Optimal Folate Blend

What it is:

Optimal Folate Blend is 800 mcg. of pharmaceutical grade folic acid, 5-formyl tetrahydrofolate and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate. It is a pre “broken down” folate to enhance folate metabolism. It is estimated that 25% of individuals do not have the ability to activate folic acid due to genetic variability. Therefore having a L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, body ready “nature identical” folate is especially important.  While it is very expensive to test for this genetic deficiency, it is inexpensive to supplement with our Optimal Folate for assured folate metabolism.

What it does:

Folate is essential for the formation of DNA and RNA (our genetic blueprints) at the cellular level and is particularly important for body tissues that have fast cell production and turnover such as bone marrow and the intestinal tract. It’s also required for the synthesis and breakdown of amino acids. A deficiency in folic acid can affect the nervous system and brain function. Folic acid lowers blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine, high levels of which are linked to cardiovascular disease and stroke. The vitamin may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, improve symptoms of depression and decrease the risk of certain cancers. Additionally, some evidence suggests that taking folic acid daily can increase sperm count.


L-5-MTHF plays an important role in the detoxification of a variety of compounds, including environmental toxins (such as mercury, lead, arsenic and tin), medications, and some of the body's excess hormones. Inadequate levels of L-5-MTHF may cause potentially toxic build-up of estrogens in the body, which may increase the risk of prostate and other cancers. Also, daily supplementation with folic acid is known to lower homocysteine levels.

Daily Schedule:

Take one tablet daily.

My doctor recommended I get more folate into my diet. I'm a regular EWE client so I knew where to get it. I feel better these days and I recommend my friends take it!
