Folate/Folic acid is essential for both men and women.
As a growth promotor folate (folic acid) is particularly important for women when they become pregnant. It is advisable to take during preconception as folate helps protect against birth defects that can arise in the early stages of pregnancy – even before many women realise they are pregnant.
Provides folic acid as methylfolate (5-MTHF) which is stable and optimally bioeffective form of folate. 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 methylfolate and this process is not always efficient. Hence methylfolate is the preferred choice form of folate for everyone.
