Provides folic acid as methylfolate (5-MTHF) which is a stable and methylated form of folate. Methylfolate fulfils all the known uses of folic acid. Many supplements contain folic acid, however, folic acid has to undergo a number of steps within the body in order to be converted to the active form – 5-MTHF. The final step in this conversion is carried out in the body by an enzyme called MTHFR and some people have genetic mutations which means this enzyme has reduced efficiency in converting folic acid to 5-MTHF. Methylfolate does not need to be converted; it is in the active form, ready for use by the body.
Folate contributes to normal:
Folate contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
Folate has a role in the process of cell division
Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.
