Spray Labs’ Vitamin B9 provides a combination of folic acid (often referred to as vitamin B9), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 in a great tasting, easy to use, oral spray.
For many years it has been suggested that all women of childbearing age should take a daily supplement of folic acid (B9) because this vitamin has been shown to be very important in the development of the nervous system of a developing fetus.
Over 30 years ago, British researchers found that mothers of children born with spina bifida had low vitamin levels. This spurred further research, which showed that getting too little folate increased a woman’s chances of having a baby with spina bifida or anencephaly and that getting enough folate could greatly reduce the incidence of these birth defects.
Timing of folate is critical. In order for it to be effective, it must be taken in the first few weeks after conception, often even before a woman knows she is pregnant. Therefore, it is recommended that women of childbearing age should take a daily folic acid supplement.
Another line of research into the benefits of folate involves two other B vitamins, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, the same combination found in Spray Labs Vitamin B9 oral spray. This research explores their roles in fighting heart disease and some types of cancer. Although the research findings have been mixed, there are some studies suggesting that these three vitamins can help to lower the risk of these chronic diseases. The reason is that folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 play key roles in converting homocysteine into methionine. Without enough folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12, this conversion process becomes inefficient and homocysteine levels increase. In turn, most but not all studies have linked high levels of homocysteine with a modest increase in risk of heart disease and stroke.
It is also known that folic acid is important for healthy cell division and replication, due to its involvement as a coenzyme for RNA and DNA synthesis. It is also required for protein metabolism and in treating folic acid anemia. Folic acid also assists in digestion, and the nervous system, and works at improving mental as well as emotional health. This nutrient may be effective in treating depression and anxiety.
One additional fact to remember is that too much folic acid may mask a vitamin B12 deficiency, which is another reason that Spray Labs Vitamin B9 oral spray also contains vitamin B12.
Enough folate, at least 400 micrograms a day, isn’t always easy to get from food that is not fortified. That’s why Spray Labs’ Vitamin B9 oral spray supplement delivers 800 mcg in a single daily dose, which is quickly and efficiently absorbed and used by the body.

Why Oral Sprays?
Healthy sprays can deliver rapid absorption of vitamins and minerals and are more effectively absorbed than the same dosage in pills. Pills have many extras such as shellac, talc, waxes and colourings which can make them hard for the body to digest. Only 10 -12% of the nutrients taken in pill form are actually absorbed. This means for every £50 spent £40-£45 of this is wasted.
