Metabolically active form of folate
Herbs of Gold Activated Folate 500 contains methylfolate (5-MTHF), the metabolically active form of folate.
Activated Folate 500 contains Quatrafolic® a glucosamine salt providing 500mcg 5-MTHF.
Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate that is metabolised in the body to produce 5-MTHF by the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).
Quatrafolic® demonstrates a high solubility in water which facilitates absorption by mucosal cells for further circulation in the blood.
5-MTHF is a good form for folate supplementation for people with lower activity of the MTHFR enzyme. It’s also a good alternative to folic acid supplementation as it does not mask vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms.
