What Is It?
Folate is provided in this formula as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate
(5-MTHF), the universally metabolized and biologically active form
of folate. This form 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.*
Folate 5,000 Special Features
• 5,000 mcg of activated folate per capsule
• Made with hypoallergenic, vegan ingredients
Uses for Folate 5,000
Cellular Health: An extensive body of evidence indicates that
adequate folate intake may provide significant cardiovascular,
cellular and neural protection. However, genetic variations affecting
activation and metabolism of supplemental folic acid are highly
prevalent. 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, universally metabolized
and active form of folate. As such, it can be directly used in a diverse
array of essential methylation reactions. Additionally, clinical
evidence indicates that the bioavailability of 5-MTHF is superior
to folic acid. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled
intervention study of 144 women of child-bearing age, 5-MTHF
supplementation resulted in a greater accumulation of 5-MTHF in red
blood cells than equimolar doses of folic acid. 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.*
