• Foundational nutrition
• Heart health
What Is It?
High doses and biologically active forms of two important foundational nutrients required for many different functions in the body.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: B12 and Folic Acid are nutrients required by the body to assist in methylation reactions which recycle and reduce homocysteine. Homocysteine is a toxic amino acid created by the body and a major risk factor for cardiovascular, neurological and bone disorders. Homocysteine levels tend to increase with age and with the accumulation of unhealthy lifestyle factors. The body naturally recycles homocysteine to prevent buildup, but, inadequate stores of vitamin B12 and folic acid hinder this process. Reducing homocysteine levels is imperative for optimal health.
Secondary Uses: Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid are essential for proper red blood cell formation, neurological health and DNA synthesis. They also have an important role in anemia and fetal development.
Who Should Take It?
Individuals who have a family history of heart conditions or those who want to prevent cardiovascular and neurological disorders would benefit from B12 + Folic Acid. Vegans are often at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency and should consider supplementing with a high quality supplement. All women of child bearing age are encouraged to supplement with folic acid to prevent neural tube defects and reduce the risk of certain types of anemia.
Take 1 capsule daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
