OUR FOLIC ACID SUPPLEMENT
Our folic acid supplement provides 400μg of high-quality methylfolate in capsule form. We have used L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) to form our folic acid health supplement. L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate is the metabolically active form of folic acid and is found in nature. Synthetic folic acid has to undergo several biochemical conversions in the body to become 5-MTHF. By supplementing with 5-MTHF rather than synthetic folic acid, one can be assured of getting all the benefits of folic acid.
WHAT IS FOLIC ACID?
Folic Acid is a water-soluble nutrient that is part of the vitamin B complex family. It is essential to the formation of red blood cells.
WHAT DOES FOLIC ACID DO?
Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. The beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400μg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception for women of child bearing age.
