Methyl Folate contains Quatrefolic the most biologically active form of folate allowing rapid uptake into the bloodstream.* This superior, methylated form of folate is metabolically active and ready for the body to use since it requires no additional conversion to be absorbed.* Folate is also necessary for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.* The 5-MTHF in this formula is also known as the L form of 5-MTHF since it is the reduced form of folate.
Folate supplementation supports healthy cardiovascular function, healthy nervous system function and assists in maintaining proper homocysteine metabolism.* Additionally, folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of congenital malformations including neural tube defects (malformations of the spine, skull, and brain).*
