Folate is the most active form of folic acid. Excellent for those that have
trouble converting folic acid into its active form. We use only fully
stabilized Quatrefolate, the best form available.
folate may be helpful for a range of health concerns, including:
disorders – Methyl folate represents a better option for patients due to its
greater bioavailability and lack of side effects.
reducer – A folate enriched diet, or supplementation with bioavailable methyl
folate has been shown to lower homocysteine levels, an amino acid associated
with a higher risk of cardiovascular problems.
peripheral neuropathy – A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
found that patients with diabetic neuropathy experienced quality of life
improvements with methyl folate.
Skin disorders – A recent 2013 study found high
proportions of methyl folate in the epidermis, even as serum folate levels
dropped. This has suggested it as a potential UV skin protectant and an option
for skin conditions such as psoriasis.
