In the newest VMG there is a change to a preferred form of folic acid called Metafolin.
5-MTHF (or Metafolin) is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate, and is directly usable by the body.
Metafolin® is patented, contains only the S isomer of the 5-MTHF, and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Unnatural folic acid needs to be activated into the biologically activated form. The efficacy of that process shows high individual fluctuations and much of society has deviations in the enzyme required for that conversion.
Metafolic is the directly bioactive form not requiring conversion and this is important as a very significant area that 5-MTHF plays a role is the methionine synthase -ie, the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
Homocysteinemia, or elevated plasma homocysteine, is quickly emerging as a major, independent risk factor of cardiovascular diseases. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to injure the vasculature, impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells. Elevated homocysteine also appears to be thrombogenic.
We are also proud to announce that the green food base has been changed exclusively organic sources and we use gluten free grasses in the formula now. Finally, the Vit D has been increased to 1000IU per daily serving.
We'll continue to try and stay on top of improving what matters in our nutraceuticals and keep everyone in the loop.
