Every food you eat performs different functions in your body. Some foods supply energy‚ others mostly build muscle‚ and still others repair tissues. To enhance your immune system and support your tissues‚ you should have a diet rich in vitamins like folate (also known as vitamin B9 and folic acid) and vitamin B12‚ which work together. These vitamins are also essential to forming nerves and red blood cells‚ as well as metabolizing protein for energy production within the body. You can get both vitamins from foods like fish‚ oysters‚ chicken‚ clams‚ leafy vegetables‚ fruits‚ beans‚ and mushrooms. However‚ folate is water-soluble and is easily excreted in your urine. Because of this‚ it's vital that you have an adequate amount each day.
Deficiencies in either nutrient can result in anemia‚ fatigue‚ memory loss‚ and compromised immunity. Taking a supplement that contains folic acid and vitamin B12‚ like Folate 5-Plus with B12 by Biotics Research‚ can work to support overall health. Each tablet also provides antioxidant enzymes like catalase.
Folate 5-Plus with B12 includes the following ingredients:
- Folic acid: Enhances conversion of homocysteine—a toxic amino acid that may harden arteries—into the harmless cysteine. Also supports the replication process of DNA and RNA.
- Vitamin B12: Can help increase alertness; enhance development of the nerves' white-sheath; and aid in genetic material synthesis.
- Superoxide dismutase: An enzyme that supports lung and skin health while relieving some musculoskeletal inflammation and rebuilding tissues.
- Catalase: An antioxidant enzyme that supplies cells with oxygen from hydrogen peroxide‚ works to prevent DNA damage‚ and may slow down the appearance of visible signs of aging.
This 120-tablet bottle of Biotics Research’s Folate 5-Plus with B12 will last you for about four months when taken at the recommended dosage of one tablet daily.
