Each vegetarian tablet of High Potency Optimized Folate by Life Extension provides 5,000 mcg of the metabolically active 5-MTHF form of folate.

Folate helps maintain homocysteine levels within the normal range,1 thereby promoting cardiovascular health.2 Folate also supports neurotransmitter synthesis-which in turn, helps maintain cognitive abilities.3 However, not everyone has sufficient activity of the enzyme required to convert folate to its biologically active form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, or 5-MTHF.4,5

For those whose homocysteine levels remain stubbornly high, the answer lies with the bioactive form of folate called 5-MTHF, which is up to seven times more bioavailable than ordinary folic acid.6 This unique compound requires no enzymatic conversion to become metabolically active6-providing maximum support for both cardiovascular and cognitive health.
