For your brain and nervous system to function correctly‚ a complex set of interactions between neurotransmitters and other metabolic processes must occur. Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that play a role in how you think and learn; they allow physical functions and control your mood.
There are different types of neurotransmitters that support healthy brain function‚ and each is impacted by chemicals derived from the food you eat. One of these chemicals is folate‚ a water-soluble form of the B vitamin folic acid. Folate is especially important during pregnancy‚ since it supports fetal growth and development. Folate deficiency can easily occur if you have a diet high in processed or cooked foods‚ since processing destroys the vitamin. Kidney problems‚ poor nutrient absorption‚ or taking certain medications may also cause you to be deficient in folate. In adults‚ low folate levels can lead to weakness‚ appetite loss‚ and headaches. In infants and children‚ folate deficiency can slow growth and negatively impact brain health.
Generically known as folate‚ 5-MTHF (5-methyl tetrahydrofolate) may help your body convert folic acid into usable compound. Folate is stored in the red blood cells‚ and those levels have been shown to increase when supplemented with 5-MTHF. Normal cell division‚ DNA methylation‚ and nervous system function all require folate‚ so taking a 5-MTHF supplement like Xymogen’s 5-MTHF may support the health of your baby. These vegetable capsules can also be useful for those individuals with an enzyme defect that interferes with folic acid absorption. If you're suffering from anemia or other symptoms of folic acid deficiency‚ 5-MTHF may provide relief; in addition‚ it may play a role in good oral health.
Each serving of 5-MTHF Vegetable Capsules provides 1‚000 mcg of folic acid in a bioactive formula that’s easy for your body to convert and absorb. This supplement contains no allergens‚ magnesium stearate‚ or artificial additives. When taken at the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of 5-MTHF by Xymogen should last you for one to two months.
Xymogen products provide pure dosages of the nutrients you need. Their supplements are available in forms far easier to swallow than the average tablet.
