Protocol For Life Balance
-Metabolically Active Folate*
Each lozenge contains:
Folate [from Quatrefolic® (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid Glucosamine Salt] 1000 mcg
Medicinal Ingredients: Cellulose, Stearic Acid (vegetable source), Silica.
How it Works:
Folate consumed in the diet or from supplements must be converted to its active form, 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), to be used by the body. This is a multi-step biochemical process that, in some circumstances, may not be efficient enough to meet the body’s needs. In addition, unlike folic acid, 5-MTHF can penetrate the blood-brain barrier. This product utilizes a patented form of 5-MTHF with superior bioavailability.
Methylfolate is the biologically active, naturally occurring form of folate that is used for fundamental body functions like normal cell division and the synthesis of neurotransmitters and DNA. Folate and folic acid from our food and supplements must be converted to its active form in the body. Some individuals lack the enzymes necessary to perform this conversion. Methylfolate bypasses this faulty step and provides a biologically active form of folic acid.Unlike regular folic acid, Methylfolate has been shown to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to support neurological health. Quatrefolic® is a patented form of Methylfolate that has demonstrated bioavailability superior to that of folate from dietary sources. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Take 1 tablet daily with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
FOLINIC ACID, which also is known as 5-formyl tetrahydrofolate, is one active form in a group of vitamins known as folates. In contrast to folic acid, a synthetic form of folate, folinic acid is one of the forms of folate found naturally in foods.
