  • FolaPro by Metagenics features Metafolin®‚ which is the most bioavailable form of folate called L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). This supplement is an excellent source of L-5-MTHF‚ a metabolically active form of folate that helps ensure that all of the critical benefits of folate nutrition are realized. Since it’s already active‚ this form of folate does not require any additional metabolic steps in order for it to be used by the body.

    FolaPro provides the nutrition necessary to support many metabolic processes‚ including nervous system functioning‚ hormone metabolism‚ homocysteine metabolism‚ and DNA synthesis.

    Many Americans are born with a genetic variation that causes their bodies to improperly utilize folic acid. However‚ almost everyone can benefit from this supplement.

    The Importance of Folic Acid

    Folic acid is crucial to a biochemical process called methylation. This process refers to the transfer of methyl groups‚ which takes place billions of times every day. Methyl groups are simply one carbon bound to three hydrogen atoms. This process may sound uncomplicated‚ but it is essential to your health. Methyl groups are purposely placed on some genes to ensure they remain inactive‚ which protects your overall health.

    When you eat foods that are rich in folic acid‚ the body has to work in order to get its benefits. First‚ it has to be absorbed. Then it has to undergo many biochemical conversions before it becomes L-5-MTHF. About one in three Americans don’t have the enzymes necessary to help the body create L-5-MTHF; therefore‚ they do not get the benefits of eating folic acid‚ an essential nutrient.

    Whether you have this issue or not‚ supplementing with FolaPro can help ensure that you’ll get the benefits of folic acid. The L-5-MTHF plays a vital role in DNA repair and synthesis. L-5-MTHF (Metafolin in FolaPro) also plays a vital role in metabolizing serotonin and dopamine; because of this‚ a folic acid deficiency can lead to mood swings or sadness. The active form of folate also plays an important role in detoxification‚ including ridding the body of common environmental toxins. Since histamine is also eliminated through this process‚ a folic acid deficiency may also contribute to more allergic reactions.

    In order to ensure that you are getting all of the benefits from your folic acid supplementation‚ you should supplement with the active form of folic acid‚ such as the Metafolin found in FolaPro. Each bottle of Metagenics’ FolaPro contains 120 tablets.

    Metagenics creates innovative supplements that help people overcome the symptoms of chronic diseases and maintain their health. Quality and research is paramount‚ and has been since the company was founded in 1983. All active ingredients in Metagenics products have been demonstrated effective by third-party scientists.

    great product

    I use this product to help increase my kids tolerances to naturally occurring food chemicals called amines. It makes a noticeable difference in just a couple of days (helps with methylation which is one of the main ways in which amines are processed in the body). I do wish it were a cheaper but I will continue to purchase it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great price

    My kinesiologist put me on this about 6 years ago and it is a better price here at Pure Formulas than the discounted price he had in his office. Plus this is a 120 count bottle rather than a 60 count. Much better price with the bigger bottle. This shipping was fast & free and the ordering process was very simple.

    Pros

      Bigger bottle/less price per tab free shipping.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    quality

    After lab tests revealed that vitamin B was not being absorbed my system this is a supplement that has been recommended by my personal family physician. I have noted a more calming effect and a reduced desire for sugar and alcohol. One a day in the morning seems to do it.

    Better form of folic acid

    Ive been taking FolaPro for the past couple of months after my nutritional consultant recommended it to me after some blood work showed my red blood cell count was low. Apparently this is a more readily absorbed kind of folic acid and I have definitely noticed an increase in my energy level. I havent retested yet but I am feeling much better!

    Pros

      reasonably priced

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
