WHAT REDEFINED VITAMINS® SAYS ABOUT Mega B12 Folic:
Support for Healthy Nervous System Function and Cardiovascular Health
Mega B12 Folic is a unique formula that contains bioactive, patented forms of vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) and vitamin B9/folic acid (as BioFolate®) for supporting cardiovascular and nervous system function. BioFolate® is a new generation of folic acid that is in a reduced and methylated form, thereby bypassing the need for enzymes to convert the vitamin to a biologically-active state.
B vitamins have ubiquitous actions in the body and are involved in practically every metabolic reaction in cells. They are key for many of physiological processes such as proper formation of neurotransmitters, energy production, cellular respiration, and maintaining healthy DNA.
How Mega B12 Folic Works:
Folic acid is vital for nearly every physiological reaction in the body that involves a one-carbon transfer. Unfortunately, folic acid found in food and many dietary supplements needs to go through several enzymatic conversions to be converted to its bioactive form called L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).
BioFolate® found in Mega B12 Folic contains 5-MTHF for supporting normal folate status, regardless of whether you lack the necessary enzymes to properly utilize folic acid. Folic acid works in conjunction with vitamin B12 to promote healthy DNA, as well as synthesize hemoglobin—a protein found in red blood cells that transports oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Vitamin B12/cobalamin is the most chemically complex of all vitamins and plays a key role throughout the nervous system. Along with folic acid, vitamin B12 works to create DNA and is involved in metabolism of all the amino acids synthesized in the body.
Deficiencies of vitamin B12 can lead to serious, irreversible health consequences such as damage to the brain and nervous system and/or pernicious anemia (lack of red blood cell production).
Furthermore, vitamin B12 is needed for the body to convert homocysteine to methionine; methionine is necessary to form S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe), which is involved in the synthesis of catecholamines and various neurotransmitters. In this sense, vitamin B12 is integral to supporting mood and cognition—via SAMe—as deficiencies can lead to depression and high levels of anxiety.
To summarize, the most pertinent research-backed benefits of supplementation with Mega B12 Folic may include:
- Support cardiovascular function and energy production
- Support cognitive function and healthy mood
- Help support and maintain DNA
- Help metabolize amino acids
