Folic Acid makes the difference

Folic Acid makes the difference

As June rolls on and summer officially begins, we continue to have Blood Health on the mind.

We have been talking a lot about healthy red blood cells all month and highlighting ingredients in Celi•VItes for Balanced Blood Health. Our formulas are put together with care and our ingredients are the highest quality.

When targeting a solution for iron and other blood deficiencies, we made sure to include Folic Acid in our Celi•Vites for Balanced Blood Health.

Known for being associated with pregnancy, folate is key to supporting healthy fetal development and during lactation, it supports the developing infant. It also regulates homocysteine, an amino acid that in high levels can be associated with atherosclerosis, increased risk of heart attacks, stroke and blood clot formation.

Our form of Folic Acid in Blood Health is 5-MTHF, the coenzyme form. In fact, due to genetic variation, some people cannot covert folic acid into 5-MTHF. This form bypasses the necessity of metabolism by the body, making it easy for everyone to process.

It’s not the bioavailability, it’s also about the effectiveness. In a clinical study with 144 women, the change in plasma and red blood cell folate concentration over time was greater when administered 5-MTHF than folic acid.

5-MTHF, a superior ingredient, makes Celi•Vites for Balanced Blood Health different.

    Thank you for stating not everyone can process folic acid. It should be said that folic acid is down right dangerous for a lot of people. I was nearly bed ridden for more than a year because I was prescribed a high dose of folic acid.
    Folic acid is NOT folate. It is man made and unnatural. For many it is toxic and causes cancer because it stops the body from creating NK (natural killer cells, natural CANCER killing cells). THAT is a huge problem. It also cause emotional problems like bipolar, schizophrenia etc. because it stops the body from properly making neurotransmitters since folate is essential in this process. I wish more people understood the MTHFR mutation and were tested. The mandated fortification with folic acid has been quite detrimental to my health and causes a lot of struggle with avoiding it.
