New Roots Active Folic Acid
ʟ‑5‑Methyltetrahydrofolate helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken prior to conception and during early pregnancy. It also enables the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for cells to easily assimilate and use for energy creation within the mitochondria (cellular power-plant). Supplementing with active folic acid is critical, as many people have impaired function of the enzyme that transforms regular folic acid to this active form the body easily recognizes and exploits. Our formula includes vitamin B₁₂ and B₆ in the premium bioactive forms methylcobalamin and pyridoxyl-5′‑phosphate (P5P), that serve as cofactors for metabolic reactions throughout the body.
