- Apr 13, 2018 -

Potency , also named free folate, is the assay of effective L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate in foalte salts.


Various forms of reduced folate are absorbed in the form of L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate in our body. Therefore, free folate is one of the important indicated factor for selecting a suitable folate.Compared with other commercial folate,  Magnafolate ® offer a more suitable free folate. Its theoretical potency is 92.4%, 

It can be calculated as following:

Magnafolate= 459.5/497.5=92.4%


459.5 matched to the molecular weight of L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate;

497.5matched to the molecular weight of Magnafolate®;

***In our commercial products, the free folate( assay of 6S-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate calculated on dry basis) of Magnafoalte® is range 89-95% since the assay is different in every batch.
