Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) May 18, 2017
CoMED Health, a company that holds a variety of brands focused on alternative products and medicine, recently profiled its product FolicSelect and the benefits it has for consumers.
FolicSelect contains a combination of vitamin B12 (also known as cyanocobalamin) and folic acid. It comes in a tablet form to be taken once daily or as directed by a physician. One of the major benefits of the product is that the ingredients work in conjunction with each other to lower the levels of homocysteine in the body, converting it to methionine. But why exactly is this important?
“Researchers have found a definite link between high levels of homocysteine and conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,” said Greg Martin, head of marketing and sales for CoMED Health. “Lowering the amount of homocysteine found in the body is beneficial even to people who have not yet experienced any sort of cardiac event or problem. Considering the amount of people who die from heart disease in the United States alone every single year, the importance of these benefits cannot be understated.”
In most cases, high levels of homocysteine are caused by certain lifestyle choices, such as consuming alcohol, smoking, too much caffeine, or indulging in a particularly stressful lifestyle. These issues are exacerbated when women who are pregnant or are intending to become pregnant partake in such a lifestyle. Women who have high levels of homocysteine might also have difficulties in becoming pregnant.
Living a healthier lifestyle is a great way to lower one’s risk of high levels of homocysteine. But for some people, additional help in the form of supplementation may be necessary. FolicSelect’s mixture of vitamin B12 and folic acid not only contributes to promoting normal homocysteine metabolism, but also helps ensure strong maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, meaning the supplement is especially beneficial for pregnant women.
“People of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from FolicSelect, but clearly pregnant women and women planning a pregnancy have even more reasons to try it for themselves,” said Martin. “We are pleased to be able to offer this product throughout the United States.”
