Specialists estimate that even every second person is not able to metabolize traditional forms of two B vitamins – folic acid (vitamin B9) and cobalamin (vitamin B12). This means that the vitamins administrated are not converted into their bioactive forms and thus cannot be used for the systemic needs. They can cause health problems – unused vitamins accumulate in the body and disrupt its functioning. Simultaneously, the body is deficient in these vitamins, which only exacerbates the problem. The afore-mentioned situation usually arises from the disorders of methylation, most often due to the polymorphism of the MTHFR gene.
Here come the supplements of the latest generation, which contain methylated forms of folic acid and cobalamin. They can be immediately used by the body without the need for prior activation during complicated processes in the liver.
Methylated forms are indicated especially for people who have a mutation of the MTHFR gene. A decrease in the methylation efficiency can also be surmised if the level of homocysteine increases. Homocysteine tests are easier to carry out and more available than genetic tests, and they are very often an indicator for the specialists to recommend supplementing the deficiency of folic acid and cobalamin in methylated forms.
Our store’s offer includes a wide selection of mono-preparations containing a methylated form of folic acid and cobalamin. We also offer complexes of all B vitamins, in which vitamins B9 and B12 are in an active, methylated form.
