Description

AOR BioFolate contains a combination of folic acid and vitamin B12 in their active forms. Folic acid (or folate) is vitamin B9, a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in DNA and RNA synthesis, red blood cell production, the metabolism of proteins, and healthy genetic expression. BioFolate contains L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the active form of folate that is used in the body. Folate deficiency can cause a number of health problems, of which the most documented is neural tube defects in developing infants. Symptoms of folate deficiency include: weakness, fatigue, irritability, headaches, difficulties in cognitive function, mood imbalances, cramps, palpitations, shortness of breath, and can lead to more serious health problems*. 

Additionally, a large percentage of the population has a certain gene mutation called MTHFR which renders them unable to convert dietary folate into the biologically active form, leading to folate deficiency. Taking folate in the form of L-5-MTHF ensures that even those with the MTHFR mutation are able to absorb the folate and avoid deficiency.  BioFolate also contains a small amount of vitamin B12 in the active form of methylcobalamin, since folate supplementation can mask a vitamin B12 deficiency.
