Animi-3 oral Uses

This product contains vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fatty acids. It is used to treat or prevent a lack of these nutrients during pregnancy or due to poor diet or certain illnesses. Vitamins are important building blocks of the body and help keep you in good health. Women who are or may become pregnant should maintain adequate levels of folic acid through either diet or supplements to prevent spinal cord birth defects. Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to help reduce the risk of heart disease and also to promote healthy skin.
