Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplement contains folate, also known as folic acid.

Folate has numerous health benefits as it aids in bodily functions such as cell repair and amino acid metabolism. In fact, folate has also been shown to help prevent obesity, some cancers such as colorectal cancer, and heart disease.

If you are pregnant, your unborn child’s brain and spinal cord need folate to develop properly. Women should also be aware that folate helps prevent cervical cancer.

Folate is needed for your body to produce red blood cells, and plays a role in manufacturing your body’s protection (in the form of white blood cells) against potential problems. Folate also helps protect a person from anemia.

A healthy heart is vital to a person’s everyday life, and folate performs an important role—it helps remove homocysteine, a toxic compound that can lead to artery damage if not eliminated from the blood. High homocysteine levels interfere with collagen production, which makes up the base of bone tissue—and can be linked to osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

Folate has also been known to help reduce depression and keep the brain functioning at optimal levels. It helps serotonin production, elevating mood and acting as a mild antidepressant.

Foods rich in folate include leafy green vegetables like spinach and asparagus, as well as cereals, eggs and dairy products.

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplement can be taken orally, mixed with water, with a typical serving providing 105% of a person’s daily folate suggested requirement—that way you can ensure you’re getting enough folate every day to stay healthy.
