Folic Acid must first be converted to its active form by a series of biochemical steps before it is able to be used by the body. Metafolin® (L-methylfolate) requires no conversion because it is bioidentical to the bio-active form. In other words, it is ‘body-ready’. This can be useful for individuals whose bodies have difficulty converting folic acid to its active form. The active folate in this formulation promotes heart health. It also supports a healthy nervous system and the formation of healthy red blood cells.
Folate (as Metafolin ®) 400mcg, the body ready form of Folic Acid, is a B Vitamin which contributes to several processes within the body, but is best known for its support of maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Folic acid is a supplement which is advised to be taken by pregnant women and those trying to conceive. It can be found in different foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables, but to make sure you reach the adequate level of intake, especially before and after conception, taking a supplement is recommended.
Folic Acid is incredibly important for pregnant women and all women attempting to conceive and they should take at least 400mcg of folic acid per day as a supplement.
