Why folic acid and vitamin B12 are required

The benefits of folic acid and vitamin B12 for successful conception and childbearing are well known today.

These biologically active substances are involved in many vital processes in the body. In particular, they reduce the amount of homocysteine ​​- the amino acid that worsens blood supply to the nervous tissue.

Benefits of taking folic acid and vitamin B12 in pregnancy

Taking folic acid and vitamin B12 in pregnancy planning helps avoid neural tube defects developing in the fetus, cleft lip and palate, heart defects, abnormalities of the limb structure and urinary system organs. Folic acid prevents the occurrence of problems with fetal growth and minimizes the risk of intrauterine growth retardation.

Absorbing folic acid

Folic acid contained in food and vitamin complexes is in a biologically inactive form, so when entering the human body, it is not absorbed immediately, but goes through a complex way of transformation into an active compound.

When the inactive form of folic acid gets into the body, it is transformed – under the action of the methyltetrahydrofolate reductase enzyme (MTHFR) – into the biologically active form of folic acid (5-methyltetrahydrofolate).

It is this active form of folic acid that’s included in Miofolic, which is perfectly absorbed by the body and involved in complex biochemical processes.

According to official statistics, about 30-40% of the population in the European Community suffers from a genetic mutation (C677T polymorphism), resulting in an inability to absorb and metabolize folic acid from food and food additives.

4th generation folic acid is a biologically active form of folic acid, ready for absorption, with a high level of bioavailability without the need for metabolism in the body. It can be absorbed regardless of possible MTHFR gene mutation.

Miofolic contains 4th generation folic acid and vitamin B12. This innovative compound improves the reproductive system condition, which contributes to the conception and bearing of a healthy baby.

Hyperhomocysteinemia

Hyperhomocysteinemia is one of the essential causes of reproductive function disorder in women.

Hyperhomocysteinemia (high levels of homocysteine in the blood) is a pathological condition, based on a complex process that leads to an increase in the synthesis of homocysteine ​​from methionine.

High homocysteine concentrations ​​in the blood have a toxic effect on cells, disrupt the normal structure of the inner layer of blood vessels, giving rise to the formation of parietal thrombi and atherosclerotic plaques.

The condition often leads to infertility, miscarriage and the birth of children with anomalies in the development of the central nervous system.

Hyperhomocysteinemia and dysfunction of microcirculation in tissues can create serious obstetric problems. Most often the disease can present in:

  • placentation disorders, caused by the fetal egg implantation defect (attachment to the uterine wall)
  • non-carrying of pregnancy associated with miscarriages in the early stages
  • chronic placental circulation deficiency, which leads to intrauterine hypoxia of the fetus
  • late toxicosis of pregnant women
  • premature birth
  • the birth of babies with the brain defect or the non-closure of the medullary canal

Treating hyperhomocysteinemia

Some factors of high homocysteine level ​​in the blood are easily eliminated by controlling certain aspects of a person’s life. Other causes require a medical correction.

For example, hyperhomocysteinemia is induced by regular coffee consumption and smoking. At the same time, small amounts of alcohol contribute to a decrease in the homocysteine concentration, and large doses of alcohol increase it. Moderate physical activity contributes to the homocysteine reduction.

Hyperhomocysteinemia can also be treated with drugs containing high doses of folic acid and vitamin B12.

Prescribing Miofolic for a woman preparing for pregnancy prevents the complex consequences of the pathological homocysteine increase in the blood.

Therapeutic effect of Miofolic is provided by its balanced composition, namely 4th generation folic acid, vitamin B12 and myo-inositol, which is responsible for normal glucose metabolism and hormone balance.

Miofolic is the key to successful pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby.

Why is it important to prepare for pregnancy?

When a woman becomes pregnant, she experiences significant changes in body and mind. Her body needs to carry a baby for nine months to give life to a new human being. She might find that her goals, moods and attitudes towards herself and others are different. It’s important, therefore, to make sure that her body is ready to conceive, bear and give birth to a healthy baby.
