Proprietary folate ingredient with vitamin B complex positively impacts pregnancy outcomes in recent study

A recent study found that supplementation with 5-methyltetrahydrofolate as Quatrefolic from Gnosis by Lesaffre and a vitamin B complex containing vitamin B12 and B6 had a positive impact on pregnancy outcomes in infertile women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technologies.

A recent study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health1 found that supplementation with 5-methyltetrahydrofolate as Quatrefolic from Gnosis by Lesaffre (Marcq-En-Baroeul, France) and a vitamin B complex containing vitamin B12 and B6 had a positive impact on pregnancy outcomes in infertile women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technologies. In the retrospective study, 111 women took Quatrefolic and vitamin B complex daily (group A) while 158 women only took a daily dose of folic acid (group B). Results showed that women in group A had a higher percentage of clinical pregnancy (60.4% vs 44.9% in group B) and live birth (48.6% vs. 35.4% in group B).

“We are excited to see the increasing volume of publications related to the role of the biologically active form 5-MTHF as a better option than folic acid in fertility problems and pregnancy outcomes,” says Silvia Pisoni, global market manager of reproduction and women’s health with Gnosis by Lesaffre, in a press release, noting that this study strengthens the positioning of Quatrefolic in fertility, validating results from previous studies. “Quatrefolic is proven to be a real solution with beneficial innovated features that match totally to the requirements of physicians and doctors to provide effective solutions and increase consumers’ compliance.”
