Thorne Research’s Folacal® delivers 800mcg of active folinic acid in every vegetarian capsule. This active form of folinic acid is necessary for the
synthesis of blood cells and proper functioning of the nervous system, as well as the health of the cardiovascular system and gums. Folic acid has also been
proven essential for women of childbearing age, especially when pregnant.
Folacal® is an excellent source of folic acid. What are the benefits that folic
Folic acid is a bioactive folate that’s crucial for the synthesis of RNA

helps the body produce red blood cells.
A deficiency in folic acid may contribute to anemia, a condition resulting from low iron levels in the blood.
Folacal® contains a fully activated form of folate that is highly bioavailable. As a result, your body can easily digest and access its benefits. Its formula is
completely free of preservatives, diluents, magnesium stearate, and flowing agents that can hinder bioavailability.
The folinic acid contained in Folacal®
makes a difference; unlike standard folic acid supplements, it cuts out the middleman by eliminating the five steps your body must normally take in order to
transform folic acid to folinic acid that can be used. The form provided by Folacal® is extremely valuable in the synthesis of norepinephrine, treating
anemia, lessening thyroid imbalances, and preventing neural tube defects. For those being treated with chemotherapy, folinic acid also offers a possible way
to reverse the damaging effects of those drugs.
