Folate 400 - 90 capsules

Folate 400 by Pure Encapsulations is the activated, natural form of folate. It can be used by those with MTHFR mutations as it bypasses the enzyme and does not pose risks as synthetic folic acid does.


Product Details


Folate is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyl- tetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5-MTHF is the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food. Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or genetic variations.

Uses For Folate
Cellular Health: An extensive body of evidence indicates that adequate folate intake may provide significant cardiovascular, cellular and neural protection. However, genetic variations affecting activation and metabolism of supplemental folic acid are highly prevalent. Metafolin is a naturally occurring universally metabolized and active form of folate, L-5- MTHF. As such, it can be directly used in a diverse array of essential methylation reactions. Additionally, clinical evidence indicates that the bioavailability of Metafolin is superior to folic acid. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled intervention study of 144 women of child-bearing age, 5-MTHF supplementation resulted in a greater accumulation of 5-MTHF in red blood cells than equimolar doses of folic acid. Adequate folate status is critical for nucleic acid synthesis and neurotransmitter synthesis. At the molecular level, the main function of folate is to donate methyl groups in key biochemical reactions occurring in blood cells, neurons, the vasculature and many other tissues.
