Subject: Mega-Folinic - Bio-Active Form of Folic Acid
Bio-Active Form of Folic Acid
Through the folate cycle, Mega-Folinic™ helps to produce key methyl groups needed for numerous metabolic functions.
Supports DNA synthesis and homocysteine regulation.
Supports positive mood and healthy brain and neurological development.
Important for red blood cell formation, liver detoxification, and joint health.
Source Naturals Mega-Folinic ™ is a highly bioavailable source of folic acid. Folic acid is shown to benefit the arteries and cardiovascular system by preventing the build-up of the amino acid homocysteine. Folinic acid is already reduced and more rapidly converted into methylfolate (5-MTHF) so it is more active in the conversion of homocysteine to l-methionine. About 20% of the population have genetic difficulty in converting regular folic acid into the active form methylfolate. Through its role in the methylation cycle, it supports production of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), which in turn promotes healthy joints, DNA synthesis, liver detoxification, and a positive mood. Adequate folic acid may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect, making it an important supplement for women who are or intend to become pregnant.
Folinic acid is more rapidly transformed to 5,10-methylene-THF (L-Methyl folate) than folic acid where “the net effect on tissues of providing folinic acid (Mega Folinic) orally is essentially the same as feeding the coenzyme 5-MTHF.” (Metafolin)
