We are happy to welcome you after these months where we've only been able to keep connected with virtual events. Come join us at the in-person event Vitafoods Europe 2021 on October 5-7, at Palexpo in Geneva, to discover Quatrefolic® science at booth B90.
During the event, our expert Luca Tiano, Professor of Nutrigenetic and Nutrigenomic at the Polytechnic University of Marche, will highlight the characteristics of the active form of folate (Quatrefolic® ) versus folic acid's, the synthetic form of folate. Illustrating by numerous clinical studies and applications, this speaking session will be the opportunity to end the confusion around the hot-topic question: Which form of folate is better?

In the past few years, clinical studies have highlighted increasing pieces of evidence of the advantages of reduced folate vs folic acid. This knowledge has raised an important question: which form of folate is better?
Vitafoods Europe 2021 will be the opportunity to present you with some key elements of the answer.
How is Quatrefolic® an Innovative Form of Nutrition?
In the form of the glucosamine salt of 5-MTHF, Quatrefolic® reveals significant advantages over calcium salt and the previous folate generations, like high solubility and enhanced bioavailability.
Compared to standard folic acid, Quatrefolic® doesn’t lead to accumulation of Unmetabolized Folic Acid (UMFA) in the blood, which has no biological function and whose effects are not yet known.
Quatrefolic® is recommended to efficiently normalize homocysteine levels and the folate status of all potential individuals including people with MTHFR polymorphism.
Quatrefolic® does not mask vitamin B12 deficiency and, this results in tangible advantages and safer profile vs standard folic acid – especially in the critical age group of the elderly who are very often deficient in folate.
