Benefits of Folic Acid

Supporting healthy reproduction, pregnancy, cell formation & cardiovascular functions

Folic acid, also known as Folate, is the general term for a large family of compounds that fall within the Vitamin B group. Folic Acid is the most stable form of these compounds and the one characteristically used in supplements and food fortification. We obtain most of our Folic Acid from green leafy vegetables, nuts, legumes and animal proteins in our diets. Animal proteins provide a free form of this essential nutrient. Folic Acid from plant food sources are not found in free form and therefore it is much more difficult to obtain folic acid from a plant-based diet.

Folic Acid is important for healthy red blood cell formation, healthy cell turnover and the health of our genetic material. Research indicates that Folic Acid supplementation may support a healthy pregnancy and healthy cell formation in the developing foetus. It may also support healthy cardiovascular function and healthy male and female reproductive functions.

Studies on the effects of folic acid supplementation on cardiovascular health have shown that is may be effective in supporting healthy homocysteine levels and healthy blood vessel function. Studies in other areas of cardiovascular health such as maintaining healthy blood pressure, have yielded mixed results.

What quality means to us

1.We start with the science.

The first marker of quality is effectiveness. That’s why we follow an evidence-based approach to nutrition. Unless there is scientific research supporting a nutrient it won’t be included in our recommendations. Research is also clearly categorised as mixed, emerging, strong, very strong or traditionally used remedies.

2.We know our place.

Usually the best way to get the best nutrients is in food. Real food. So we will never advocate vitamins or minerals as a replacement to a balanced diet. Where they have a key role is when, for whatever reason, your daily diet is not delivering what you need.

3.We're transparent.

Nutrition can be very confusing, with many voices & opinions. A quality outcome is about being able to make informed decisions. That’s why you can drill down on each nutrient to find out exactly why it has been recommended, its form, its bio-availability, dose & detailed ingredients.

4.We are multi-source.

You’ll find that our range changes. If the research indicates that the best form of nutrient comes via a particular extraction process or from a new part of the world then that is where we will seek to source those nutrients. As new research or technology emerges we constantly refine which nutrients sit at the heart of each personalised recommendation.
