Pure Encapsulations Folic Acid
offers support for pregnant women and the development process. There is an extensive body of evidence indicates that adequate folate intake may provide significant cardiovascular, cellular and neural protection. However, genetic variations affecting activation and metabolism of supplemental folic acid are highly prevalent. Metafolin is a naturally occurring universally metabolized and active form of folate, L-5-MTHF. As such, it can be directly used in a diverse array of essential methylation reactions. Additionally, clinical evidence indicates that the bioavailability of Metafolin is superior to folic acid. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled intervention study of 144 women of child-bearing age, 5-MTHF supplementation resulted in a greater accumulation of 5-MTHF in red blood cells than equimolar doses of folic acid. Adequate folate status is critical for nucleic acid synthesis and neurotransmitter synthesis. At the molecular level, the main function of folate is to donate methyl groups in key biochemical reactions occurring in blood cells, neurons, the vasculature and many other tissues. Recommended use:
1 capsule per day with a meal or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Folic Acid supports the breakdown and utilization of proteins. Folic Acid also helps the growth and reproduction of healthy blood cells and promotes healthy fetal neural development.
*What Is It? Folic acid, is a water-soluble B vitamin that converts in the body to the coenzyme tetrahydrofolic acid (THFA) by accepting and donating single carbon groups. This is referred to as “one-carbon metabolism”, a vital step in the process of DNA formation. THFA is involved in a number of additional key metabolic reactions. It supports the healthy metabolism of amino acids, particularly the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Furthermore, folic acid functions with vitamin B12 and ascorbic acid in the breakdown and utilization of proteins.
** Uses For Folic Acid Healthy Fetal Neural Development:
Folic acid is an integral factor involved in the formation of nucleic acids and the production of healthy DNA and chromosomes. In particular, this B vitamin is critical for the proper neural and cellular development of the fetal central nervous system. Folic acid promotes healthy cellular differentiation during the formation of the brain and spinal cord, helping to prevent neural tube defects. Additionally, folic acid is important for the growth and reproduction of red and white blood cells. Healthy Homocysteine Metabolism:
Folic acid helps to support healthy homocysteine metabolism, primarily in conjunction with vitamins B12 and B6.
