Start Date:16th December 2020

Start Time:11:30 AM EST

Duration:30 minutes


The terms folate is becoming more and more familiar and is being recognized as important in pregnancy, for fertility and cardiovascular benefits. Indeed, the global folate market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.3% from 2019 to 2024, appearing to be focused on women’s health.

The current debate is “which form of folate is better”. Between all of this, Quatrefolic® stands out.

The body needs folates but can’t make them from scratch and must get it from foods or dietary supplements. Another challenge is that folic acid does not occur naturally in foods, and to function within the body it requires to be activated by specific enzymes. On the contrary, Quatrefolic® is the biologically active form of folate and is absorbed directly and naturally by our body.
