Healthy Origins Methyl Folate Description

Healthy Origins® BioActive Methyl Folate (featuring Quatrefolic®) is the more stable, more bioavailable and more soluble form of folate. Traditional folic acid supplements are not biologically active and need to be converted to the metabolically active 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) form. This conversion is done through a multi-step process in the body where the enzyme Methylentetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) plays 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. Inadequate or ineffective MTHFR enzyme production makes the conversion of folic acid to active 5-MTHF very difficult.*

FAQ

What is Methyl Folate used for?

Methyl Folate is used to replenish Folate levels which when depleted can cause certain types of anaemia. It is especially important during pregnancy when folate demand increases (prevents neural tube defects).

Is Methyl Folate the same as Folic Acid?

Yes and No. Folic Acid is a synthetic form of Folate that needs to be converted to a more active form while Methyl Folate is the more natural and biologically active form that your body can utilize easier. People with the MTHFR gene mutation will lead to accumulation of unmetabolized folic acid and can lead to toxicity.

How much Methyl Folate should I take?

Typical dose range for Folate is around 400mcg to 5mg, depending on your condition. For example, in pregnancy, 400mcg daily is recommended but for someone who is on methotrexate, you'll need around 5mg once a week. Everyone is different and unless you're using it for general health, you should double check with a health professional.

Who should take Methyl Folate?

Pregnant women and people with low folate levels such as people on certain medications, on a low vegetable/fruit diet, chugging alcohol all day should consider Methyl Folate.
