- with Metafolin L-5-MTHF
- Activated vitamin B12 and folate
- Hypo-allergenic Dietary Supplement
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 vitamin.
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 levels.*
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.
