I had the privilege of presenting at the Pregnancy Care Forum, Dubai. It was a popular forum with around 100 practising obstetricians and medics attending from the United Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Iran. The main area of focus was the role of folate in pregnancy. I presented on: “The Evidence-Base Behind Metafolin (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate)”.
Familiar with this? Well, it’s a crystalline form of natural folate that is bioavailable yet does not overspill into the systemic circulation, contributing to ‘unmetabolised folic aid’ where there have been growing health concerns.
