Methyl Folate provides 1,000 mcg of Metafolin®, a patented form of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).
5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells. It is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Metafolin® is directly usable by the body without risk of unmetabolized folic acid in the body.
Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with folate before and during the first two months of pregnancy can support proper neurological development in the fetus.
Additionally, folate plays a key role in the metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is created in the body from methionine, an essential amino acid derived solely from dietary intake. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to injure the vasculature, impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 tablet daily or as directed by your healthcare professional.
