4th Generation Folic Acid Technology
The More Stable, More Bioavailable Form of Folate
Methyl Folate ((6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid or (6S)-5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic® is the 4th generation development in folate delivery. With certain inherited errors in metabolism and physiologic stresses, the transformation of folic acid into the active form of folate is inadequate.* Unlike folic acid, 5-MTHF can cross the blood-brain barrier.
HEALTH CLAIM: Healthful diets with adequate folic acid may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with certain brain or spinal cord defects.
Suggested Usage: Take 1 capsule per day with food or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
NOTE: The elderly should frequently check B12 status when taking folic acid as folic acid may mask pernicious anemia.
