Folic Acid 800mcg with Vitamin B-12 Folic Acid 800mcg with Vitamin B-12

Now Foods Folic Acid is a preparation based on folic acid, enriched with vitamin B12. It contains 800 mcg of folic acid, which corresponds to a double dose of the average daily requirement for this ingredient. Thanks to this, if taken regularly, helps to keep our body in good condition, also increases efficiency and improves digestion.

Folic acid, also known as vitamin B9, is a water-soluble compound that is an artificially obtained substitute of folate present in natural food. Folic acid was first isolated in the 1940s, it was obtained from spinach leaves, which is the richest natural source of folate.

Folate occurs in many chemical forms in nature. There are about 20 kinds of this substance in natural sources, but theoretically it has been shown that it is possible to synthesize about 150 different chemical compounds that remain folic acid.

It can be found in various types of leafy vegetables. In the largest amounts, it is found in lettuce, cabbage or cauliflower, but we can also find it in beans, peas and lentils. So if our diet is poor in vegetables, the body probably needs support in the form of folic acid supplementation.

Influence of folic acid on human body
The main role of folic acid or folate in the human body is the participation in the synthesis of nucleic acids from which DNA is produced, and thus - the regulation of the growth and exploitation of all body-building cells, with particular attention to nerve cells. Thanks to this, the correct concentration of folic acid in the body contributes to the improvement of well-being and triggers the feeling of energy flow, not related to the calories consumed with meals.

Together with other B vitamins, it also helps to reduce the level of homocysteine, which is an amino acid posing a threat to the body if its concentration is too high. It disturbs the physiological processes of cells - especially those present in the tissues that are in the accelerated development stage. It has also been proven that the high level of this amino acid most often accompanies myocardial infarction, stroke and thrombosis, all because it favours the formation of the so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol. In combination with impaired blood vessels is a serious threat to our health and even life.

In addition, homocysteine significantly hinders the synthesis of serotonin, otherwise known as the hormone of happiness, which worsens our mood. Studies on people suffering from depression have shown that as many as 40% of them have folic acid deficiencies. Some of the respondents also had cognitive impairment. Therefore, shortages in the supply of folic acid in the body make it difficult to learn new things, as well as recalling those already known.

In addition to beneficial effects on the nervous system, folic acid is involved in regulating the amount and quality of gastric juices, improves the liver and bowel function. Thanks to this, it facilitates the digestion of food, which also contributes to the increase of energy levels, as well as a feeling of lightness in the stomach.

Important dietary supplement for pregnant women
Folic acid is especially recommended for pregnant women, because it allows the child to develop properly and also prevents damage to the neural tube. Such damage is the cause of several lethal birth defects that do not give a child a chance to survive or cause permanent, very serious dysfunctions. These defects include anencephaly, encephalocele and spina bifida. Numerous studies conducted in many centers around the world have shown that giving women folic acid from the moment of getting pregnant to the end of the first trimester, reduced the incidence of these defects by 42% up to 79%. For the prevention of neural tube defects in the fetus, it is recommended to take at least 0.4 mg of folic acid daily, for a period of at least one month before planned fertilization, up to the 12th week of pregnancy.

Also in newborns, in the phase of very intensive growth, folic acid is indispensable in the process of cell multiplication. Its deficiency at this time may result in impaired development and decreased brain performance.

However, not only future mothers have to care for the right level of folic acid in their body, because thanks to its presence, the cells of genetic material transmit many hereditary characteristics to the new organism. This means that men who care for the high levels of folic acid in their body can expect their children to be similar to them.

Supporting the production of red blood cells
Another important advantage of folic acid is that it supports the process of creating red blood cells, thanks to which it can prevent the onset of anemia. The researchers also found that it is likely to significantly reduce the risk of cancer - above all the cervical cancer.

Deficiency of folic acid interfere with the above-mentioned functions, it inhibits the formation of cells that build the body, reduces the number of red blood cells in the blood, and so the greater problems with oxygenation, feelings of chronic fatigue, memory problems, distractions, and sometimes also anxiety and depression appear. Too low concentration of folic acid in the body also hinders the absorption of nutrients and reduces appetite. Too much supply of this ingredient, in turn, results in allergic reactions or insomnia and irritability, and increases the risk of asthma in the fetus. Excessive intake of the synthetic form of folic acid may result in the accelerated development of cancer cells.

Vitamin B12 is one of the factors that increase the intensity of folate absorption and is therefore the second component of the preparation.

Vitamin B12 is also a water-soluble substance that affects the formation of red blood cells. Together with folic acid, it regulates the process of their multiplication, reducing anemia and the risk of its occurance . Although it is produced in the human body, thanks to the symbiotic relationship with the bacteria of the digestive system, it happens only in the large intestine, in which the absorption of vitamins no longer exists. Therefore, all of the vitamin B12 produced in the body is removed from it along with the faeces, and the necessary quantities must be delivered in the diet.

In conclusion, Now Foods Folic Acid is a dietary supplement of great importance to our health, because almost everyone today suffers from folic acid deficiency, without realizing it until they experience very serious effects of such deficiencies, such as stroke or depression. We live under the stress, smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, coffee, and use contraceptives. Each of these factors deprives us of supplies of folic acid, and we lack the time to ensure the proper nutrition.

The preparation is recommended especially for people whose diet is poor in leafy vegetables and legumes. Pregnant women should be most interested in it because it is an extremely important factor for the sustainable development of the fetus.

Folic acid

Information

Folic acid - also known as vitamin B9, is a synthetic form of naturally occurring folates. It needs to be transformed to folates in order to be biologically active also in the human organism. Therefore, its supplementation is recommended to people who do not have problems with methylation processes.

The majority of people associate folic acid with the period of pregnancy. It is definitely a justified association. Proper supply of vitamin B9 conditions correct development of the fetus and prevents disorders of neural tube defects in a baby.

Supplementation with folic acid also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system of adults. Some sources say that it is conducive to maintaining beneficial emotional states. Moreover, folic acid takes part in the process of erythropoiesis, thanks to which it enables efficient production of red cells.

Supplementation with folic acid should be also considered by men who deal with low sperm quality. It was proven that complementing the level of vitamin B9 is conducive to increasing reproductive abilities of men.

Cyanocobalamin

Information

What is cyanocobalamin?

Cyanocobalamin is a basic, the most commonly met form of vitamin B12 in vitamin B complexes and multivitamins available on the market.

Vitamin B12 is the most known for its influence on neurology. It takes part in building and regenerating myelin sheaths of neurons, thanks to which it contributes to the protection of the nervous system against damages. Because of the ability to increase the level of S-Adenosyl methionine, vitamin B12 may contribute to more efficient synthesis of many neurotransmitters, thanks to which it positively influences well-being and psychical condition.

This vitamin is also engaged in the process of blood production and its deficiencies contribute to the creation of megaloblastic anemia. Its deficits may also concern vegetarians and vegans, elderly people, people with absorption disorders and those using drugs neutralizing gastric acid.

Cyanocobalamin is included in the composition of many complex vitamin supplements that may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
