Folate as L-methylfolate, Metafolin® 1,000 mcg
Methyl Folate provides 1,000 mcg of Metafolin®, a patented form of (6S)5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine.
