For decades official medicine ignored the scientific evidence suggesting that lack of three vitamins of B group – B6, B12 and, the most important, folic acid (B9) – can trigger heart and strokes. Although our arteries are clean, open and elastic at birth, the process of artery clogging ( atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease) already begins early in life. One of the factors accelerating narrowing of arteries is excess homocysteine, an amino acid, which can accumulate in the plasma and triggers arterial plague and blood clot formation. Without enough these B vitamins in the diet, homocysteine starts building up in the body and becomes drawn into the endothelial cells. It interacts with “bad LDL cholesterol” to clog arteries and makes blood sticker and more prone to form blood clots. Studies show that homocysteine is a prime causative agent in 20 to 40 percent of patients with arterial disease.
In one study in Canada researchers measured the progressive closure and plague building in the carotid neck arteries of thirty eight men and women of average age 58 before and after taking B vitamins for 4.5 years. They discovered that when the subjects were not taking B vitamins their plaque area increase about 50 %. After they took three B vitamins (2.5 mg folic acid, 250mcg B12 and 25 mg B6) the plaque actually decreased in size about 10%. In short, the combination of B6, B12 and folic acid helps clean out arteries and reverse atherosclerosis.
Super Health Folic Acid Plus spray is a powerful blend of Folic Acid, B6 and B12 vitamins. These three B vitamins work in synergy to regulate plasma levels of homocysteine. Deficiencies of these three B vitamins can contribute to hyper-homocysteinemia, which may be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease and for a variety of other conditions, including cognitive decline.
Other functions of these B Vitamins:
- Crucial for proper brain function.
- Play an important role in mental and emotional health.
- Support the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material.
- Important for the growth of cells and tissues during pregnancy and in infancy.
- All three work closely in production of red blood cells.
- Help iron work properly in the body.
