  • Support reproductive health.
  • May help prevent birth defects.
  • Important nutrient in homocysteine reduction.
  • With vitamin C for better utilization.
  • Easy swallowing capsule.

This B vitamin is necesary for reducing homocysteine levels (a risk factor for heart attacks & strokes). It is also important for: pregnant women, the immune system, production of normal blood cells, & others.

Folic acid is a water-soluble member of the B complex.  It is also known as folate and folacin. This vitamin is needed for energy production, cell replication and the formation of red and white blood cells.  It plays an important role in the conversion of homocysteine into harmless substances.  Homocysteine damages the inner lining of arteries and high levels of homocysteine are correlated to an increased risk of atherosclerosis.  Folic acid is especially needed in areas where there is high cell turnover.  Therefore it is an essential component of normal fetal development, especially in the first trimester when most of the neural network is laid down.

It is commonly recommended by natural health care practitioners for a variety of different therapeutic applications including: cervical dysplasia, depression, anxiety, anemia and atherosclerosis.

Folic acid is depleted by oral contraceptives and many other types of medication.  Alcohol blocks the absorption of folic acid.  High doses of folic acid can also change the way your body uses certain medications.  Check with your health practitioner before taking large doses of folic acid.  Cooking or microwaving destroys folic acid.  Pregnant women should begin supplementation before they become pregnant because folic acid is most needed during the first six weeks of fetal life.  This is often when a woman does not know she is pregnant.

What are B Vitamins?

B vitamins are a complex of water-soluble vitamins. They are called "B Complex" because you do not find any one of them in a specific food or living tissue without the others being present. B vitamins complement each other. They are responsible mainly for the health and maintenance of nerves, eyes, digestion and skin, as well as the processing of carbohydrates, fat and protein, growth, the production of hormones and digestive enzymes, prevention of anaemia, maintenance of the sex glands, sebaceous glands and bone marrow.

Because of their solubility they cannot be stored in the body, so whatever is not utilized is rapidly excreted. However, a certain balance is advisable making a B Complex supplement ideal rather than taking large amounts of just one or two B vitamins. The B-complex vitamins are a group of similarly structured compounds, which is why they are referred to as a "Complex" vitamin. This complex of vitamins consists of B1 (thiamine HCL), B2 (riboflavin 5-phosphate and riboflavin HCL), B3 flush free (inositol hexanicotinate) and Niacinamide, B5 (D-pantothenic acid, calcium), B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate and pyridoxine HCL) and, B7 (biotin), B12 (cyanocobalamine), and folic acid.

B Vitamins & Stress

Many people today do not realize that stress and anxiety are often the result of acute deficiency of B vitamins. Combined with environmental toxins and daily routine, stress levels can be avoided with adequate supplementation of B vitamins. What the body does not use is eliminated in urine, which means a continuous supply is required. The key is to comprehend the role of B vitamins and the prevention of stress. A deficiency of B vitamins causes over-tiredness and anxiety that can increase stress levels. Complexes of B vitamins play essential roles and are responsible for producing energy for your body.

Why do I Need B Vitamins?

The Nutrition Almanac states that B vitamins "may be the single most important factor for maintenance of the nerves." B vitamins are essential for healthy skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver. Water-soluble B vitamins are not stored in the body and must be replenished daily. 

All of the B vitamins work together and are best used by the body in a B complex, which is why many B complex supplements include a small dose of riboflavin in them.  If additional supplementation of riboflavin is needed it should be taken in addition to a good B complex. Most B vitamins are water-soluble and any extra from large doses is flushed out of the body easily, therefore it's best to take lower dosages of the B complex several times a day than one larger dose.  Spray or sublingual forms of B vitamins are easily absorbed, as are capsules - if your digestion is healthy, then the tablet form is usually suitable for most people.
