Folic Acid +α supplement, “HimeTomo”

A-VPD has added “HimeTomo” to its line-up of Made-in-Japan supplements including JIN.

HimeTomo formula includes Folic acid, Vitamin D, Young Green Barely Leaves, Fe – the four most important nutrition for women.

What is “HimeTomo”?

“Hime” is the Japanese word for “princess”, or more literally “demoiselle”, i.e. a (usually young) lady of higher birth.

Since the dietary supplement contains important nutrition such as folic acid and iron etc.,  we wish Hime Tomo become Women’s good Tomo, which means friend.

Folic acid is required for the growth and development of  the fetus. Folic acid deficiency has been associated with abnormalities in both mothers (anemia, peripheral neuropathy) and fetuses (congenital abnormalities).[1]

Our supplement development team added young Green Barely Leaves, which is loaded with essential nutrients and active enzymes that supply nutrition. Green Barely leaves also offer antioxidant, protection against free radical damage, antidepressant-like effect, overall detoxification and supports cellular metabolism reducing premature aging.
