Activated Folate

Activated Folate

Activated Folate offers the important vitamin folate in a methylated formulation for enhanced bioavailability. This formula, calcium 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, is the formula found in foods and therefore more easily absorbed and processed in the body. Most other supplements utilize folic acid, which requires the body to convert into vitamin b9 in the liver. Activated Folate provides the most efficient delivery for this essential vitamin necessary for a balanced diet.

The Science

Folate is the naturally occurring form of vitamin B9 found in many foods. It is also sometimes referred to as methyl folate, methylated folate, or folic acid (the synthetic form). The human body requires folate for many important functions including the formation of DNA, nervous system development, and cellular function. The body does not store folate, making regular intake critical. Supplementation is often recommended including an increased intake for women during pregnancy. Providing folate in this form of calcium 5-methyltetrahydrofolate makes absorption into the body easier and more effective. Folates are various forms of vitamin B9 that are important nutrients for the proper function of the body and brain alike. Unlike fat-soluble vitamins, water-soluble vitamins like folate cannot be stored in the body, making consistent dietary intake necessary and supplementation recommended.
