What is Doctor’s Best Fully Active Folate?
Fully Active Folate supports healthy mood, memory, circulation and well-being. Fully Active Folate provides 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF) from Quatrefolic®, the active form used by the body for DNA regulation and other fundamental metabolic processes. The body cannot make folate on its own and must obtain it from foods or dietary supplements. Functional deficiencies are common and can impair key life processes including gene-level regulation, cell growth patterns and tissue repair — from before birth through old age.
How does it work?
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF) is the body’s ultimate resource for methyl groups (–CH3), which are essential for numerous enzymes that manage a complex web of metabolic pathways such as:
- Making DNA and repairing damaged DNA, and regulating gene activity via epigenetic actions.
- Recycling of the metabolite homocysteine, into methionine.
- Production of the hormone melatonin and the brain transmitter’s serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline.
- Wrapping of nerve cells with myelin protein, to optimize their electrical conductivity.
