Life Extension Folate & Vitamin B12, 90 Vcaps
Life Extension Folate & Vitamin B12 contains Folate and Vitamin B12. Folate is a member of the B-complex family, is found in abundance in leafy green vegetables, participates in a coenzyme reaction that synthesizes DNA needed for cell growth and new cell formation, and helps convert vitamin B12 to one of its coenzyme forms. Vitamin B12 is found in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs, and supports brain and heart health and cognition as one ages.

Life Extension Folate & Vitamin B12 contains Folate and Vitamin B12. Folate is a member of the B-complex family, and is found in abundance in leafy green vegetables. Folate participates in a coenzyme reaction that synthesizes DNA needed for cell growth and new cell formation, and helps convert vitamin B12 to one of its coenzyme forms. Healthful diets with adequate folate may help to reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord defect.
Folate also helps to provide the following health benefits, such as promoting healthy DNA function, maintaining already normal homocysteine levels, which is important for heart health. It may help to promote healthier skin, and help maintain a healthy GI tract. Folate is part of a healthy immune system, maintains healthy endothelial function, and improves mild memory loss associated with aging.
Optimal levels of folate are necessary for healthy cell division and protein synthesis and are especially important for the maintenance of a healthy GI tract. The systemic need for folate increases in certain states in which increased cell multiplication is needed. Chronic use of medications such as aspirin in therapeutic doses and antacids can interfere with the metabolism of folate.
Vitamin B12 is found in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Thus, vegetarians are more susceptible to a dietary deficiency of this important nutrient. With aging, absorption of vitamin B12 from dietary sources typically declines. Vitamin B12 can help support brain health and cognition as one ages, and supports heart health by regenerating the amino acid methionine which helps maintain healthy homocysteine levels.
Vitamin B12 can help to support nervous system function as vitamin B12 and folate together help maintain the integrity of the myelin sheath of nerves, help enhance methylation and promote nerve cell growth, brain health, cognition and metabolism, and works with folate to maintain the production of red blood cells (erythropoiesis) within normal range.
Life Extension Folate & Vitamin B12 contain the biologically active forms of folate (as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate) and vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin). 5-methyltetrahydrofolate or 5-MTHF is the metabolically active form of folic acid, which is the only form of folate used directly by the body and does not require metabolic conversion or activation. 5-MTHF is seven times more bioavailable than folic acid. 5-MTHF can cross the blood-brain barrier which allows 5-MTHF specifically to benefit the neurological system.
