METHYLFOLATE PLUS FORTE? supplies folate (folic acid) in the active form of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt.
METHYLFOLATE PLUS FORTE is a highly absorbable, activated form of folate, which does not require enzymatic conversion to 5-methylfolate in the body. The glucosamine salt included in METHYLFOLATE PLUS FORTE makes it more stable than other forms of methylfolate often used.
While a small percentage of the population (less than10%) lack the enzyme needed to convert folic acid due to a genetic defect, a larger percentage are suspected to convert only a limited amount of folic acid.
Folate deficiency is one of the most common vitamin deficiencies. In individuals with genetic predisposition, eating folate-rich foods may not provide the recommended daily dosage of folate; thus the need for supplementation. By providing 5-methylfolate directly, METHYLFOLATE PLUS FORTE may have benefits for those who do not produce enough 5-methylfolate in response to folic acid supplementation.
Each serving (1 tablet) of METHYLFOLATE PLUS FORTE supplies 800 mcg of folate as 5-methylfolate combined with 50 mcg as methylcoalamin in a biologically active, phytochemically rich vegetable culture base.
