Active Folic

Containing 400µg folic acid in a bioavailable form, Active Folic delivers 3X better absorption compared to standard folic acid.

About The Product

Active Folic supports normal blood formation during pregnancy. Up to 67% of the population are unable to convert folic acid to its metabolically active form. Active Folic provides L-Methylfolate a source of folic acid in its most active, occurring form. It delivers 3X better absorption compared to standard folic acid. Folic acid is water-soluble and is not stored in the body, so it needs to be consumed every day. Folic acid has a role to play in many functions in the body. This includes supporting immunity and normal blood formation. Folic acid is also an important nutrient during pregnancy, supporting maternal tissue growth. Active Folic contains the optimal dose of folic acid. This helps to reduce the risk of developing neural tube defects (NTD) in pregnancy.*

What is Active Folic?

Active Folic contains 400µg L-methylfolate, a more bioavailable form of folate. It’s designed to help support the body’s need for folate, a B-vitamin essential for cell division and DNA synthesis.

How does L-methylfolate differ from regular folic acid?

L-methylfolate is the active form of folate, which means the body can use it more efficiently than regular folic acid. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with certain genetic mutations that impair the body’s ability to convert folic acid into its active form.

Who can benefit from taking Active Folic?

Active Folic is beneficial for individuals who have difficulty converting folic acid into its active form. This includes individuals with certain genetic mutations, such as those with the MTHFR gene variant, as well as pregnant women or women planning to become pregnant, where folate is crucial for preventing neural tube defects in babies.

How should Active Folic be taken?

Active Folic should be taken once daily with water or juice, either with or without food.

Are there any side effects associated with Active Folic?

Active Folic is well-tolerated and does not cause gastrointestinal symptoms.

Is Active Folic safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?

Active Folic is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as it provides the necessary folate needed during these critical times.

Does Active Iron have folic acid?

Our Active Iron Women and Active Iron Pregnancy Plus product contains folic acid.
