  • A-F Betafood®, 360 Tablets

    Standard Process Inc A-F Betafood®, 360 Tablets

    A-F Betafood is a gallbladder supplement that supports bile production and includes an array of whole food and other ingredients to support healthy fat digestion.* Supports healthy bile flow in the gallbladder Supports bile production and helps maintain healthy liver function Supports healthy lipid metabolism Supports healthy bowel functioning* Contains a combination of key ingredients from Cataplex® A, Cataplex® F Tablets, and Betafood® Excellent source of vitamin A and iodine Good source of vitamin B6 Gallbladder Support The gallbladder is a storage location for the bile that’s produced by the liver. Bile plays a key role in fat digestion and removal of waste from the body. 20-25 million Americans are affected by concerns of the gallbladder, including its efficiency and ability to function correctly.1 Beet (Root) and Beet Leaf Beets, a main ingredient in A-F Betafood, contain betalains and betaine, which are two phytonutrients that have been linked to various health benefits. Betalains are water-soluble, nitrogen-containing pigments,2 and betaine is an N-methylated amino acid.3 Betalains are natural antioxidants4,5 found in certain plants including red beets.6 They have been shown to support antioxidant activity,4,5 as demonstrated by emerging research on betanin’s (a major betalain compound) ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation.5 Additional research has also shown that betanin may bind to circulating LDL and protect it against oxidation as demonstrated in an ex vivo-induced oxidation study.6  How A-F Betafood Supports Your Gallbladder Gallbladder wall thickness may be an indicator of the overall health of the gallbladder, and wall thickening may be an indication of gastrointestinal and liver concerns.7,8 In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 42 healthy adults completed a study with A-F Betafood for 12 weeks.9 The change in gallbladder wall thickness from baseline to week 12 differed significantly between groups (p = 0.0497) with a decrease in thickness observed in the A-F Betafood group after the 12-week supplementation. This study suggests that A-F Betafood improves gallbladder function in adults who are at risk of gallbladder insufficiency.9 References 1. Stinton, L. M., & Shaffer, E. A. (2012).

      Provides recommended 40:1 ratio of myo-inositol to D-chiro-inositol Contains naturally occurring forms of inositol Includes methylcobalamin and activated folate (L-5-MTHF) for healthy fertility and pregnancy* Adequate folate in healthful diets may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect Unflavored powder allows for easy twice-per-day dosing Feature Summary Myo-Inositol Plus provides the two most common, naturally occurring, and complementary forms of inositol: myoinositol and D-chiro-inositol. Both forms of inositol have been shown to support ovarian, metabolic, and endocrine function in women.* Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol have been shown to support both ovarian function, including cycle regularity and normal LH levels, and metabolic function, including HOMA index and insulin.* Additionally, D-chiro-inositol supports endocrine function such as normal androgen levels, as well as blood pressure already within the normal range.*1-9 In Myo-Inositiol Plus, these complementary nutrients are combined in the 40:1 ratio that has been recommended by the International Consensus Conference on myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol.10 This product also contains methylcobalamin and activated folate (L-5-MTHF) for healthy fertility and pregnancy,* both of which are active forms that do not require metabolism for use. Adequate folate in healthful diets may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect.

When given with folic acid, it improved ovulation rates (65.5%) compared to clomiphene alone (42%), as well as pregnancy rates (53.8% combined use vs. 42.2% clomiphene alone).11 Medication dosage to control hyperglycemia may need monitoring, as myo-inositol has benefits on insulin sensitivity similar to metformin.12
