Vegetarian DHA with L-methylfolate, Methylcobalamin and Pyridoxal 5 phosphate.
DHA is touted as a natural remedy for a broad range of health problems and diseases including:
Heart disease: improving cardiovascular health
Tye 2 Diabetes
Asthma and allergies
DHA is also purported to prevent cancer, age related macular degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease.
DHA during pregnancy.
-DHA is associated with increased birth weight and gestational health.
-Helps and improve brain and cognitive development of the fetus.
-It helps support the development of central nervous system in the body.
-Supports the development and enhances a child’s eyesight.
L-Methylfolate: Folate, also known as Vitamin B, is one of the most essential vitamins.
L-methylfolate vs. folic acid:
Folic acid is the most commonly found and a synthetic form of vitamin B9. The body cannot metabolize Folic Acid readily. Folic acid first needs to undergo reduction and methylation in the liver before getting converted into a folic aco derivative known as tetrahydrafolate(THF).
This process requires a sufficient amount of the key enzyme Dihydofolate Reductase(DHFR), and because DHFR maintains a very little activity in the liver where metabolism occurs, the body can only convert a small amount of THF.
This results in varying and potentially harmful levels of unmetabolized folic acid circulating your system with nowhere to go. Several studies indicate that chronically elevated levels of un-metabolized folic acid may have adverse health effects.
-Increased cancer risk
-Undetected B12 deficiency
Any folic acid or folate we ingest must be converted into its active form (L-methylfolate) to be useful. However this becomes a problem if you cannot do this conversion effectively, such as those with an MTHFR mutation.
Any folic acid we ingest must be metabolised into Dihydrofolate, Tetrahydrofolate and then finally into L-methylfolate to be used in the body. Once in this form, only then can it be transported into cells, tissues and even cross the blood barrier.
Supplementation with L-methylfolate bypasses the entire folic acid metabolism cycle.
Benefits of L-methylfolate
- L-Methylfolate supplementation is beneficial in treating diabetic neuropathy.
- Boosts immune system
- Helps in depression.
Vitamin B12, also referred to as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin.
It contributes to the successful synthesis of DNA, the normal functioning of the nervous system, and the production of haemoglobin.
Cyanocobalamin, the most stable and unnatural form of vitamin B12, is most commonly used in supplements and does not have a direct cofactor role in cellular metabolism.
Methylcobalamin on the other hand is the most biologically available form of Vitamin B12.
Hence Methylcobalamin is the most preferred form of Vitamin B12.
Methylcobalamin: Methylcobalamin circulates through the bloodstream and is one of two naturally-occurring coenzyme forms of vitamin B12 that the body utilizes. The body needs B12 to convert homocysteine to methionine, protect DNA and RNA, support energy, protect nerve and brain cells, stimulate serotonin production, contribute to red blood cell formation, support immune function, and maintain a positive mood.
Other benefits of Methylcobalamin:
- It acts as an effective analgesic.
- Is good for the skin.
- Essential for the brain.
PYRIDOXAL 5 PHOPSHATE
Vitamin B6 is a collective term for several compounds that are very similar. Pyridoxine is the free form of vitamin B6.
Certain individuals may have difficulty making that conversion, and therefore may need to take vitamin B6 in its already active form: P5P.
Benefits of P5P:
Boosts Immune System
Helps Support Positive Mood & Relaxation.
Necessary for Optimal Brain & Nervous System Health
Helps You Sleep and Normalizes Sleep-Wake Cycles
Helps Balance Blood Sugar.
Important For Skin Health.
