Bioperine ® increases bioavailability of folic acid, Vitamin B6,
and Vitamin B12, and has the following chemical structure:

Bioperine

Folic Acid is yellowish-orange crystal. The chemical name is
N-[4[ [ (2-Amino-1, 4-dihydro-4-oxo-6-pteridinyl)methyl]
amino]benzoyl]-L-glutamic acid. Its empirical formula is
C19H19N7O6.
The use of supplemental folic acid
may be indicated in patients with
increased requirements for this
vitamin. Folic acid administration may
reduce the risk of neural tube defects
in the developing fetus. Folate as
5-methyltetrahydrofolate and Vitamin
B12 as methylcobalamin participate in
the remethylation reaction of
homocysteine to methionine.

Folic Acid


L-Arginine is a basic amino acid with
the molecular formula C6H14N4O2 and
with a molecular weight of 174.20. It
has 3 pKs: pK1=2.18, pK2=9.09 and
pK3=13.2. Therefore, it carries a
positive charge at physiological pH.
The stereoisomer of L-arginine,
D-arginine, does not have any
biological activity, as far as we know.
L-Arginine is also known as
2-amino-5- guanidinovaleric acid and
(S)-2-amino-5- [(aminoiminomethyl)
amino] pentanoic acid. Its one-letter
abbreviation is R. It is also
abbreviated as Arg. The terms
L-arginine and arginine are frequently
used interchangeably. The structural
formula of L-arginine is as follows:

L-Arginine
L-Arginine shows promise as a
nutritional adjunct in patients
undergoing treatment for
cardiovascular disease (including
atherosclerosis, hypertension,
hyperlipidemia and angina pectoris),
some forms of male infertility and
some kidney disorders and for wound
healing in some circumstances.
There is preliminary evidence that it
could be helpful as a nutritional
adjunct in some men undergoing
treatment for erectile dysfunction and
in some others being treated for
migraine, liver disease and primary
ciliary dyskinesia. There is conflicting
but mostly negative evidence related
to claims that it can improve exercise
performance and promote lean
muscle mass.
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)
appears as dark red crystals or
crystalline red powder. The chemical
name is 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazolyl
cyanocobamide. Its empirical
formula is C63H88CoN14O14P. The
structural formula of
Cyanocobalamin is as follows:

Vitamin B12
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) is a
colorless or white crystal or a white
crystalline powder. It is stable in air
and is slowly affected by sunlight.
The chemical name is 2-methly-3
hydroxy-4, 5-bis (hydroxymethyl)
pyridine. Pyridoxine’s empirical
formula is C8H11NO3. A pyridine
derivative, C18H11NO3, occurring
especially in cereals, yeast, liver, and
fish and serving as a coenzyme in
amino acid synthesis.

Vitamin B6

PRECAUTIONS:

Folic acid in doses above 1 mg daily
may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic
remission can occur while neurological manifestations
remain progressive. An oral dose of 100-250 mcg/day
will maintain adequate serum Vitamin B12 levels in
most patients with pernicious anemia, although some
patients may require as much as 1,000 mcg/day. Those
with renal or hepatic failure should exercise caution in
the use of supplemental L-arginine. Proteins of the
herpes simplex virus are rich in L-arginine, and there
are a few reports (mainly anecdotal) of those taking
supplemental L-arginine who ave had recurrences of oral
herpes lesions. Although it is unlikely that those with a
history of herpes simplex virus infection will have
recurrences if they use L-arginine supplements, they
should nevertheless be aware of this possibility.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

Adult dosage 1 to 2
tablets daily, or as prescribed by a physician or
practitioner.
Not recommended for use in pediatrics.
