Jackie and I spent years searching for the best ingredients in our mult-vitamin product. It took a great deal of time and research to make sure every ingredient in and of itself, and in combination with the other ingredients was the best for our kids, and ultimately yours.
Our source for the activated folic acid comes from Quatrefolic© a company recognized as a leading expert in the area of folic acid and food folate.
Folic acid and also food folate are not biologically active and need to be converted to the metabolically active 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) through a multi-steps process where the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) owns a key role. Some individuals, due to their unique genetic patterns and expression, have polymorphic forms of this enzyme and do not produce adequate or effective MTHFR [1, 2, 3]. 1.
The key word is “active.” It insures the absorption of this important ingredient.
