B12 Folate - Pure Encapsulations offers B12 Folate, combining these two powerhouse B vitamins. B12 and folate work together to support the nervous system, cardiovascular system and is crucial for fetal neural development. This product feature Metafolin. An extensive body of evidence indicates that adequate folate intake may provide significant cardiovascular, cellular and neural protection. However, genetic variations affecting activation and metabolism of supplemental folic acid are highly prevalent. In line with our commitment to consistently offer innovative, science-based ingredients, Pure Encapsulations has updated a number of products†, including our multivitamins, to provide Metafolin® (L-5-MTHF). Metafolin® is a naturally occurring, universally metabolized and active form of folate, L-5-MTHF. As such, it can be directly used in a diverse array of essential methylation reactions to support cardiovascular, neural and emotional health. Additionally, clinical evidence indicates that the bioavailability of Metafolin® is superior to folic acid. In a double-blind, randomized, placebocontrolled intervention study of 144 women of child-bearing age, 5-MTHF supplementation resulted in a greater accumulation of 5-MTHF in red blood cells than equimolar doses of folic acid.
 
B12 Folate provides optimum support for the GI tract, nervous system, and the metabolism of fats and protein.
What Is It?

B12 Folate is a combination of two water-soluble B vitamins, folic acid and vitamin B12. Folic acid is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5-MTHF is the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food. Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or genetic variations. The B12 in this formula is provided as methylcobalamin, the most bioavailable form of this vitamin.*

Uses For B12 Folate

Nutrient Metabolism: Folic acid and vitamin B12 are interrelated in function. They convert carbohydrates into energy and are vital in the metabolism of fats and protein. They play an important role in the maintenance of muscle tone in the GI tract and the integrity of skin, hair and the liver. They are also critical for maintaining red blood cell homeostasis and healthy homocysteine levels.*

Nervous System Health: Adequate folate status is critical for nucleic acid synthesis and neurotransmitter synthesis. At the molecular level, the main function of folate is to donate methyl groups in key biochemical reactions occurring in blood cells, neurons, the vasculature and many other tissues. In recent studies, methylcobalamin has demonstrated an enhanced ability to support neurological function. Vitamin B12 promotes protein synthesis for maintaining healthy nerve cells and myelin. Methylcobalamin may also help to moderate levels of glutamate in the brain, encouraging healthy brain cell activity, as well as memory, mood, and cognitive function. In general, vitamin B12 works with folate to promote DNA and red blood cell health.*

What Is The Source?

Metafolin®, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF) is synthetic. Methylcobalamin is produced from corn dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Metafolin® is a registered trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

What Customers Are Saying

I've taken this product for over a year now and am thoroughly satisfied. I'm pleased that this contains the most active form of B12 (methylcobalamin) and also that Pure Encapsulations manufactures its own supplements in the U.S.
My naturopath recommended I take B12 Folate by Pure Encapsulations to help with my energy levels. After one week of taking it in the morning, I felt more energy than I used to. The capsule is very small so it is easy to swallow. My energy levels seems to be associated with adrenal fatigue and B12 and folate are essential to recovery, so I recommend anyone trying to recover from adrenal fatigue give this supplement a try.
Have been buying your Green Drinks for a few years. Your service is great and the gals on the phone are good. Your Green Drinks taste good, mixes well with just a spoon. Keep up the good work.
