By supplementing with folinic acid (5-formyl-THF), a number of reduction steps can be bypassed to convert directly to 5,10-methylene-THF, alleviating the need for the DHFR enzyme.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSupplementing with folinic acid, therefore, assists 5,10-methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) enzyme to produce active folate (5-MTHF) which then methylates homocysteine; helping to convert homocysteine to methionine and then SAMe, rather than elevating.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLow serum folate and elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of developing a number of conditions.[1-10]\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eCognitive health\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLow folate is associated with a degree of cognitive decline.[6-8] A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 818 participants found that folic acid supplementation for three years significantly improved domains of cognitive function that tend to decline with age. Serum folate increased by 576% and plasma total homocysteine decreased by 26% in the folic acid group. The three-year change in memory, information processing speed and sensorimotor speed were also significantly better in the folic acid group.[9]\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eDNA replication and foetal development\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFolic acid is involved in intracellular metabolism and DNA synthesis.[10]\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe need for folate is higher when cell turnover is increased, such as in pregnancy and foetal development.

Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals Folinic Acid 

Methylation pathways and homocysteine metabolism

Folinic acid is an active metabolite of folic acid and does not require the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) to participate in reactions utilising folates.

The remethylation pathway of the methylation cycle actually involves methylation, re-methylation and de-methylation reactions involving folate, B12 and B2. By supplementing with folinic acid (5-formyl-THF), a number of reduction steps can be bypassed to convert directly to 5,10-methylene-THF, alleviating the need for the DHFR enzyme.

Supplementing with folinic acid, therefore, assists 5,10-methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) enzyme to produce active folate (5-MTHF) which then methylates homocysteine; helping to convert homocysteine to methionine and then SAMe, rather than elevating.

Low serum folate and elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of developing a number of conditions.[1-10]

Cognitive health

Low folate is associated with a degree of cognitive decline.[6-8] A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 818 participants found that folic acid supplementation for three years significantly improved domains of cognitive function that tend to decline with age. Serum folate increased by 576% and plasma total homocysteine decreased by 26% in the folic acid group. The three-year change in memory, information processing speed and sensorimotor speed were also significantly better in the folic acid group.[9]

DNA replication and foetal development

Folic acid is involved in intracellular metabolism and DNA synthesis.[10]

The need for folate is higher when cell turnover is increased, such as in pregnancy and foetal development. A daily dose of 500mcg of folinic acid or folate taken one month before conception and during pregnancy may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of the brain or neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly.
