Ingredient Overview: Folic Acid Posted on May 01, 2016 by , 0 comments
Our weekly blog series continues, highlighting the important and unique synergistic ingredients found in AltoViva™ for Heart Health. This week, we’re looking at Folic Acid.
Folic acid and folate, both forms of B9, are water-soluble B vitamins essential to multiple processes throughout the body. “Water-soluble” means that our bodies flush out excess folic acid through the kidneys. While folate does occur naturally in a variety of foods, many people choose to supplement with the synthetic form, folic acid.
Folic acid supplements can help support circulatory, cardiovascular, kidney, cognitive, and digestive health. This B vitamin is also commonly known as an essential supplement for pregnant women to help support the healthy development of the fetus.*
For those with cardio health goals, folic acid is valuable for its ability to help maintain healthy homocysteine levels, which complements the effects of vitamin B6 in our Heart Health formula. Some preliminary research has also found that folic acid may be more closely associated with healthy homocysteine levels than B12.*
B vitamins are powerful nutrients in the heart health category. But this isn’t the only nutrient class that benefits the heart. Far too often, people supplement with the latest “trendy” nutrient for heart health, to the neglect of all the other nutrients and botanicals that may be valuable for their cardiovascular systems.*
The AltoViva™ for Heart Health formula addresses this issue head on, providing a balanced selection of cardio nutrients, which concurrently promote arterial health, healthy heart muscle function, balanced metabolism of dietary fats, and healthy blood pressure, among many other cardio health effects.*
