Folate is an essential B complex vitamin for growth. Folate works to support heart health and bone strength. It promotes the brain’s release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that may support good moods. Folic acid may also support overall cellular health and protect the nervous system.
Women may benefit from folate due to its impact on fetal development. It may also support cervical health.
Every capsule provides 1,000 mcg. of folate in the form of Metafolin® L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate that is easier for your body to absorb and utilize than other types. Unlike naturally occurring folate, it doesn’t have to undergo enzymatic activation steps that may delay its effectiveness.
