AOR Biofolate 1mg Details

  • Helps the body to metabolize proteins
  • Crucial in DNA/RNA synthesis   
  • Involved in the formation of RBCs
  • May help reduce the risks of neural tube defects in early pregnancy
  • In the preferred biologically active form

Folic Acid (Folate) is a very important vitamin that plays a key role in the biosynthesis of DNA and RNA, red blood cell production and the metabolization of proteins. Folic acid is also necessary for genome maintenance, the regulation of gene expression, and other functions. This is over and above the overwhelming amount of research supporting folic acid’s ability to prevent neural tube defects among expectant and potential mothers. 

Folic acid (or folate) is vitamin B9, a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in DNA and RNA synthesis, red blood cell production, the metabolism of proteins, and healthy genetic expression. BioFolate contains L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the active form of folate that is used in the body. A large percentage of the population has a certain gene mutation called MTHFR which renders them unable to convert dietary folate into the biologically active form, leading to folate deficiency. Taking folate in the form of L-5-MTHF ensures that even those with the MTHFR mutation are able to absorb the folate and avoid deficiency. BioFolate also contains a small amount of vitamin B12 in the active form of methylcobalamin, since folate supplementation can mask a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Folate deficiency can cause a number of health problems, of which the most documented is neural tube defects in developing infants. Symptoms of deficiency include: weakness, fatigue, irritability, headaches, difficulties in cognitive function, mood imbalances, cramps, palpitations, shortness of breath, and can lead to more serious health problems. Some conditions can actually lead to secondary folate deficiencies through decreased absorption or an increase in the body’s demand for folate. These include the MTHFR gene mutation, alcoholism, Crohn’s disease, lymphoma or amyloidosis of the small intestine, diabetic enteropathy, gluten sensitivity, sickle cell disease, chronic exfoliative skin disorders and of course, pregnancy.
