Active Folic Acid (l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) is critical for prenatal health, embryonic nervous system development, and protection from neural-tube deficiency.

l-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken prior to conception and during early pregnancy. It also enables the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for cells to easily assimilate and use for energy creation within the mitochondria (cellular power-plant). Supplementing with active folic acid is critical, as many people have impaired function of the enzyme that transforms regular folic acid to this active form the body easily recognizes and exploits. Our formula includes vitamin B12 and B6 in the premium bioactive forms methylcobalamin and pyridoxyl-5'-phosphate (P5P), that serve as cofactors for metabolic reactions throughout the body.

Supplementing with active folic acid has also been shown to reduce levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine has been associated with atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and reduced blood flow to the brain, which can contribute to depression.

New Roots Herbal’s Active Folic Acid is definitely a critical supplement for a healthy pregnancy, along with many other promising therapeutic applications.
