B Vitamins Clean Out Arteries

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 (more…)

Folic Acid helps to combat heart disease

Folic acid (vitamin B9), together with vitamin B12, is necessary to form red blood cells. The form of folic acid occurring naturally in food is called ‘folate’. Folate is found naturally in a wide variety of foods and is also present in foods fortified with folic acid. Deficiency of folic acid can cause a type of anaemia (reduced oxygen-carrying ability of red blood cells) called ‘macrocytic’ (large cell) anaemia. Both vitamins together also help nerves to function properly are also essential for the formation of DNA (genetic material) allowing each cell to replicate perfectly. (more…)
