have any allergies.
