Why do we need collagen?
Folic acid is a B vitamin that is needed for our bodies to form new cells and blood cells. The vitamin is present in much of the food we eat, but in very small amounts, so many people don't get enough of it through diet alone. Due to the important role of folic acid in cell formation, folic acid supplementation is therefore recommended for all pregnant women, and especially during the first period of pregnancy. Folic acid reduces the risk of spina bifida in the fetus during the first three months of pregnancy. It is also important to eat folic acid during the remaining months of pregnancy to contribute to the mother's blood formation. Healthwell Folic acid + B6 + B12 + D contains 400 mcg of folic acid per daily dose, which is the dose the National Food Administration recommends to pregnant women or women who plan to become pregnant within the next few months.
All B vitamins
In Healthwell’s Folic Acid + B6 + B12 + D you will find - as the name suggests - both vitamins B6 and B12. Vitamin B12 is, together with folic acid, a vitamin that is involved in the formation of blood cells. But it also contributes to a normal nervous system and cell circulation. Vitamin B12 is found mainly in animal foods such as meat, dairy products and fish, and to some extent in vegetables. However, the form of B12 found in vegetables is an inactive form of the vitamin that the body cannot assimilate, so those who do not eat any or very little animal foods will probably need to supplement their diet with a supplement of vitamin B12.
Vitamin B6 is important for energy metabolism because it is needed when the body is to metabolize protein. It also plays a role in the function of the nerves, contributes to normal hormone regulation and to reduced fatigue. This vitamin is also found in abundance in animal foods, but it is also possible to get vitamin B6 via potatoes, cereals and legumes.
Vitamin D3 from vegan source
Vitamin D3, the sun's vitamin, we get from our diet and from the sun's UVB rays. But since the sun's rays are too weak during the winter months in Sweden, many people want to supplement their intake during the dark months to avoid feelings of fatigue and exhaustion. Vitamin D also plays a role in regulating the calcium balance in teeth and bones. Even people who don’t spend much time outdoors or who follow a completely vegetarian diet may need a supplement of vitamin D3. Healthwell’s Folic Acid + B6 + B12 + D, vitamin D comes from lichen.
