Active Folate B12 Chewable combines the most active, stable, and highly bioavailable forms of folic acid (Quatrefolic® brand) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin)
Active Folate B12 Chewable is:
• The most stable, bioavailable and active form of folate and vitamin B12
• Recommended for methylation, cellular health, and child-bearing years/pregnancy*
• A preferred form of folate for the support of homocysteine management, heart health and nerve function*
• Gluten free
Methylcobalamin is the active form of B12. It does not have to be converted so it starts working right away. It’s also the form used to make methionine synthase, an enzyme that converts homocysteine into methionine. In fact 80% of B12 in the plasma is in the methylcobalamin form.
Quatrefolic® Quatrefolic® from Gnosis is a new generation of folic acid. It represents a breakthrough in folate supplementation with regard to activity, stability, and its high bioavailability when compared to folic acid. This form is easily utilized and stored in the body. Quatrefolic® uses a vegetarian sourced glucosamine salt and has been proven in both human animal studies to have greater bioavailability over calcium salt versions. It passes the gastric barrier and is absorbed mainly in the small intestine by an unsaturated carrier, which ensures a higher folate uptake. Another advantage is that Quatrefolic® is unlikely to mask
