Methyl Folate

60 tablets
This product is suitable for vegans


Methyl Folate from Douglas Laboratories® supplies 1000 mcg of biologically active folate, also called (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).

Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including green leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. Supplemental folate intake increases maternal folate status in women of child-bearing age. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in a developing fetus. A supplemental intake of 400 mcg folate daily for at least one month before and up to three months after conception offers beneficial effects.

Folate also plays a role in the normal metabolism of homocysteine.

Metafolin® is a patented natural formula of methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the predominant naturally occurring form of folate commonly found in cells. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for additional conversion through the MTHFR enzyme. In certain populations, the body's ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF through this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences.

Moreover, folate supports the normal production of blood and amino acids and contributes to maternal tissue growth (placenta and uterus) during pregnancy.
