How to get rid of unmetabolized folic acid?

Posted: June 26 2020 in latest-posts

  Folate or folic acid is referred to as vitamin B9, a key cofactor in one-carbon metabolism. Folate is the common terminology used for a group of molecules including folic acid, folinic acid or 5-formyltetrahydrofolate (5-FTHF), 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) or L-methylfolate, 10-formyl-tetrahydrofolate (10-formyl-THF), 5,10-methylene-THF and unsubstituted tetrahydrofolate (THF). Supplementation of folate is required to maintain adequate levels in mammals.  Folic acid, folinic acid and 5-MTHF are different forms of folate that can be found in folate supplements1. The main differences between folate and folic acid is all about the forms in which they exist, folate is a reduced form while folic acid is an oxidized form. The reduced forms of vitamin B9 such as dihydrofolate and tetrahydrofolate are less stable biochemically,...

What happens when your vitamin B12 is low?

What happens when your vitamin B12 is low?

Posted: June 08 2020 in B-12

Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the cell's metabolism. Our body needs vitamin B12 to maintain the functioning of the nervous system, the health of the red blood cells, and to synthesize nucleic acids (our genetic material). B12 is also involved in the metabolism of homocysteine, which is associated with cardiovascular diseases when levels are high in our blood. Like most vitamins, B12 can´t be synthesized by our bodies, thus we must get it from food or supplementation. The problem is some people don´t consume enough B12 to meet their needs. Other´s simply can´t absorb it, no matter how much they intake. This can be due to pernicious anemia, reduced levels of stomach acidity, intestinal disorders or even genetic...

Physical Signs and Symptoms of Methylation Problems

Physical Signs and Symptoms of Methylation Problems

Posted: May 12 2020 in Deficiencies

Methylation might sound like a complicated word, but it’s actually an easy and common process occurring in your body happening constantly. It involves adding a methyl group -- one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms -- to a chemical compound, giving it the power it needs to be utilized by the body. It’s an essential process that our bodies can’t do without. To dig a little deeper into the topic, the methyl group is provided by a donor known as S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). The donor will only do its job effectively if the body is producing methylfolate, which acts as a switch for the system that makes SAMe available.  Due to our busy lifestyles and poor eating habits, it’s quite common...

What Does Methylfolate Do For Your Body?

Posted: July 02 2020 in Methylfolate Facts

Methylfolate is an essential part of our human body and will play a major role in a variety of body functions. One of the main responsibilities of methylfolate will be to increase the production of red blood cells. Red blood cells help transport oxygen throughout the body, as well as transport carbon dioxide to the lungs.  In addition to that, methylfolate will have access to cells and tissue in the brain since it can cross the blood-brain barrier. Inside the brain, it will help produce neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters regulate our emotions and moods throughout the day.  Outside of those two main functions, methylfolate will also help repair DNA, assist the detoxification process in the body,...

Beginning a Probiotic Regimen - What to Expect

Posted: May 16 2020 in Staying Healthy

There are a large number of bacteria that live in our bodies, primarily in our guts. In fact, we have around ten times more bacteria than we do cells. While most people believe bacteria to be negative -- and they can be in many instances -- some bacteria will do a lot of good for our bodies. Probiotics are one such classification of these “good types” of bacteria. They’re living microorganisms that can be ingested by mouth to provide a wide range of benefits. Probiotics shouldn’t be confused with prebiotics, which are dietary fibers that act as food for the probiotics. Having too much bad bacteria in your gut can cause an imbalance and be linked to various health diseases,...
