Folate and B12 are vital to multiple bodily functions, including supporting methylation, contributing to red blood cell formation, as well as aiding efficient energy metabolism and healthy psychological function. A deficiency in either of those nutrients can cause low energy and general fatigue, anaemia, memory problems, and in the case of B12, neurological problems.
Some people are more at risk of deficiency, this includes:
- The elderly, because of poor nutrition, lack of appetite and impaired digestion
- People with gastrointestinal disorders, especially Crohn’s disease or coeliac disease
- Individuals with higher needs, e.g. pregnant and breastfeeding women or those with a chronic condition
- People with pernicious anaemia – an autoimmune condition that significantly reduces B12 absorption
- Vegans and vegetarians – especially for B12 as it is only found in animal products
- People taking stomach acid blocking medications such as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs).
- In addition, when it comes to folate, even a seemingly good, folate-rich diet, may not provide enough for your needs. Folate is prone to deterioration and the form of folate found in vegetables is relatively difficult to absorb.
So, what is so special about our Nutrisorb® Liquid Methyl FolGuard®?
- It provides folate in the very best metabolically active and stable form, called Quatrefolic® - not even all forms of methylfolate are made equal.
- It is provided with equal amounts of vitamin B12 in the most bioavailable methyl form. Folate and B12 work together to promote methylation.
- It is an easy to absorb liquid, combining the active nutrients with purified water, which makes it incredibly hypoallergenic, and simple if you are sensitive to supplements.
- It is perfect for individuals who have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules, such as children or the elderly, or those with digestive and absorption difficulties.
- You can take it straight under the tongue, mix into water, smoothie or another drink.
- It provides 100mcg of each nutrient per dose, perfectly balanced to optimise methylation, and making it easy to dose according to your needs or a recommendation by a health practitioner.
- It is very flexible – you can combine it with other nutrients and take exactly what you need.
- It is a vegan formula.
- It is very cost-effective, lasting for up to 100 days, if you use 4 drops a day. That makes it only 23 pence per day!
- It is provided in a very convenient, small bottle, which makes it easy to use on the go whenever you need it.
What is Quatrefolic®?
- Quatrefolic® is almost twice as bioavailable as other methylfolates available on the market, such as metafolin, and three times more bioavailable than folic acid. [i] That’s for everyone too, not just people with the ‘MTHFR’ polymorphisms. Simply, it’s the best and most bioavailable folate in a supplement form.
- Quatrefolic® is structurally identical to the biologically active form that your body produces from various types of folate found in diet.
- It’s also the most stable form of supplemental folate due to its exceptional water solubility. Other forms may deteriorate readily over time if used in liquids or alongside other nutrients.
- It doesn’t need any digestion or conversion in the body and is quickly absorbed and transported into the bloodstream.
Supporting methylation needn’t be complicated with Nutrisorb® Liquid Methyl FolGuard ®.
We have a wide range of liquid vitamins and minerals in our Nutrisorb® and Vitasorb® product ranges.
