Folate‚ also known as folic acid or vitamin B9‚ is a nutrient that works to support growth and cardiovascular health. It may also support a good mood by promoting your brain's release of serotonin‚ a neurotransmitter that can support relaxation.
Women may especially benefit from taking a folate supplement. It supports bone and cervical health‚ while also promoting healthy fetal development during pregnancy.
Since folate is water-soluble‚ your body can't store it for long periods of time. That means that you need to ensure daily intake though a combination of dietary sources and supplements such as Pure Encapsulations' Folate 400. Foods that contain folate include leafy green vegetables‚ nuts‚ seeds‚ organ meats‚ citrus fruits‚ and kidney beans. Unfortunately‚ the human body is only able to absorb about 50 percent of the folate you get through food.
Each vegetable capsule of this supplement provides 400 micrograms of folate. It comes in the form of Metafolin®. Metafolin® is a unique form of the vitamin‚ made to be identical to the natural form L-5-MTHF so that your body doesn't have to perform several activation processes before it becomes usable. As a result‚ it may be more bioavailable and easier for the body to absorb.
Perhaps most importantly‚ folate may help protect your cells. This includes the cells in your nervous system‚ as well as others. It helps form red blood cells‚ which transport oxygen throughout the body.
Take one or two capsules daily‚ with a meal. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle of Folate 400 by Pure Encapsulations should last from one-and-a-half to three months.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for Folate 400 - 90 Capsules
Since many people are reportedly unable to use folic acid and because it's nearly impossible to eat the recommended amount of folate (which makes me suspicious of the recommendations, to be honest) and because some people experience miracles with supplemental folate, I have used this. I can't say that I notice any difference, to be honest - neither good nor bad.
usable form of folate

I have been using this Folate 400 for my son for the last 2 months. We are using it to replace Metagenics Actifolate which was discontinued. I havent noticed any issues with the change so I can only assume that this is working just as well as the actifolate. I would recommend this. The capsules break open and mix well with liquid. My son hasnt had any adverse reaction to the taste (if there is one).
Easy to mix
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

I havent taken Folate yet but am happy to have found it I read a lot about health and understand that it is important to get folate rather than folic acid.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
