Vitamin B12 and folate are interrelated in function. They convert carbohydrates into energy, and are vital in the metabolism of fats and protein. They play an important role in the maintenance of muscle tone in the G.I. tract, the functioning of the nervous system, and the integrity of skin, hair, and the liver. Folate is essential for healthy fetal neural development and is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. The B12 in this formula is provided as methylcobalamin, the most bioavailable form of this vitamin.
