Info: 60 Tablets
Deficiencies in Folate or Folic Acid have been associated not only with a number of serious birth defects (particularly neural tube defects) at the start of life, but also with depression and cognitive decline later in life, where supplementation may help prevent problems (or at least their severity), as well. This type, l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, is in an active form the body can easily recognize and use right away, without having to transform it first with an enzyme whose function is impaired is some people. It has also been paired with the premium bioactive forms of vitamins B6 and B12, which work with B9 in many metabolic functions, including in controlling the blood levels of homocysteine, a by-product of protein metabolism which has been associated with reduced blood flow to the brain, depression, and cognitive decline.
Product Notes:Product label is slightly different than the one shown (which is for the Capsules; the ones sold here are Tablets).
Vitamin B9, also known as Folate (if naturally in food) or Folic Acid (if a supplement or a food additive), has many functions in the body, including helping convert foods into glucose to produce energy; helping the brain and nervous system function properly; and especially helping the production of our genetic material, DNA and RNA -- which is why pregnant women and those planning to conceive are advised to take it. Folate is water soluble, so we do not store it but have to continue to take it in, and some populations are more likely to be deficient in it even if it is in their foods (including alcoholics, celiacs, those with inflammatory bowel disease, and those on certain medications).
