Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) needs to be methylated (converted) in order to become its active form: 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. The liver and intestines are responsible for this process to take place naturally. The resulting 5-MTHF can be found in blood and the tissues in which it is utilized. Interestingly, a high percentage of people – up to 60% in some countries – have a genetic enzyme defect preventing them from converting Folic Acid to 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate. For these people, supplementing with 5-MTHF may be the only effective option. 5-MTHF is also useful for supporting mood as it aids normal neurotransmitter production, such as serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, adrenalin and noradrenalin.
Recommended daily dose: 10 drops taken with breakfast.

Discover latest Quatrefolic® Science UP – The roles of the biologically active form of folate in pregnancy
DESIO, Italy – February 28th, 2020
Gnosis by Lesaffre continues its project of bringing end-manufacturers and consumers to the deep science aspects on the role of folate in human health, outlining and showing the most recent data published on the active folate form – the 5-MethylTetraHydroFolate (5-MTHF) – and consequently adding precious information on the science behind Quatrefolic® and all features that make it the right choice!
A further evidence that choosing the right folate, such as Quatrefolic®, can definitely make a difference: Quatrefolic® provides the right folate dosage, it does not require metabolism of the MTHFR enzyme, it is ready to enter human metabolism and, if necessary, normalizes homocysteine plasma levels.
In the new and just issued number of “Science UP” you will discover how Quatrefolic® plays an important role in human growth and development during pregnancy, with dedicated focus on the role of the methylentetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphism in pregnancy issues.
