BioTrace Organic Folate is extracted from lemon peel and is 100% Certified Organic. Lemon peels are rich in phytonutrients.
Folate deficiency can occur when dietary intake is low, demands are high, or a genetic defect in folic acid metabolism exists. Folate is more bioavailable than folic acid as it doesn’t require metabolism into a usable form.
Folate is essential for DNA synthesis and cell division and may support fetal development. Folate is most supportive in the first four weeks of pregnancy. Supplementation is advised for all women who might get pregnant, and throughout pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Research indicates that folate may support normal brain function and heart health because it supports normal homocysteine levels in the body.
BioTrace Organic Folate is recovered from lemon peels using a water extraction process, and no chemicals. It contains no toxic excipients, is Vegan, Non-GMO and 100% Certified Organic.
