Natural Folate from Premier Research Labs is a micro-digested liquid source of this important B vitamin (Vitamin B9) which is vital for many crucial biological pathways in the body.
Folate, also known as Folic Acid, is a type of B vitamin that is essential for many different functions in the body. These include DNA synthesis, repair of DNA, synthesis of healthy red blood cells, DNA methylation, regulation of homocysteine, maintaining cardiovascular health, promoting healthy tissue growth during pregnancy, and helping the body to recover from anaemia, polyps and toxic overload. Given its pivotal central role in our health and wellbeing, deficiency of this vitamin can be very serious, especially for unborn children who can develop spina bifida as a consequence of their mothers' insufficient dietary folate. This is why it is especially important for pregnant women to take a folate supplement. Other less serious deficiency symptoms are weakness, fatigue, difficulty in concentrating, irritability, headaches, palpitations, shortness of breath.

Premier Research Labs' Natural Folate is manufactured using state-of-the-art probiotic-generated culture-based systems, modeled on the human gastro-intestinal tract. These systems convert plant-based foods to bioactive nutrient forms. The culture systems used in production (saccharomyces cerevisiae) are inactivated in the final product. When nutrients are made using these probiotic technologies, the resulting food supplement is many times more bioavailable to the body, making such formulations more potent than standard extracts.
Premier Research Labs' Natural Folate tests completely negative for pesticides and heavy metals residues, and is suitable for vegans.
