Methyl Folate ((6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid or (6S)-5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic is the 4th generation development in folate delivery. With certain inherited errors in metabolism and under a variety of physiologic stresses, the transformation of folic acid into the active form of folate either does not properly take place or is inadequate. Unlike folic acid, 5-MTHF can cross the blood-brain barrier. HEALTH CLAIM: Healthful diets with adequate folic acid may reduce a woman's risk of having a child with certain brain or spinal cord defects.

Jarrow Formulations Jarrow Gentle Fibers provides high-quality fibers and lignans that promote cardiovascular and immune health along with good digestion and proper elimination. The insoluble fibers (flax and chia) in Jarrow FORMULAS Gentle Fibers positively affect elimination by promoting increased peristalsis (wave-like motion of intestines). The soluble fibers (flaxseed, orange pulp & peel, gum Arabic, and inulin-FOS) in Jarrow FORMULAS Gentle Fibers promote cholesterol metabolism and cardiovascular health. These soluble fibers also promote the growth of the good bacteria (Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria), which are important in maintaining the proper pH of the digestive tract, good digestion, and immune modulation. The lignans (chia and flax) in Jarrow FORMULAS Gentle Fibers are naturally occurring phytoestrogens that exhibit antioxidant activity and support healthy cell replication and cardiovascular function.
