Active Folate B12 Chewable
**Backordered - Expected ship date 4/23/21**
The most active, stable, and highly bioavailable forms of folic acid and vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) in a delicious, once-daily chewable.
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that affects nearly every system in our bodies, from blood cells, to nerve tissues, to DNA. When deficiencies are left untreated, permanent neurological damage and even death can result. While most people do get enough B12 from their diets, it is estimated that up to 20% of the population have a deficiency.
Folate (term used interchangeably with folic acid) is a member of the B vitamin family, and is required for healthy development of cells, brain function, and protection from cell damage. Folic acid may also play a role in managing menopausal vasomotor symptoms: multiple studies have shown that supplementing with folic acid can reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes and night sweats by up to 67%!
Folates are found in a wide variety of foods, but in unstable forms that are susceptible to oxidation, causing a rapid loss of activity during manufacture and storage. Common folic acid supplements require conversion by the body into an active form by an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate in order to be absorbed and utilized properly; however much of society is efficient in this enzyme due to digestive system challenges, poor liver function, and myriad lifestyle and diet choices. The patented Quatrefolic® brand of folate in the Active Folate B12 Chewable bypasses the need for enzymatic activation, making it readily available to be used by the body.
