Active folic acid (ʟ-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) is critical for prenatal health, embryonic nervous-system development, and protection from neural-tube deficiency.
ʟ-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate helps reduce the risk of neural-tube defects when taken prior to conception and during early pregnancy. It also helps with body-tissue growth and renewal; in addition, it enables the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. This makes it possible for cells to easily assimilate and use nutrients for energy creation within their mitochondria (cellular power plants). Supplementing with active folic acid can also prove beneficial for many people with impaired function of the enzyme that transforms regular folic acid to this active form the body easily recognizes and exploits. Our formula includes vitamins B12 and B6 in their premium bioactive forms, methylcobalamin and pyridoxal-5′-phosphate (P5P). These vitamins serve as cofactors for metabolic activity throughout the body.
New Roots Herbal’s Active Folic Acid is definitely a critical supplement for a healthy pregnancy, along with many other promising therapeutic applications.
