Foli Pill™ Tablets

L-Methylfolate 400mcg


Description

Foli Pill™ contains folate in the form of L-Methylfolate which is the biologically active folate isomer. L-Methylfolate is the body’s preferred form of folate because it is directly usable by the human organism for certain metabolic processes. There are well documented studies which have established folic acid’s ineffectiveness regarding inherited disorders of folate transport and metabolism. These disorders limit and impair the capacity to ingest, digest, absorb or metabolize in a four step process by the body to become the biologically active L-Methylfolate. Unmetabolized level of folic acid were found in 78% of plasma samples from women given 400 mcg of folic acid per day. Unmetabolized folic acid has a high affinity to bind to the cellular folate transport mechanism. This has been shown to reduce the transfer of the active metabolite L-Methylfolate across the blood brain barrier.
