DESCRIPTION The Most Biologically Active Form of Folate (5-MTHF) 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). SUGGESTED USAGE Take one capsule daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
