The naturally occurring and active form of vitamin B9 is methylfolate, and this is found in foods.

Methylfolate, unlike folic acid, can cross both cell membranes and blood-brain barriers, making it a far more convenient and effective form to utilize.

Folic acid is a man-made, synthetic form of folate. Once inside the body, folic acid needs to be converted to its active form, methylfolate. The problem is many of us don't convert folic acid to methylfolate efficiently and this man-made chemical is left to float around in the blood stream.

Due to the risks associated with taking synthetic folic acid it is safer and more effective to take the natural form.

Our Folic Acid has been expertly formulated by our nutritionist to ensure that the levels of nutrients included are effective and safe.
