NéevoDHA® with Folate
(Nature’s Folic Acid) for Pregnancy
Néevo® and NéevoDHA® are medical foods for use only under medical supervision for the dietary management of impaired metabolic processes in women under a doctor’s care who face high to intermediate risk pregnancies and are unable to fully metabolize or absorb folic acid.
The ingredient that makes Néevo® and NéevoDHA® unique is the inclusion of L-methylfolate: nature’s active form of folate as found in leafy green foods. L-methylfolate is superior to synthetic folic acid in many ways*:
L-methylfolate increases RBC folate concentrations more effectively than folic acid.
L-methylfolate reduces homocysteine more effectively than folic acid.
L-methylfolate is 7 times more bioavailable than folic acid.
L-methylfolate bypasses the C677T MTHFR polymorphism. Folic acid does not.
