Knowing the facts about vitamin B12 is vital to your health. This essential micronutrient affects the development and maintenance of red blood cells, nerve cells, and normal myelination (covering) of nerve cells. It also aids in the production of DNA and RNA and the production of neurotransmitters.
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is the metabolically bioactive form of folate. The folic acid found in food has to be cleaved (digested) from protein carriers in order to be absorbed. This process is inefficient in some individuals. Once absorbed, dietary (and supplemental) folic acid has to then undergo several biochemical conversions (methylation) in the body to become 5-MTHF. Studies have shown that roughly one in three Americans have genetically inefficient enzymes that help create methyl folate. Bio Methylation Cream may assist with supplying the 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate for optimal help. *
