    How it works

    The mechanism of action of Quatrefolic is related to the action of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, the active part of the proprietary ingredient. 5-methyltetrahydrofolate derives from tetrahydrofolic acid, through a series of metabolic reactions. Tetrahydrofolic acid acts as a coenzyme in several vital metabolic reactions participating in the transfer as acceptors and donors of various one-carbon fragments, involved in the biosynthesis of nucleotides purines and pyrimidines and in the metabolism of several important amino acids. In concern with vitamin B12, folate coenzymes allow the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine, the lack of this conversion has been associated with various pathologies and diseases. Conversion of tetrahydrofolic acid to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate is mediated by the action of the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. Supplementation with 5-methyltetrahydrofolate might be preferable to folic acid, being it is immediately available to react with homocysteine to avoid the possibility of hyperhomocysteinaemia.
