- Delivers 1,700 mcg of the B vitamin folate
Folate Promotes Heart and Brain Health
Folic acid is a common B-vitamin supplement. Folate helps maintain healthy homocysteine levels already within the normal range. Homocysteine levels are an important biomarker for both cardiovascular and cognitive health—so be proactive.
Folate, homocysteine & cardiovascular health
Folate helps maintain healthy homocysteine levels already within the normal range. By helping to inhibit excess homocysteine, folate supports healthy levels of this important cardiovascular health biomarker.
5-MTHF, homocysteine & cognitive health
Since people with elevated homocysteine levels have a greater risk of cognitive decline, getting enough folate is especially crucial for aging individuals attempting to maintain cognitive health.
Take alone or with B12 for enhanced effect
The RDA for folate for non-pregnant or lactating adults is 400 mcg a day. This formula delivers 1,700 mcg of 5-MTHF folate.

You can combine either formula with vitamin B12 in the form of methylcobalamin, vitamin B6 in either the pyridoxal 5’-phosphate or pyridoxine hydrochloride form, and/or riboflavin.
