Dietary supplement with several important vitamins
As revealed by its name, you'll find both vitamin B6 and B12 in Healthwell Folic Acid + B6 + B12 + D. Along with folic acid, vitamin B12 is a vitamin involved in the formation of blood cells. But it also contributes to a normal nervous system and metabolism in the cells. In terms of food, vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal products, such as meat, dairy products, and fish, and, to some extent, in vegetable products. However, the B12 found in vegetable products is an inactive form of the vitamin that the body is unable to absorb. Thus, those who do not eat any or very little animal foods will probably need to complement their diet with a supplement of vitamin B12.
Vitamin B6 is important for metabolism, as it is needed when the body is to metabolise protein. It also plays a role in nerve function, contributes to normal hormone regulation, and helps to reduce fatigue. This vitamin is abundant in animal foods, but can also be found in potatoes, cereals, and legumes.
We get vitamin D3, the sun's vitamin, from our diet and from the sun's UVB rays. But because the sun's rays are too weak during the dark winter in Sweden, many people want to supplement their intake during these months in order to avoid fatigue and exhaustion. Vitamin D also plays a role in regulating calcium balance in teeth and bones. Even those who spend little time outdoors or maintain a vegetarian diet may need a supplement of vitamin D3. The vitamin D in Healthwell Folic Acid + B6 + B12 + D comes from lichen.
