Highly bioavailable folate as Metafolin® L-5-MTHF, 1 mg.
Folate deficiencies are common as many individuals do not consume enough
folate-rich foods and dietary folates are readily destroyed by cooking or
processing. Although typically included in multivitamins, some individuals do
not effectively methylate and convert folic acid into its active form thus are
still at risk of deficiency. L-5-MTHF, the active, methylated form of folate,
requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, thus it is often
the preferred choice for those with absorption or metabolic defects. L-MethylFolate
efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism,
and nervous system function.
