The great importance of folate at all stages of life is well known: the elderly, women, adults and even children can benefit from the intake of folate to prevent many states of disease.
Among the various problems caused by folate deficiency, cognitive impairment is a considerable health concern due to the exponential increase of aging population and is dictated by a large range of variables; some due to environmental factors, such as diet, and others due to genetics, such as the polymorphisms of methylentetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) that impairs the folate conversion in the body.
Clinical research states that a daily supplementation with folate helps improving cognitive performances, including memory and information processing.
Therefore, the effective intake of folate plays a significant role, as folic acid is not biologically active and must be metabolized in order to be absorbed. As a result, for those individuals with MTHFR polymorphism, folic acid may be difficult to assimilate.
|Quatrefolic®, being the reduced and active form of folic acid, maximizes folate supplementation by offering a "finished" folate that the body can immediately use without any metabolization process.|
Quatrefolic® is also recommended to those individuals who, due to their unique genetic patterns and expression, are affected by MTHFR enzyme polymorphism and do not produce adequate or effective Methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), thus encountering all health problems associated with the lack of vitamin B9.
