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.From:

Cold Milled Flax Seeds - Certified-organic flax seeds carefully chosen for nutritional value and taste. Cold milling chops the seed without heating the mill blades, so the essential fatty acids remain intact. The flax is not crushed, so the precious oil is retained. Flax Seeds contain both lignans and essential fatty acids (EFA's). EFA's are essential for maintaining good health by acting as building blocks in cell membranes and aiding in the production of hormone-like substances that are necessary for energy metabolism. Lignans, also known as complex carbohydrates or polysaccharides, are an important part of high-fiber foods that come from plants. Flax seeds have 75-800 times more lignans than as many as 68 other fruits and vegetables. They are the richest available source of plant lignans. Organic flax seeds are a vegetarian and gluten free source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA's). Since our bodies cannot produce EFA's, they must be obtained from our diet. Our bodies depend on EFA's for normal cell function. Essential fatty acids act as building blocks in cell membranes, and produce hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism and cardiovascular and immune health.$7.99
