Vitafolic™ is a food supplement that contains Folic Acid as the active ingredient.
Folic acid is a kind of B vitamin folate and is crucial in contributing to the healthy growth and development of the body. It also helps in the body’s production of red blood cells. While it can be found in some foods, in order to get the correct amount and reap the full benefits it is best to take it as a daily supplement.
What Does Folic Acid Do for Your Body?
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL AMINO ACID SYNTHESIS.
There are five major amino acids that need folic acid in order to be properly metabolised in the body.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL BLOOD FORMATION.
It is essential for forming a part of red blood cells that contains iron, and therefore it is needed for optimal bodily function. When our intake of folic acid is too low, our blood does not contain enough iron and we become fatigued easily, making daily activities difficult.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL HOMOCYSTEINE METABOLISM.
Which is an essential amino acid needed for normal bodily function.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTION.
Helps with normal psychological function, helping to prevent many issues relating to ageing, depression and dementia. Studies have found that those who have folate deficiencies also struggled disproportionately with depressive episodes, cognitive decline and further issues in those in ageing and epileptic populations.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Aids in the normal function of the immune system. Those without enough folic acid intake were found to have far lower immune responses and therefore were far more susceptible to becoming unwell.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE REDUCTION OF TIREDNESS AND FATIGUE.
Since folic acid helps contribute towards the production of healthy red blood cells, when the body doesn’t have enough it causes the red blood cells to have limited function. In some cases, blood cells are produced which are too large, and this can result in folate related anaemia, in turn causing tiredness and fatigue. Healthy amounts of folic acid prevent this from happening.
CONTRIBUTES TO MATERNAL TISSUE GROWTH DURING PREGNANCY.
It is even more important to take folic acid during pregnancy to help with the baby’s normal growth and development. Taking it as a supplement can help to prevent birth defects such as spina bifida and lead to generally better health for the baby after birth.
