AOR BioFolate, 30 Vegetable Capsules
Folic acid (or folate) is vitamin B9, a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in DNA and RNA synthesis, red blood cell production, the metabolism of proteins, and healthy genetic expression. BioFolate contains L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the active form of folate that is used in the body. Unlike the folates found in dark green leafy vegetables, oranges, liver, and most supplemental forms of folic acid, L-5-MTHF does not need to be enzymatically altered prior to absorption, and is therefore absorbed twice as efficiently as natural folates. In addition, a large percentage of the population lacks the ability to convert dietary folate into the biologically active form, which can cause a folate deficiency. BioFolate also contains a small amount of vitamin B12 in the active form of methylcobalamin, since folate supplementation can mask a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Supplementing with L-5-MTHF helps prevent a folic acid deficiency. Folate deficiency can cause a number of health problems, of which the most documented is neural tube defects in developing infants. Symptoms of deficiency include: weakness, fatigue, irritability, headaches, difficulties in cognitive function, mood imbalances, cramps, palpitations, shortness of breath, and can lead to more serious health problems.
