Folic acid and Vitamin B-12 are water-soluble nutrients that are not stored in the body but get excreted via the urine when there is more than is needed. Because the body does not make them, we have to get them from diet and/or supplements.
It is important to get the right amounts of both of these nutrients since an imbalance can lead to nerve damage and increase dangerous homocysteine levels. Vitamin B-12 and folic acid are both necessary to make red blood cells, enhance iron utilization and produce S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), a compound involved in immune function and mood.
Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) is particularly important vitamin for healthy nerve cells and the production of DNA and RNA that form genes. Mild Vitamin B12 deficiency is not uncommon in older people who may eat poorly or have less stomach acid, which is required for absorption of B-12. Others at risk for Vitamin B-12 deficiency are vegans, people with malabsorption or eating disorders, people with H. pylori and those who have had weight loss surgery. Low levels of B-12 can cause a range of symptoms including fatigue, shortness of breath, diarrhea, nervousness, numbness or tingling sensation in the fingers and toes. Severe deficiency of B-12 causes nerve damage.
Folic acid contributes to normal nerve and brain function and can help to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. It may also help slow age-related memory decline. Folic acid is needed for normal growth and development and is especially important for development of fetal nervous systems and for placental growth. Women of childbearing age should be sure to get adequate folic acid because it helps to prevent neural tube birth defects.
Foliplex with B-12 is a high-potency formula in a delicious, fast-absorbing raspberry flavor chewable tablet.
