Have you been trying different Folate supplements but finding them ineffective? Utilising the revolutionary Quatrefolic technology, this new Folate supplement offers the most bioactive, easily absorbable form of that vital vitamin yet. Suitable for young women and expectant mothers alike, this is the future of Folate supplements.
Hidden deep within the B Vitamin complex (there are eight in total!) are Folates. In this instance, it is often referred to as vitamin B9 but for the sake of clarity we will refer to it as Folic Acid or Folates.
Confusing names aside, Folates are actually surprisingly abundant. Ordinarily a diet high in green vegetables such as cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli will suffice your Folic Acid levels. Alternatively, milk and other dairy products would do a similar job. However, Folic Acid is one of the few vitamins that healthcare professionals still specifically recommend additional supplementation for people at any stage in their lives.
Unfortunately Folates found in foods are incredibly susceptible to oxidation. This makes them unstable especially when subjected to food processing where they can have a diminished bioactivity range of 25-50%.
Over the course of just three days, fresh leafy vegetables which have been stored at room temperature can lose up to 70% of their Folate activity while cooking them can increase that loss to 95%
Folate is what is known as an essential nutrient because we cannot synthesise it in our bodies. We have to find a dietary source. However, even modern supplements can prove inferior, which is why Swanson have turned to the unique technology of Quatrefolic, a fantastic new way to guarantee that you're getting the Folate your body so desperately needs.
What makes Quatrefolic technology so special is its innovative ability to deliver nutritive care in all the areas the body requires Folic acid and Folate supplementation. And because this water-soluble B-complex vitamin is absolutely vital for the maintenance of cellular functions and health, getting the proper supplementation is crucial.
Ranking as one of the most common vitamin deficiencies, Folate depletion is common in almost anyone, regardless of your diet. As the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydroFolate, this supplement is structurally analogous to both the active and reduced form of folic acid.
In other words, Swanson Ultra Folate 5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid is the closest form of Folate to the one your body breaks all other Folate sources down into. Often referred to as the 'fourth generation Folate, it provides superior stability, higher water solubility and formulation flexibility to that of 5-methyltetrahydroFolate calcium salt.
