Natural Folic Acid - Methylfolate by Doctor's Best
Methylfolate with Quatrefolic® is a very stable, natural form of folic acid that is optimally absorbed by the body. This B vitamin, vitamin B11, is very essential for all kinds of bodily processes. It benefits pregnant women because it contributes to the growth of the unborn child, it has a beneficial effect on the immune system, on the production of blood cells, on cell renewal, it supports fatigue and stress, and it contributes to a normal homocysteine metabolism. In some countries, folic acid is called vitamin B9.
Quatrefolic® methylfolate is stable

What is the difference between folic acid and folate?
Folic acid, or pteroylmonoglutamic acid, is the synthetic, oxidized form of the natural though unstable folate (tetrahydrofolate). Folate is found in food and is used by the body. Folic acid is very stable and is therefore widely used in dietary supplements. Folic acid must be converted in the body across several steps before it can be used. First it is converted into tetrahydrofolate and then, via a methylation cycle, into the active form of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). This enzyme requires certain enzymes: the so-called MTHFR enzyme activity. Quatrefolic® methylfolate (5-MTHF) can support this activity. The body can therefore directly use this active form of B11. Quatrefolic® is a very stable form of folate with a high bioavailability.
During pregnancy or family planning, and for the elderly
Doctor's Best Methylfolate from Doctor's Best contains only natural methylfolate from the Quatrefolic® brand. Due to its safety profile and excellent absorption, this product is very suitable for target groups with an increased need for folic acid / folate, including women who want to become pregnant, women who are already pregnant, as well as elderly.
5-MTHF is an important methyl donor
5-MTHF is an important source of the body for what are called methyl groups (CH3). Methyl groups are essential in a process called methylation, which happens continuously in every cell in the body. Methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group (CH3: one carbon and three hydrogen atoms) to proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. Via methylation, the functioning of the body is regulated through numerous biochemical processes and metabolic pathways. Thus, 5-MTHF methyl groups are essential for numerous life processes throughout the body.
Guaranteed 6 (S) -5-methyltetrahydrofolate
Folate can be found on the market under various names in various supplements. However, only the L and 6 (S) forms are bioactive. The D and 6 (R) forms are not bioactive. Doctor's Best Methylfolate with Quatrefolic® contains the active form of 6 (S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate.
