There are a few key differences between Activ-Folate & Folic Acid:
Active folate does not need to be broken down by the body through a complex enzymatic process the way that folic acid does. Stellar Activ-FOLATE is readily available for absorption by the body.
Many women are unable to metabolize folic acid and deficiency in folate can lead to complications. Folate is particularly vital in the early stages of pregnancy, as it helps reduce the risk of birth defects and neural tube defects in the fetus.
Stellar Activ-FOLATE contains a 3rd generation methylated folate called Active ExtraFolate-S (as 5-MTHF). Active Extrafolate-S does not need to be broken down by the body through a complex enzymatic metabolic process like conventional synthetic Folic Acid. This means that it is ready to be used by the body immediately.
Dosage and Directions for Use: Morning Take one Peach tablet daily, or as recommended by your Healthcare Professional.
