Folate (Vitamin B9) can deliver the right amount of methylfolate to support energy production, improved memory, and more. Methylfolate has been shown to be needed for synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which affect sleep and regulation of mood.
It's a must-have
Folate is a critical nutrient for methylation, a vital process required for life that occurs in every cell of your body. During pregnancy, folate supports a baby’s healthy neural tube development. But, it goes way beyond early development—affecting our physical and emotional health. It can influence mood, sleep, memory, and more.
Folic acid is the form commonly found in multivitamins because it is cheaper and more stable. Those with the MTHFR gene variation (> 60% of people) metabolize folic acid inefficiently or not at all. We only use methylfolate, the active form found in our bodies.
