What is Doctor’s Best Fully Active Folate with Quatrefolic®?

Doctor’s Best Fully Active Folate with Quatrefolic®supports healthy mood, memory, circulation and well-being.* Fully Active Folate with Quatrefolic®provides 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF), 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. Methyl groups from MTHF are necessary for many life processes.

  • Synthesis of DNA, RNA and other molecular machinery for protein production.
  • Higher-level gene regulation via activation and deactivation (“epigenesis”).
  • Production of the hormone melatonin and the brain transmitter’s serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline.
  • Recycling of the potentially toxic metabolite homocysteine, into nontoxic methionine.
  • Wrapping of nerve cells with myelin protein, to optimize their electrical conductivity.
  • Supplying “one-carbon” groups (e.g., methyl) to drive numerous metabolic reactions.

Is this a neutral folate salt or is it still a version of folic acid?

This product is a neutral folate salt in that it has the glucosamine salt in it to make it more stable. There is no folic acid in this, but rather the FOLATE that is bio-identical to the most active form in the body. Folic Acid is the fully oxidized compound that has to be converted by the body to the active form.
