Quatrefolic®: the Active Folate that supports Heart health!
According to extensive research, homocysteine plays an important role in preventing the risk factors leading to heart disease. An excessive accumulation of this amino acid in the blood - caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, a poor diet or even genetic factors - can in fact lead to cardiovascular disease (CVD), which still represents one of the major causes of mortality in the western world.
Folate is considered an important regulator of homocysteine metabolism but particularly Quatrefolic®, the glucosamine salt of 5-MTHF, is able to guarantee the right folate integration helping to normalize Hcy levels even in people with polymorphism of the gene MTHFR C677T.
