Folate deficiencies are common as many individuals do not consume enough folate-rich foods and dietary folates are readily destroyed by cooking or processing. As a member of the B complex vitamins, it is critical for preserving optimal methylation. Although typically included in multivitamins, some individuals do not effectively methylate and convert folic acid, the form of folate commonly found in fortified foods and supplements, into its active form thus are still at risk of deficiency.
How does L-Methylfolate aid your health?
L-5-MTHF, an active, methylated form of folate, requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, thus it is often the preferred choice for those with absorption or metabolic defects. L-MethylFolate efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function.
"Folic acid has come into the media spotlight as a premier prevention nutrient for spinal cord birth defects. Less well known, but equally important, is its role in preventing high blood homocysteine, a new major risk factor for blood vessel disease and heart attack." Ron Hunninghake, M.D. "Folate: the Prevention Nutrient" Health Hunters Newsletter (April 1997)
