B12 Folate -
B12 Folate provides optimum support for the GI tract, nervous system, and the metabolism of fats and protein.
What Is It?
B12 Folate is a combination of two water-soluble
B vitamins, folic acid and vitamin B12. Folic acid is provided
in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring
universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is
chemically identical to the active folate metabolite,
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5-MTHF is the
predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food.
Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps,
it is directly usable by the body and provides all of
the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or
genetic variations. The B12 in this formula is provided
as methylcobalamin, the most bioavailable form of this
Uses For B12 Folate
Nutrient Metabolism: Folic acid and vitamin B12 are
interrelated in function. They convert carbohydrates
into energy and are vital in the metabolism of fats and
protein. They play an important role in the maintenance
of muscle tone in the GI tract and the integrity of skin,
hair and the liver. They are also critical for maintaining
red blood cell homeostasis and healthy homocysteine
Nervous System Health: Adequate folate status is critical
for nucleic acid synthesis and neurotransmitter synthesis.
At the molecular level, the main function of folate is
to donate methyl groups in key biochemical reactions
occurring in blood cells, neurons, the vasculature and
many other tissues. In recent studies, methylcobalamin
has demonstrated an enhanced ability to support
neurological function. Vitamin B12 promotes protein
synthesis for maintaining healthy nerve cells and myelin.
Methylcobalamin may also help to moderate levels of
glutamate in the brain, encouraging healthy brain
cell activity, as well as memory, mood, and cognitive
function. In general, vitamin B12 works with folate to
promote DNA and red blood cell health.*
What Is The Source?
Metafolin®, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF) is
synthetic. Methylcobalamin is produced from corn
dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is
derived from pine cellulose. Vitamin C (ascorbyl
palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and
