Folate is the combination of two water soluble B vitamins: Folic acid and vitamin B12. In this formula folate is provided as Metafolin, that is, the active form of folate which is naturally occurring and very easily metabolised.
At a chemical level, Metafolin is identical to metabolized folate (L-5-MTHF). This is the predominant form of folate in foods. After going through several enzymatic activation pathways, the body uses it directly, providing all the positive benefits of folic acid, regardless of genetic or functional variations in each person.
In this supplement, vitamin B12 is formulated as methylcobalamin, the most bioavailable form of this vitamin.
B12 Folate 400 is a nutritional supplement related to nutrient metabolism. It helps transform carbohydrates into energy. In addition, it is very important in the processes of fat metabolism.
This combination of active folate and vitamin B12 plays an important role in maintaining muscle tone, the digestive system and skin and hair health, as well as the liver. It is also helpful for maintaining healthy levels of homocysteine.
If folate amounts are critical, nucleic acid synthesis and neurotransmitters will be affected. Therefore, this supplement acts positively on the health of the nervous system.
At molecular level, folate's main function is to donate methyl groups to key biochemical reactions that occur in blood cells, neurons, blood vessels and other tissues. Furthermore, after several studies, it has been possible to prove its support in neurological functions, being very important for cognition, mood and memory.
