Vitamin B6 is important in maintaining relaxed muscles and avoiding conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. B6 is required for dream recall, a normal function of a healthy person. This product is crafted from 100% whole foods to help maintain healthy levels of homocysteine in the body. The formula is enriched by the inclusion of beet root, an excellent food source of the methyl donors, folate and betaine. Sufficient body stores of methyl donors ensure that homocysteine is converted back to the amino acid methionine. Elevated homocysteine levels are associated with fat accumulation and damage to various tissue and organ systems. In addition, the methylation factors including folate, vitamin B12 or betaine are helpful in promoting normal production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, and in the maintenance of the myelin sheath. This unique formula is a whole food vitamin/mineral complex.
Folic acid (folate) is a B vitamin that is important in the synthesis of nucleic acids. The metabolic role of folic acid is inter-dependant with that of vitamin B12 (both are required by rapidly dividing cells). Healthy doses of folate and B12 are required during pregnancy to ensure the baby is free of congenital malformations such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
