Discover why active folate (vitamin B9), vitamin K2 as MK-7 and glutathione are trending in Asia Pacific
Folate is a mandatory vitamin recommended during pregnancy worldwide. Asia Pacific in particular, is seeing growing health awareness among pregnant women regarding proper folate supplementation. Folate supplementation is often advised in the early stages of pregnancy as it plays a key role in fetal development during the first weeks of pregnancy. In New Zealand for example, the government issued its decision to mandate the fortification of folate in all non-organic wheat flour used for bread making in hopes to improve neural tube defects (NTDs) rates. Globally, we are seeing accelerated active folate product launches in the market, with APAC taking 13% of the pie. Quatrefolic® is the last generation active folate – the advantage of glucosamine salt of 5-MTHF.
Vtamin K2 as MK-7 “makes calcium work” through its ability to activate specific K-dependent proteins already present in the body. Essentially, it directs calcium to the bone (where it is needed) and stops calcium from depositing in arteries and soft tissues (where it can do harm). Gnosis by Lesaffre has 2 brands of vitamin K2 – namely MenaQ7® and vitaMK7® – to cater to your needs.
