High-potency capsules providing a full 1,000 mcg of folic acid, vital to a healthy pregnancy and to cardiovascular health by reducing homocysteine levels.
Folic acid (vitamin B9) is an essential nutrient that helps the body produce new cells and helps protect DNA from damage, therefore it is critical during pregnancy when the foetus is going through a period of explosive growth of new cells. It also helps to decrease and normalize the homocysteine levels in our body. Increased homocysteine levels are associated with the build-up of plaques in the artery walls (atherosclerosis), which can lead to heart disease or stroke. Folic acid deficiency is linked to complications in pregnancies, neurological disorders, and osteoporosis. Adequate folic acid levels are also associated with a reduced risk of developing certain cancers.
