How are we different?

The generic folate used in many dietary supplements is an artificial, synthetic substance which cannot be found in nature and cannot be directly utilised by the body. Additionally, many producers offer folate supplements with highly pure active L-methylfolate, but this does not necessarily correspond to a high absorption rate. Active L-methylfolate is always bonded with a salt, and the form and quality of that salt plays a major role in determining the bioavailability of the folate. We have therefore not only considered the purity of this product, but also other features such as the crystalline structure of the salt, its concentration, and the stability of the L-methylfolate, in order to ensure the high bioavailability of our folate supplements. Magnafolate® Pro, with at least 99.9% (6S)-L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, is ultra pure with regard to the active 6S isomer, which contributes to a high bioavailability. Similar products on the market often offer only 50% of this isomer and have noticeably lower bioavailability.

Moreover, Magnafolate®Pro is the only product on the market that delivers L-methylfolate bonded with crystalline type C calcium salt. In comparison to type I calcium salt, this variety is more soluble and therefore more bioavailable, which is reflected by a "first pass absorption rate“ of 76%. Other salt forms offer a rate of only 56%.

Other folate products may also combine the active L-methylfolate with its geometric variant R-methylfolate, but this second form cannot be utilised by the body. Some forms of methylfolate can contain up to 50% of this ineffective variant, thus further inhibiting the already difficult absorption process of folate and leading to a first pass absorption rate of only 38%. Magnafolate® Pro, however, combines purity, bioavailability, and stability for an ideal absorption of this vitamin.

This product contains only two ingredients: ultra pure (6S)-L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium salt and nutritious sprouted buckwheat powder, which is used as a filler. In contrast to generic fillers made from synthetic or even harmful microcrystalline cellulose, we use a nutritious powder derived from foodstuff.

For the capsule shells we use custom-made HPMC capsules that, unlike most other HPMC and pullulan capsules on the market, are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans and PEG. We then package this product in environmentally friendly amber glass.

Effects

L-Methylfolate

Technically speaking, folate does not occur naturally. The folate used in many nutritional supplements is an artificial, synthetic agent which cannot be found in nature or directly utilised by the body.

Synthetic folate must be first converted into active folate by the body before taking effect. Folate conversion can be especially difficult for those with inherited metabolic disorders, because it requires various cofactors and enzymes. The naturally active form of folate is known as L-methylfolate (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate or L-5-MTHF). We use this form of folate because it is highly bioavailable and can be directly utilised by the body.

The geometric variant R-methylfolate, which exists along with L-methylfolate, cannot be utilised by the body. Many active ingredients contain a combination of these two forms as they appear together in most production processes. Common forms of methylfolate can contain up to 50% of these ineffective variants.

Magnafolate® Pro

The patented ingredient Magnafolate® Pro is a highly bioavailable L-methylfolate in the form of (6S)-L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, which is bonded with calcium salt in a special crystallised form which ensures an extremely high absorption rate of the active ingredient L-5-MTHF. As a result, 76% of the folate is absorbed into the blood via first-pass absorption and can even pass the blood-brain barrier. The absorption of active L-methylfolate varies between individuals, and an individual's metabolism, as well as the form, purity and stability of a salt, can play a major role in this. Folate supplements bonded with other calcium or glucosamine compounds are not absorbed by the body in the same way as Magnafolate® type C calcium salt. The effect, however, is personal. With at least 99.9% purity of the active (6S)-isomer of L-methylfolate, combined with its stability, Magnafolate® Pro is the best quality folate active ingredient on the market.

Quality and Purity

The product was produced according to the highest quality and purity standards in the EU. It is gluten- and lactose-free, non-GMO, and vegan. The only additive is sprouted buckwheat powder.

Dosage

Recommended Dosage

Take 1 capsule (400µg folate) daily with 200ml water 1 hour before a meal.

Daily requirements

Folate is an essential B vitamin that must be absorbed in sufficient quantities daily. Folate is significant in all processes of growth and development, and plays a vital role in blood, cell, and DNA formation. Although European authorities recommend a daily intake of 200µg for adults, the German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends 300µg for adults on average. The DGE recommends 550µg and 450µg for pregnant and breastfeeding women, respectively.

Food Supplement

Do not exceed the recommended dose. Food supplements cannot replace a balanced and varied diet. Keep out of reach of children.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
