Active Folate for Cardiovascular System Support from NuMedica Methyl Folate 5-MTHF
NuMedica Methyl Folate 5-MTHF is designed with the most active form of biologically active folate to support the cardiovascular system, nervous system, and homocysteine metabolism. This powerful methyl folate supplement provides therapeutic levels of activated folate; activation means that the body does not need to convert it for use in the body. Instead, it's ready to get to work and provide optimum support for essential systems of your body.
The Importance of Folate for Your Body
Folate, or vitamin B9, plays an important role in your body and health. First, it converts homocysteine into an essential amino acid. While homocysteine itself is an amino acid, an elevated level of it is associated with an increased risk for heart attack. In this way, folate helps support the health of the cardiovascular system by reducing the risk for both heart attack and stroke.
In addition, folate is an important support for fetal development. Developing infants can experience neural tube defects if their mothers do not have an optimum level of folate early on in their pregnancies. These defects can lead to miscarriage or infants may be born with spina bifida. By increasing folate intake several months before conception, women can better guard against neural tube defects in their developing infants.
Studies also suggest that folate encourages healthy cholesterol levels, provides neurological support, and may even help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
Methyl Folate 5-MTHF Supports Cardiovascular and Nervous System Health
Folate supplementation supports healthy cardiovascular function, healthy nervous system function and assists in maintaining proper homocysteine metabolism.* Additionally, folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of congenital malformations including neural tube defects (malformations of the spine, skull, and brain).
