Qfolic has an active form of folic acid which is better than the previous generations of folic acid with the superior absorption, higher bioavailability, & better utilization to make it your body’s favorite folic acid.

Qfolic plays a vital role in the wellbeing of the unborn child and health of women. Its benefits include cell reproduction, a critical process during pregnancy & infancy, maintaining normal brain function, preventing birth defects and making healthy red blood cells.

Healthy fetal growth & development
Folic acid or its equivalent folate, is a water-soluble vitamin B9 present in certain food types like Spinach, liver, asparagus, and brussels sprouts. It is essential for healthy fetal growth and development and hence highly recommended during pregnancy.
Qfolic has biologically active folic acid, with better bioavailability, better solubility, and safety. Unlike some other variants of folic acid, Qfolic does not need any metabolization and does not expose cells to unmetabolized folic acid (UMFA).
Folate deficiency can occur due to a variety of causes, including inadequate dietary intake, surgery, pregnancy, and malabsorptive diseases. Deficiency can result in serious side effects, including megaloblastic anemia, birth defects, mental impairment, impaired immune function and depression.
1. Food Folate
2. Synthetic folic acid
3. L-methyl folate – Calcium
Folic acid itself is not the active form of folate but to get activated it must be metabolized through several steps, it has lesser bioavailability, has tolerable limit of 1mg/day and is not much water soluble.
It is biologically active form and can directly enter the folate cycle, has three times higher bioavailability, tolerability high and not established and it is water soluble.
