Small, easy to take wholefood capsules which provide folic acid as methylfolate (5-MTHF) the most stable and naturally active form of folate for optimum absorption.

Many supplements contain folic acid, however folic acid must undergo several steps within the body to be converted to the active form – 5-MTHF. The final step in this conversion is carried out in your body by an enzyme called MTHFR but some people have genetic mutations which means this enzyme has reduced efficiency in converting folic acid to 5MTHF. 

Folic acid contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism. This is important as high homocysteine is a risk factor for several chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline. Folate is used in the methylation cycle; a chemical process is needed for the proper functioning of almost all body systems. Methyl donors include folate, B12 and B6, among other nutrients, which are vital to normal methylation and therefore homocysteine metabolism.

Functions of methylation include: 

  • Detoxing environmental toxins 
  • Regulating hormones 
  • Energy production 
  • Production of neurotransmitters 
  • Production of immune cells 
  • Metabolism of homocysteine 

Folate contributes to:

  • Psychological function
  • Blood formation
  • Homocysteine metabolism
  • Maternal tissue growth during pregnancy
  • Immune system function
  • Reduction of tiredness and fatigue

Each capsule contains

  • 400mcg folic acid (as 5 methyltetrahydrofolate)

  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (capsule shell).
