In order to be able to perform important biological functions for our body, folic acid, which is supplied every day with a diet, needs to be enzymatically* transformed to its bioactive form – 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). However, often our population shows a mutation in a certain gene. The mutation causes a decrease or a significant reduction of the folate transformation to its bioavailable and bioactive form.
* MTHFR – methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase
Profolium is a food supplement containing an active form of folic acid, which does not need to undergo any further transformations. Thanks to that it is fully available to the body.
Folic acid belongs to the group of folates which contribute to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, to normal amino acid synthesis and to normal blood formation. Folate also has a role in the process of cell division and, what’s important, contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism.
