Best Fully Active Folate provides MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate), the folate form most directly required for DNA regulation and other fundamental metabolic processes. Doctor's Best Fully Active Best Folate is the most bioactive MTHF available anywhere.

Doctor's Best Fully Active Folate supplies the B vitamin folate as (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid (MTHF). This is the body's most fully active folate nutrient, its most important folate reservoir, and the only folate form biochemically identical to the MTHF present in the body. This supplement features Quatrefolic, human-identical MTHF, as a glucosamine salt. This next-generation supplement guarantees the intricate MTHF structure with improved stability over the earlier-generation calcium salt of MTHF.
Named after the Latin word for leaf ("folium"), folate is the collective term for a family of pteroylglutamate nutrients that are most concentrated in leafy vegetables.3 The body cannot make folate on its own and must obtain it from foods or dietary supplements, with possible small contributions from intestinal bacteria. Foods supply only limited amounts of folates and these are generally not well absorbed. Of the folates that are absorbed, almost all are converted to MTHF.4 The Quatrefolic brand of MTHF in this supplement is the most stable and best-absorbed form available anywhere.
