Methylfolate and Folate:
Methylfolate is the predominant Folate found in food such as leafy green vegetables and is a form that can be used directly by the body. This is a natural Folate and very different in structure and function from isolated folic acid, the most commonly sold supplemental form, which does not occur naturally in foods.
If our metabolism is working correctly folic acid is converted to methylfolate, (a wholly safe and beneficial nutrient) by our body. But often this process is not efficient and un-metabolised folic acid, which is not necessarily beneficial, remains in the body.
Food is the major source of Folates. However in a large percentage of the population Folate intake from food is insufficient for health. An adequate intake of Folate is essential for the prevention of many disorders such as anaemia neural tube defects, various forms of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, colon cancer and depression.
Methylfolate and Pregnancy:
Folic Acid/ Folate is of particular importance for pregnant women and women planning pregnancy. The UK Department of Health have stated:
“Women who are planning a pregnancy, or might become pregnant, or who are already pregnant, should also take folic acid and vitamin D supplements.”
As Methylfolate is the most natural, stable, safe and bioeffective form of Folate (Folic Acid) it is ideal as a supplement for pregnant women and women planning pregnancy.
