helps maintain homocysteine levels
within the normal range, which promotes cardiovascular health. And it
supports neurotransmitter synthesis — which in turn helps maintain
abilities. However, not everyone has sufficient activity of the enzyme
to convert folate to its biologically active form,
5-MTHF. That’s why each vegetarian tablet of Optimized Folate provides
mcg of the bioactive 5-MTHF form of folate which is up to 7 times more
than ordinary folic acid.
