Folic acid must first be converted to its active form by a series of biochemical steps before it can be used by the body. Folate - Metafolin® (L-methylfolate) does not require conversion because it is bioidentical to the bioactive form.
In other words, it is "ready for the body." This may be useful for people whose bodies have difficulty converting folic acid into its active form. The active folate in this formulation promotes heart health. It also supports a healthy nervous system and the formation of healthy red blood cells.
