What is Folic Acid Deficiency?


Folic acid is an essential micronutrient, which can be derived from food sources. The main sources of folic acid or folate include dark leafy green vegetables, liver, yeast, asparagus and Brussels sprouts (1). Other sources of folic acid include fruits, nuts, beans, grain products, and more. The lack of this essential micronutrient is referred to as a folic acid deficiency. Folic acid is very important to the human body. It plays an active role in the formation of hemoglobin and helps in the synthesis of nucleic acids in red blood cells. It’s easily absorbed via the portal vein from the small intestine and passed on to tissues through overall body circulation. Understanding the leading causes of folic acid deficiency is...

Learn about the Benefits of L-Methylfolate Supplements


Before we explain the benefits of L-Methylfolate supplements for overall health, we have to understand what the supplements actually are and what their main role is in our body. In the widest sense, folate and folic acid fall under the category of nutrients that are very important for the healthy functioning of our bio pathway systems. These elements are crucial for our health, which means that any imbalance in their levels can lead to serious health complications and unwanted symptoms. This is particularly common among people who have a specific genetic mutation, known as MTHFR, because their body is not able to use folate as it should. In most cases, there are a limited number of things we can do...

Quatrefolic 5-MTHF is the Best Solution for Folate Deficiency


There are many reasons why people may suffer from folate and folic acid deficiency, and only a few effective ways of treating it. One of the best remedies we can use these days for the folic acid supplementation is “Quatrefolic 5-mthf”. It sounds complicated when we say Quatrefolic 5-mthf, but it is nothing more than the active form of folate (l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate). Actually, the simplest way to explain it to say this is the most readily absorbable form of vitamin B9 or folate.  It’s actually the only form your body can directly use. First of all, folic acid and food folates are not biologically active forms. They must be converted to 5-MTHF (or L-5-MTHF) in order to become metabolically active. Of...

How does Methylated Folate Work in your Body?


Folate is a naturally occurring nutrient and it helps the human body to perform some of its essential functions. It activates, repairs and synthesizes DNA in the. Folate assists in cell division as well as red blood cell production. It is also needed for the proper development of the fetus in the first trimester of pregnancy. (2) But what is methylated folate? The active form of folate that your body uses directly is referred to as methylated folate. The human body cannot produce folate on its own, so it must be ingested in order for it to be present in the body. Dietary folate has to be broken down by the body to make it active and absorbable so that...

What’s the Buzz Surrounding Folic Acid, Folate, Methylfolate, and MTHFR?


It’s no secret that pregnant women need folate/folic acid in order to deliver healthy babies. The women who do not take folate during pregnancy have a higher risk of delivering a baby with a neural tube defect (NTD). It’s very early in the pregnancy when the neural tube closes, which is why women should consider consuming folate as early as possible. The reasons why women often don’t get enough folate are multi-faceted, but not eating enough leafy greens can be a cause (which gets complicated by the fact that our food supply can often be short on important nutrients). Getting folic acid from supplements or in fortified foods as well as genetic mutations are two other factors that complicate the...
