5 MTHF
5-MTHF (Folate 1 mg (1 000 mcg) the most biologically active form of folate* a breakthrough in folate supplementation the most bioavailable, active form of folate* an excellent source of folate for pregnant women and supports optimal cardiovascular and nerve function* Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body.* This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. Because deficiencies of folic acid have been linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube defects, folic acid requirements double during pregnancy.* The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant. In concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine.* Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA.* It is important for women of childbearing age to get enough folic acid – not just those who are planning to become pregnant. Only 50 percent of pregnancies are planned, so any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day – especially before conception and during early pregnancy. Folic acid is needed for the formation of red blood cells, and for the prevention of folic acid anemia. This nutrient may help treat depression and anxiety as well as cervical dysplasia and prevent nutritional deficiencies from ongoing birth control use. Folate can be combined with a Vitamin B complex for added support.

B Complex
The B complex vitamins are co-enzymes involved in energy production, they assist in maintaining healthy nerves, skin, vision and healthy hair; as well as enhancing brain functions and promoting endurance and stamina. The B vitamins are an important supplement for anyone encountering mental or physical stress due to overwork and assist in memory and brain function. A vitamin B complex is a useful addition to anyone encountering a hormone imbalance, PMS or menopausal symptoms. The B vitamins are essential for liver function and hormone metabolism in the liver. B vitamins are most effective when taken together as a whole complex and are water soluble, meaning that there is no concern of cumulative side effects, (what the body does not need will be voided out), however when the body is under stress the B vitamins are often depleted, thus supplementation is important through times of elevated stress. Caffeine and certain medications, such as oral contraceptives and cardiovascular drugs, (diuretics, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers and cholesterol lowering drugs) deplete the body of all B vitamins, creating a deficit state. Bio Med's High Potency B Compound contains 50 mg of the B's, insuring optimal levels for better overall health - in an easy-to-swallow capsule form.

Folic Acid Tablets
The B vitamin folacin, or folic acid, works closely with vitamin B12 to produce red blood cells. Folic acid is vital to proper cell division and prevents damage to cellular DNA, helping to reduce the risk of colon polyps, colorectal cancer and cervical cancer. Many studies show that folic acid also prevents birth defects. Women planning to have children should supplement with 400 micrograms of folic acid daily to prevent neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. This amount may also lower homocysteine levels in the blood as high levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke. "Folic acid is necessary for proper brain function, being concentrated in the spinal and extracellular fluids. It is essential for mental and emotional health...In surveys conducted, it was shown to be one of the nutrients most often deficient in our diets." Folic acid in supplement form is twice as available to the body as the folate found in foods. The vitamin has a low toxicity. A one-thousand-fold increase in the daily requirement may be consumed with no harmful effects. Daily doses of 15 mg are non-toxic. If excess is ingested, the extra is excreted in the urine. Birth control pills increase the body's demand for folic acid and may result in folic acid deficiency. Phenytoin (Dilantin) competes with folic acid for absorption. Prevents birth defects in unborn children. Necessary for proper brain and nervous system function. Helps lower homocysteine levels in the blood. Reduces the risk of colon polyps. Aids in the production of healthy red blood cells.

Indole 3 Carbinol
* Featured Product *
* Top Seller *
Indole-3-Carbinol used to support estrogen metabolism, maintains optimal 2-hydroxy/16-hydroxy estrogen ratios, found in cabbage family vegetables, it's a source of DIM offering nutritional support for liver detoxification and made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability. I3C provides key nutritional support for liver detoxification and plays an important role in supporting female reproductive health - particularly related to an estrogen imbalance including breast, endometrial and cervical health. The majority of ingested I3C is absorbed in the small intestine as diindolylmethane (DIM), which is thought to be the primary contributor to I3C's beneficial properties. DIM has been shown to selectively bind to estrogen receptors and may act as an estrogen antagonist at physiological concentration. In the liver, I3C promotes the metabolism of estrogen and increases the ratio of 2-hydroxy estrogen to 16-hydroxy estrogen.* The 2-hydroxy estrogens, less active than the 16-hydroxy estrogens, generally are eliminated more rapidly from the body. One prospective study found postmenopausal women with the most favorable urinary 2:16-hydroxyestrone ratio were most likely to maintain good female health. Used with calcium d glucarate and Crucera SGS.
