Why Folate & Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 (also known as Methylcobalamin) is needed to process Folate in the body.
According to the NHS website:
Vitamin B12 and Folate perform several important functions in the body, including keeping the nervous system healthy.
A deficiency in either of these vitamins can cause a wide range of problems, including:
• extreme tiredness
• a lack of energy
• pins and needles (paraesthesia)
• a sore and red tongue
• mouth ulcers
• muscle weakness
• disturbed vision
• psychological problems, which may include depression and confusion
• problems with memory, understanding and judgement
What does Folate & B12 do?
Folate works closely with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and help iron work properly in the body.
Folate is natural (found in many green vegetables) whereas Folic Acid is synthetically produced. Folate in its biologically active form is called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). Research has shown that this is up to seven times more bioavailable than the synthetic equivalent, Folic Acid. Studies have also shown that its effectiveness can be further enhanced by co-supplementing it with Methylcobalamin (the active form of Vitamin B12).
Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, to normal functioning of the nervous system, to normal homocysteine metabolism as well as to normal psychological function. It can contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It has a role in the process of cell division and is necessary for healthy teeth, bones, hair, skin and nails. It is considered necessary to maintain energy and general vitality.
Methylcobalamin is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B12 such as Cyanocobalamin.
