Life Extension Optimized is the highest quality diet supplement containing optimized folate, i.e. the bioactive form of folic acid 5-MTHF (5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate).
The biologically active form of folate - L-Methylfolate (5-MTHF) is much more effective than folic acid, which is a synthetically oxidized form of folate. L-Methylfolate provides maximum support for both cardiovascular health and cognitive functions. It is recommended to combine supplementation of 5-MTHF with methylcobalamin (B12) and vitamin B6.
Many studies indicate that a huge part of the population (about 50%) suffers from genetic deficits of enzymes (such as MTHFR) that prevent the body from properly metabolizing folic acid to the forms of coenzymes needed for the proper functioning of the body, all of them should provide folic acid in a bilogically active form using the Extension Life Highate Extension Folate.
Folic acid contributes to the growth of maternal tissues during pregnancy, helps in the proper synthesis of amino acids and in the proper production of blood, and also participates in the process of cell division.
In addition, folic acid:
- helps in maintaining proper homocysteine metabolism
- helps in maintaining proper psychological functions
- helps in the proper functioning of the immune system
-takes to reduce tiredness and fatigue
