Folinic Acid

Folinic Acid (also called leucovorin ) is a form of folic acid and is a type of chemoprotective agent and a type of chemosensitizing agent. The active ingredient in a drug used to lessen the toxic effect of substances that block the action of folic acid. Folinic acid is currently being studied in the treatment of a number of types of cancers and other treatment options and it is currently used to treat colorectal cancer and some types of anemia.

Folacin

Folic acid (also called folate) is a water soluble nutrient in the vitamin B complex that the body uses to function and stay healthy. Specifically, folic acid helps to make red blood cells. It is found in whole-grain breads and cereals, liver, green vegetables, orange juice, lentils, beans, and yeast.

B1

Thiamine or thiamin is also called B1  because it was the first B vitamin isolated. Bmay boost the immune system and help the body handle stresses better. Whole-grain or enriched cereals and rice, legumes, wheat germ, and bran are good plant-based food sources, but the sources highest in B1 are pork and organ meats.

B2

B2, also called riboflavin, B2 may be an “anti-aging” vitamin. It produces energy and helps fight against cell and DNA damage, and heart disease, cancer, and other health conditions. In addition, it helps produce red blood cells and has a role in growth. Brewers’ yeast, almonds, organ meats, whole grains, mushrooms, soybeans, milk, eggs and spinach are just some of the best food sources of riboflavin.

B6

Vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, helps the body make several neurotransmitters and melatonin (a body clock regulator). It also helps control the amino acid homocysteine and produce red blood cells and immune system cells. Vitamin B6 has many good food sources, including chicken, tuna, salmon, shrimp, milk, lentils, spinach, carrots, brown rice, sunflower seeds, and whole-grain flour.

B12

Cobalamin is another name for B12, which helps in keeping nerve cells healthy, making DNA, RNA, and red blood cells, improving the action of iron and controlling homocysteine. It is also involved in immune function and mood. Only animal foods such as shellfish, dairy, organ meats, eggs, pork, and others provide this vitamin.

Citrates pH stabilizers

PH-specific citrates are used as buffers to achieve optimal absorption for targeted-GI at proximal jejunam AND in order to meet USP requirements for folic acid dissolution and degradation.

Zinc

Zinc, the second most common mineral in the body, helps in wound healing, the immune system, reproduction, growth, the senses of taste, vision and smell, as well as blood clotting, insulin and thyroid function, and protection against cell damage. Animal sources are richer and more easily absorbed than plant-based sources. Oysters are the richest sources; other sources include red meats, poultry, cheese, and shellfish, legumes, whole grains, brewer’s yeast, cooked greens and pumpkin and sunflower.
