FOLTX (VITAMIN B12/FOLIC ACID/VITAMIN B6)

Foltx Will Help Treat Hyperhomocysteinemia

For the prevention or treatment of a vitamin deficiency, your doctor can recommend Foltx. The active ingredients of Foltx include Vitamin B12/Folic Acid/Vitamin B6 and is prescribed to treat heart and blood vessel diseases that cause high levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that can damage the linings of your arteries and can increase the risk of blood clots in blood vessels unless something is done to lower the level of this amino acid.

Important B Vitamins

When Foltx is taken as directed, Vitamin B12 (cobalamin), Folic Acid (B9), and Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) all work together to raise your Vitamin B levels which, in turn, will lower your homocysteine levels. There are 8 B vitamins and they are water-soluble, meaning after you’ve consumed food or supplements with these vitamins, they are used as needed as they move through your bloodstream and any that remains is excreted in your urine. If your diet fails to contain enough of the B vitamins needed for the many processes it is vital for in your body, you could find yourself with hyperhomocysteinemia.

Vitamin B12 needs to be consumed daily as it is essential for assisting your nervous system, it boosts brain function, and helps with the formation of red blood cells. Folic Acid helps make healthy new cells, protects against anemia, helps with proper functioning of your brain, and is important during a pregnancy to reduce the risk of birth defects. Vitamin B6 maintains normal nerve function, makes antibodies to fight off diseases, maintains nerve function, and makes hemoglobin.

More About Hyperhomocysteinemia

Hyperhomocysteinemia can occur if you have inherited 1 or 2 mutated genes that causes a failure in your body’s ability to breakdown the amino acid called homocysteine. It can also happen as a reaction to certain medication, kidney disease, and from a diet lacking in some of the essential B vitamins.

In children, symptoms of high homocysteine levels do not usually appear until around the age of 3 and can include problems with vision and skeletal abnormalities with gradual development of osteoporosis. As adults, symptoms of high homocysteine levels can raise your risk of coronary artery disease, stroke, heart attack, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and anemia.

Before You Take Foltx

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding and currently taking prenatal vitamins. Explain other medical conditions or allergies to your doctor and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including other supplements or herbal remedies, to determine if Foltx is right for you.

Proper Use of Foltx

If you feel that taking Foltx without food is making your stomach upset, try taking it with a meal or snack. Check with your doctor before you start a new drug or supplement to be certain it will not interfere with taking Foltx. Do not share any meds or supplements with others and keep them out of children’s reach.

Possible Side Effects of Foltx

  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting/ nausea

Seek immediate medical assistance if you experience signs of an allergic reaction to Foltx, including hives, trouble breathing/swallowing, swelling of your lips, mouth, face, or chest tightness.
