QuatreActiv Folate x 90 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
Folate is often called the natural form of vitamin B9, but it actually refers to a family of different compound that occur naturally in some vegetables. Folic acid is the supplemental or “synthetic” form of vitamin B9 and is typically the first line of treatment for folate deficiency and related health conditions, such as high homocysteine and Neural Tube Defects. Any folic acid we ingest must be metabolised (converted) into Dihydrofolate (DHF), Tetrahydrofolate (THF), and then finally into L-methylfolate (5-MTHF) to be used in the body. Once in this form it can be transported into cells, tissues and even across the blood-brain barrier.
Unfortunately, many who have a genetic MTHFR mutation are unable to utilise these nutrients properly. For these individuals, the L-methylfolate (5-MTHF) is readily utilised by the body and has emerged as a popular alternative form of supplement to folic acid and folate.
QuatreActiv® Folate contains Quatrefolic®, the glucosamine salt of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). This new patented form of 5-MTHF has demonstrated greater bioavailability than the 5-MTHF calcium salt form. It also shows enhanced solubility and stability.
