Bio Folic Acid + B12 Liquid is a vegan-friendly option that helps to prevent vitamin B12 deficiency among vegetarian and vegans, whose diets tend to provide inadequate levels of vitamin B12.1

  • Both vitamin B12 and folic acid are involved in red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis.2,3
  • Vitamin B12 and folic acid are also required for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, which is necessary for the production of S-adenosyl-methionine, the methyl donor involved in nearly all methylation reactions.4,5
  • Research demonstrates that daily supplementation with 400 mcg of folic acid during the first trimester helps to decrease neural tube defects by approximately 50%.6 In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 119 pregnant women, continued supplementation with 400 mcg of folic acid daily into the second and third trimesters significantly increased maternal and cord blood folate status.7
  • Folic acid intake also better maintained homocysteine levels in the late stages of pregnancy, which may be associated with appropriate methyl transfer activity.5,7
