Another ingredient where Akua Life upgraded the potency of the common compound Vitamin B9 by way of Quatrefolic®.
Quatrefolic®a patented, more potent and more bio-available form of Vitamin B9 . It does all Vitamin B9 does and more. Quatrefolic® is the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and is structurally analogous to the reduced and active form of folic acid so Quatrefolic® completely bypasses the "damaged" MTHFR conversion step and delivers a "finished" folate the body can immediately use without any kind of metabolization. It is better than Vitamin B9 (Folate).
The potency will be apparent with the results you will achieve in your mind and body while taking Neuro-Stack! Superior Ingredients Equal Unprecedented Results!
The following is quoted from NootropicExpert.com with authorized written permission.
Vitamin B9 (Folate, folic acid, 5-methylenetetrahydrofolate) is water-soluble, and one of 8 B-Vitamins.
Vitamin B9 is known to improve mood, energy, initiative, alertness, concentration, psychomotor speed, and social activity.
As a nootropic, folate is also involved in gene expression, amino acid synthesis, myelin synthesis, and is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine and serotonin.
Many neurohackers, including doctors and other health professionals, confuse folate with folic acid. They are NOT the same.
Vitamin B9 (Folate) helps:
Mood: It is thought within research circles that folate’s involvement in neurotransmitter synthesis is most responsible for mood and cognition. Even increasing the effect of SSRI’s in those being treated for depression.
Folate is a critical component of DNA and RNA synthesis, gene expression, amino acid synthesis, and myelin synthesis and repair. Folate is required as part of the cycle that produces most of your major neurotransmitters including dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.
Folate is used in red blood cell production, helps break down and use proteins, and just about every other process in your body.
Folate deficiency is found in at least a third of those suffering from depression. Folate touches nearly everything happening in your brain. And the reason why we’re investigating it here. Folate should be part of your nootropic stack.
Green leafy vegetables, or ‘foliage’ are rich sources of folate. And how ‘folate’ got its name. You can also get folate from citrus fruit juice, legumes, fortified foods, and liver.
High doses of synthetic folic acid may increase your risk of cancer, immune system damage and other health problems.
