Provides folic acid as methylfolate (5-MTHF) which is a stable and methylated form of folate. Methylfolate fulfils all the known uses of folic acid. Many supplements contain folic acid, however, folic acid has to undergo a number of steps within the body in order to be converted to the active form. If methylfolate supplementation is indicated, we recommend taking an all-round multi that includes all the B vitamins, including B12, as a foundation. This product could be taken in addition, if needed, on the advice of a health practitioner.
