What are NutraFolate tablets?
NutraFolate tablets contain L-5 Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) which is a superior alternative to Folic Acid as it is a stable, safe and highly biologically active form of Folate (Vitamin B9). Unlike Folic Acid, L-5 Methyltetrahydrofolate doesn’t require an enzyme for its conversion. For this reason, L-5 Methyltetrahydrofolate is the best option particularly for those with MTHFR mutation, as they can’t metabolise Folic Acid. Deficiency of Folate leads to fatigue and tiredness, anaemia, painful mouth sores, poor memory, focus, low mood, depression and insomnia.
Vitamin B9 (Folate) contributes to the maintenance of healthy heart function, normal blood pressure, blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Folate can effectively keep blood homocysteine levels under control. Homocysteine is a type of amino acid that can contribute to the formation of blood clots and cause arteries to narrow and harden.
