 A critical nutrient for young growing infants, Methylfolate supports the formation of the spinal cord and plays a role in supporting brain development. Methylfolate also helps form red blood cells, produce DNA, helps tissue and cells grow and function and works with other nutrients to help use and create new proteins in the body. 

Frisco, Texas, August 1, 2022, Pediatricians have prescribed Folic Acid, Folate, to pregnant women for many years. Clinical studies have proven its efficacy in both pre-birth and infant growth and development. Folate supports the development of their brain, as well as their digestive, nervous, and immune systems.

Kids require folate to produce red blood cells. When kids have a folate deficiency, they may suffer from a shortage of red blood cells, a condition known as folic acid deficiency anemia. Because red blood cells move oxygen and energy around the body, children could experience low energy or shortness of breath. They may also develop diarrhea, lose their appetite, or complain of a sore tummy or sore eyes.

There is even evidence to show that folic acid may boost a child’s language skills. Growth Spurt’s Goat Milk Toddler Formula includes the superior form of Folate, Methylfolate which is proven to have more “uptake” into the body. Folic acid is the synthetic form of Vitamin B9. Folate is considered a better source of Vitamin B9 because there is one less conversion step required in the body for it to become the active form the body needs to kick off all of the necessary downstream enzymatic processes for optimal health.

A very common genetic mutation that many toddlers have is called MTHFR, an enzyme required to convert folic acid into an active form called L-methylfolate, the active bioavailable version of folate the body needs for absorption and direct use. A recent study showed that Folic Acid affects language development in children. The results showed that there was a correlation between folic acid supplementation and a reduced risk of a language delay in children aged three years old.

The Growth Spurt Toddler Formula is modeled to be as close as possible to actual Breast Milk. This is because it is made with Full Fat Goat Milk, Lactoferrin, 2′-FL HMO (Human Milk Oligosaccharide), Prebiotics, Methylfolate, Bifidobacteria Probiotics naturally found in breast milk, and DHA & ARA which are vital for Brain and Eye development, and over 20 vitamins and other nutrients for healthy growth and development.

Growth Spurt manufactures in the USA and does not contain Maltodextrin, Corn Syrup Solids, Fillers, or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Pediatricians are increasingly suggesting Infant and Toddler Formulas based on Goat’s Milk.
