Advantageous features of calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate

The mass production of calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate marks the entry of folate supplementation into the active folate phase. Compared to inactive synthetic folic acid, calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate has three properties:
① Safety: Calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate is an endogenous base substance in the human body, so it does not cause allergic and other adverse reactions. Long-term application practice in Europe and the USA for more than ten years has shown that artificially manufactured:As long as the active folate is stable and pure enough, it is comparable to endogenous active folate.

②Efficacy: Calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate is superior to synthetic inactive folic acid (FOLIC ACID) in terms of effectiveness because synthetic inactive folic acid needs to be converted to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate by the enzyme folic acid metabolism in the body before it can be used. However, mutations in this key metabolizing enzyme result in different genetic types, resulting in a reduced ability to convert inactive synthetic folic acid to active folate in some populations.
The ability to convert inactive synthetic folate to active folate is reduced in some populations, resulting in impaired folate metabolism and impairing the normal biological effects of folate in the body. L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium, on the other hand, is not affected by the enzymatic conversion of folate metabolism and can be directly absorbed and utilised by all people, regardless of ethnicity or region, making the use of active folate more widely effective and a better choice for folate supplementation in people with impaired folate metabolism.

③Dosage assurance: The dose of active folate that can be obtained through conversion of inactive folate in the body is
limited and varies from population to population (genotype). Direct intake of calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate has no in vivo conversion and ensures rapid absorption of the ingested dose to obtain the exact dose required.
Magnafolate is the unique patent protected C crystalline L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate Calcium salt (L-5-MTHF Ca) which can get the purest and most stable bio-active folate.
Magnafolate can be absorbed directly, no metabolism, applied for all people.
