About Folate

Folate (or Folic Acid), also known as Vitamin B9, helps support a healthy pregnancy and fetal development. Additionally, folate helps support healthy protein metabolism, digestive and immune system functions, and formation of red and white blood cells. Research supports the use of Folic Acid to minimize risk of neural tube defects (NTDs), which are serious birth defects of the spinal cord and the brain, during pregnancy.

Folic Acid vs. Folate

Folic acid refers to the oxidized synthetic compound used in dietary supplements and food fortification, whereas Folate refers to the various tetrahydrofolate derivatives naturally found in food; tetrahydrofolate (or THF) is the form of folate that can enter the main folate metabolic cycle. Unlike natural folates (from food sources) that are metabolized to THF in the small intestines, synthetic folic acid must undergo initial reduction and methylation in the liver, where it is converted to THF in the presence of the enzyme, dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR). However, because DHFR has low activity in the human liver, insufficient amounts of synthetic folic are converted to the THF form resulting in unnatural, and potentially harmful, levels of unmetabolized folic acid entering the circulatory system. So, when adequate folate consumption from dietary sources is not an option, it is best to supplement with folate from food sources like the one in our Folate Gold product.

Whole-Food Folate Gold

Folate Gold is a 100% natural source of Vitamin B9 as Folate. Almost all commercially available Folic Acid supplements are synthetically created in labs from industrial chemicals, which not only have very low bioavailability, but are potentially harmful when consumed in high doses. The folate in Folate Gold is sourced from certified organic Citrus limon and is one of very few products on the market today that contains NO added synthetic Folic Acid.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does Folate Gold contain anything other than the active ingredient?

    In addition to the active ingredient, each veggie capsule of Folate Gold contains some rice flour. Because natural extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add rice flour during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.

    Is Folate Gold free of allergens and GMOs?
    Folate Gold is verified free of corn, egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish, and soy allergens by an independent lab. It is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™

    Is Folate Gold suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
    Folate Gold is certified vegan by Vegan Action.

    How long does it take to notice benefits?
    Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Folate Gold, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.

    What are the side effects, interactions, and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Folate Gold?
    Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition, those who are planning a medical procedure, and those who are taking any OTC or prescription medications, should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.
