Natural Folate Support for Cardiovascular Health
Douglas Laboratories' Methyl Folate L-5-MTHF provides 1,000 mcg of biologically active folate to support cardiovascular health.
A water-soluble essential B vitamin, folate, or B-9, is found in such foods as leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans.
Water soluble means that this B vitamin dissolves in water in your body and excess amounts are excreted in your urine. As such, it is essential that you consume sufficient amounts of folate in your diet every day to keep your body healthy.
And folate supplementation prior to and during the first two months of pregnancy can support proper neurological development in an unborn baby.
Additionally, folate plays an important role in the metabolism of homocysteine. High levels of this sulfur containing amino acid may damage your blood vessels.
Folate also works with vitamin B-12 to produce new red blood cells, which transport oxygen to, and carbon dioxide from, your body's tissues. Your body also depends on folate to manufacture DNA, the genetic material in all of your cells.
Finally, folate combines with vitamins B-12 and C to enable your body to break down proteins and synthesize new ones.

And unlike with synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for any additional conversions.
