Solgar Folate 1000mcg provides calcium-L-methylfolate, the body's preferred choice of folate.

Folates is the generic term comprising all the various chemical folate forms, including the provitamin, folic acid. Green leafy vegetables in particular are rich in folate. Metafolin (calcium-L-methylfolate) is the body's preferred form of folate, a readily bioavailable form (folic acid is a provitamin and needs to activated to folate in order to be utilised).

Sufficient folate levels are critical throughout our entire life. Less than optimal folate intake has been implicated in a variety of concerns including anaemia, various forms of cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer' disease and osteoporosis. However, despite the importance of folates, the majority of the population has insufficient folate intake. This is true even in countries with a mandatory food folate fortification with folic acid. The elderly population in particular does not reach the UK recommended daily allowance.

Increasingly evident, consumption of folic acid by way of fortified food and supplements does not solve the problem since various co-factor nutrients are required for the conversion of folic acid into folate. Using Calcium-L-methylfolate by-passes this process helping to counter any deficiency.

Dosage: One tablet of Folate 1000mcg daily.

FREE OF: Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Soya, Yeast, Preservatives, Artificial Flavours or Colours.


If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medications or have any medical condition, please consult your healthcare practitioner before taking this product.

Folate (as calcium-L-methylfolate as Metafolin) 1000 µg. Metafolin is a registered trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
