In particular, folate deficiency is high among individuals aged 65 and may reach approximately 30% of aging population.
The lack of this vitamin is mainly due to the reduced dietary intake, intestinal malabsorption and impairment of metabolism. The body in fact is able to store folate to a limited extent, as humans cannot synthesize folate, also due to its water-soluble nature.
This edition of science UP has been issued to reinforce the need to pay attention to the critical age group of the elderly, who can benefit significantly from the intake of folates like Quatrefolic® – the innovActive folate, that can be immediately used by the body without any kind of metabolization.
