Vitamin B11 - Folic acid (elemental) - 200 mcg
In the form of Calcium L-methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF) - 0.223 mg
Vitamin B deficiencies are common, so a safe supplementation is justified.
For all B vitamins, it is recommended to take a B complex instead of individual B vitamins. These work in synergy with each other and a complex ensures that the underlying relationships are in balance.
Folic acid plays an essential role in the synthesis of DNA / RNA, cell division and the formation of the neural tube during pregnancy.
Folic acid occurs naturally in a balanced diet, but deficits are often observed. There are 2 variants used in supplementation: the PMG (pteroyl monoglutamic acid) and the MTHF (Methyltetrahydrofolate). The second molecule is preferable because the first, PMG, must first be converted to MTHF by the intestinal wall cells. Folic acid should remain in balance with B12.
Considering Bodhi's supportive and maintenance function, 100% of the RDA has been chosen.
