Supports Neurotransmitter Synthesis and Critical Enzyme Reactions
Folate is involved in neurotransmitter synthesis and critical enzymatic reactions throughout the body. By depleting excess homocysteine, folate benefits cardiovascular health and nervous system function.
A Bioactive Form of Folate
Research shows that in a large proportion of the population, genetic enzyme deficiencies inhibit the conversion of folate to 5-MTHF, leaving many vulnerable to low blood folate levels (and higher-than-desired homocysteine).
A more useful approach is to take the bioactive folate 5-MTHF directly, which has been declassified as a drug and is now available as a dietary supplement. 5-MTHF has been shown to dramatically raise red blood cell folate levels2 compared with folic acid supplementation.
This bioactive folate is up to seven times more bioavailable than folic acid. This greater bioavailability is especially important in people who have a genetic enzyme deficiency3 since it requires no conversion to become metabolically active.
