Keeping the Family Healthy Together with United Home Products

The health of my family has always been my priority as a mom. I always do what I can to make sure that no one gets sick. It can take such an emotional toll on me as mom whenever my husband or our kids get sick. But since the opportunity to get regular exercise doesn’t come as often as we would have wanted, I make sure that we make healthy food choices. I am aware that we don’t get all the nutrients we need from the food that we consume daily which is why we also have the supplements and medicines that we would need to keep each of us in tip top shape.

This is why, I’m glad that there’s Unilab’s United Home products. They have come up with some very interesting products that I’m sure, just like the previous ones they have, will benefit the entire family.

Why You Need Vitamin B12 for the Fall Time



Even though you may think that you’re getting enough vitamins during the fall time, you may be forgetting some vital nutrients that your body needs. If you’re eating all of the right foods that your body needs that’s fantastic, but there are always vitamins lacking that your body needs. Vitamin B12 is important for you to take during any season and by pumping your body full of this vitamin you’ll have healthy red blood cells. This vitamin will also produce other positive results from B12 that will in turn help improve a healthy lifestyle.

Red Blood Cells and DNA –


Vitamin B12 helps your body produce red blood cells and DNA. DNA is an important genetic material that’s very much needed, especially when your body is having a constant turnover of tissue from your digestive tract. Folic acid works in conjunction with vitamin B12 for normal cell division too.

When you get pregnant cell division from B12 and folic acid help make sure that the divisions of cells for your baby are always healthy. That’s why folic acid is very important to take when you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. Without B12 and folic acid a deficiency is linked with abnormalities in babies, which you can prevent by taking this vital vitamin.

Nervous System Problems –

Without B12 you also can have issues with your nervous system, which is taken care of by the vitamin B12. Deficiencies include symptoms such as depression, dementia, and other problems that affect your nervous system. It also can cause anemia, which you can tell if you have by recognizing the paleness of your skin, feeling weak and tired all of the time, and you may also have bruises on your skin more frequently than normal. Don’t allow your nervous system to be damaged by a lack of folic acid and B12. Get it treated and take enough B12 so that your body and its nervous system will function properly.

Uses of Protein –

B12 and folic acid also help with the effective uses of protein. After all, if you’re wondering what kind of foods to eat, focus on fish, shellfish, meat, and dairy products. All of these foods contain B12 and the result will be enough red cell production, a healthy pregnancy, a functioning nervous system, and a healthy body overall thanks to this important vitamin.
