Ultra B12-Folate is a unique formula that combines vitamin B12 (cobalamin) with the patented folate derivative, Quatrefolic®. These two vitamins work synergistically, improving methylation and helping to promote balanced concentrations of homocysteine.* Although many manufacturers offer these separately, Designs for Health's formula offers the convenience of getting both B vitamins in one capsule. The premium B12 in this product comes from equal amounts of adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin.
Recommended Use: Take 1 capsule per day with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Ultra B12-Folate is a unique formula that combines vitamin B12 (cobalamin) with our proprietary blend of safe, naturally- occurring folates. These folates are found in foods such as eggs and spinach and are immediately ‘active’ and bioavailable to the human body. While many manufacturers offer B12 and folate separately, this formula combines these synergistic vitamins in one capsule, for superior results. This product provides equal amounts of the active, coenzyme forms of B12, adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, in order to ensure immediate integration into the chemical processes of the body.
Vitamin B12 works with folate in many body processes including the synthesis of DNA, red blood cells, the maintenance of the protective myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells, and for all normal cell growth and replication. Additionally, these nutrients synergistically reduce the body’s concentrations of homocysteine, a potentially dangerous compound that can harm the cardiovascular system and may be detrimental to overall health and wellness.
