Folic Acid, also known as vitamin B9, is needed for the proper development of the body. It is a key factor in producing the genetic material DNA and in numerous other bodily functions. Folic acid, along with vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, also helps reduce levels of homocysteine, an amino acid derivative that can be harmful to the cardiovascular and neurological system when present in excess. In addition, women who consume healthful diets with adequate folic acid may reduce their risk of delivering a baby with birth defects of the brain or spinal cord.
Vitamin B12 is necessary for DNA synthesis, red blood cell development, and immune function; as well as, nerve function, and the production of neurotransmitters. Vitamin B12 also plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism. Vitamin B12, along with folic acid and vitamin B6, supports the regulation of homocysteine levels, which benefits cardiovascular health.
As water-soluble nutrients, the body does not store folic acid or vitamin B12 so they must be consumed daily through the diet or supplementation to assure adequate amounts are available for optimal health.
Bronson’s Folic Acid + Vitamin B12 is a vegetarian supplement that provides 800 mcg of folic acid and 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 per daily dose. Together, these nutrients help support cardiovascular health, a healthy nervous system, healthy brain function, and energy production.*
