The Importance Of Folate
- Active Form Of Folate
- Prenatal Support
- Red Blood Cell Health
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that must be replaced regularly since it is not stored in the body to any extent. Most people, in particular the elderly, do not obtain enough folate rom their diet for optimal functioning so supplementation is important. Folic acid is the best-known form of folate. Folic acid is probably most recognized for its positive effects on prenatal health. It may reduce the risk of neural tube defects, so it is important for all women of childbearing age to include at least 400 mcg of folic acid into their diet even before they plan a pregnancy. Additionally, folic acid works with vitamins B12 and C in the utilization of proteins and is essential to the development of heme, the protein-containing iron in hemoglobin needed to form red blood cells. It is also vital for the metabolism of amino acids and the synthesis of DNA and RNA.What's so special about Solgar's Folate (as Metafolin) products?
Folic acid must be converted in the body to its active form via a series of biochemical steps, but Metafolin (L-methylfolate) requires no conversion because it is bioidentical to the active form in the body. When compared to folic acid, L-methylfolate has been shown to be absorbed equally as well, has a higher bioavailability in an equal dose, and may be more consistently bioavailability. In addition, L-methylfolate does not appear to hide indications of vitamin B12 deficiency, a concern when supplementing with high levels of folic acid. Research has shown L-methylfolate to be even more effective than folic acid in supporting heart health. Studies have also shown its positive effects on vessel, brain, and sperm health. Additionally, since folate is particularly important for the normal development of the fetus and the neural tube, L-methylfolate's higher bioavailability may make it a preferred form for those concerned with prenatal support.Solgar Folate 400 mcg and 800 mcg (as Metafolin) Tablets Facts:
