Biofolate ® (L-5-Methytetrahydrofolate Ca, or L-5-MTHF Ca) is the metabolically active form of folic acid. The “folic acid” found in food has to be digested from protein carriers in order to be absorbed. This process is inefficient in some individuals. Once absorbed, the folic acid has to undergo several biochemical conversions in the body to become L-5-MTHF Ca. By supplementing with L-5-MTHF Ca, one can be assured of getting the benefits of folic acid, regardless of the individual’s ability to absorb or convert it to the active form. Biofolate® plays an important role in DNA synthesis and repair. It is especially beneficial for pregnant women to help protect against certain birth defects.* MTC is the exclusive supplier for Biofolate® and our material features an improved production process resulting in cost-efficient supply.
