Each OSFOL softgel contains DHA 200mg, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium 800mg, pyridoxal 5-phosphate and Methylcobalamin 1500mcg
OSFOL is the combination of multi-functional B-type vitamins and DHA. This combination is said to have multiple health benefits with regular usage. These nutrients play a key role in DNA synthesis, combating the negative effects of oxidative stress, lowering the homocysteine levels and in promoting healthy fetal development during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the nutritional demands are comparatively high and not all nutrients can be made available through food. This is when the supplementation of these nutrients becomes important.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) blocks the acyl CoA: 1,2 diacylglycerol acyltransferase, increases the peroxisomal beta-oxidation in the liver, reduces the hepatic triglyceride synthesis and increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase activity. DHA is also helpful in the prevention of fatty liver disease. DHA improves bone strength by enhancing the calcium infusion into the bone matrix. It is helpful in promoting joint health by reducing joint inflammation and joint pain and improving grip strength. DHA deficiency is linked with the activity of melatonin hormone, which regulates the sleep-wake cycle.
L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium is a form of folic acid that has better absorption and health benefits than folic acid itself. Primarily, it boosts the RBC production and prevents different types of anemia. Folate regulates the homocysteine levels and helps in preventing the accumulation of LDL cholesterol, calcium and other toxic byproducts in the arteries and other blood vessels. Folate also serves as an excellent antioxidant and neutralizes the activity of ROS and protects the cells in the body against oxidative damage.
Pyridoxal-5-phosphate is the active form of vitamin B6. This vitamin plays a key role in the production of neurotransmitters, enzymes, nucleic acids and hemoglobin. Pyridoxal-5-phosphate serves as an essential part of the nervous system, immune system and metabolic system. This vitamin is also necessary for the prevention of kidney stone formation. Pyridoxal-5-phosphate is helpful in reducing kidney stoneformation too.
Methylcobalamin is a water-soluble vitamin that has a key role in the synthesis of DNA, normal functioning of the nervous system and the metabolic reactions that take place in the cells. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the regeneration of axons and promotes neuronal repair in case of nerve damage. Vitamin B12 is helpful in the pain management that is crucial in conditions like neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy and lower back pain. Vitamin B12 is essential for carbohydrate metabolism. Vitamin B12 effectively regulates the sleep-wake cycle and could be helpful in the treatment of insomnia.
