L-METHYL-FOLATE 1,000 MCG

 

Folate deficiencies are common as many individuals do not consume enough folate-rich foods, and dietary folates are readily destroyed by cooking or processing. Although typically included in multivitamins, some individuals do not effectively methylate and convert synthetic folic acid into its active form thus are still at risk of deficiency.

 

METHYL-MATE

 

Methylcobalamin or Methyl B12 is a form of vitamin B12 that is considered to be more absorbable and effectively utilized than other forms of B12. Adequate levels of Methyl B12 are needed to protect nerve tissue and maintain the myelin sheaths that cover the nerve endings.
