Great interest in Prof. Teodoro Bottiglieri’s speech on folate and SAMe at the Integrative Healthcare Symposium
March 1st, 2018
During the Integrative Healthcare Symposium held last week in New York, Professor Teodoro Bottiglieri – director of the Center of Metabolomics at Baylor Research Institute in Texas – gave an interesting speech on the Role of Folate and S-adenosylmethionine in Neuropsychiatric Disorders, which drew the attention of a large public.
The event was actively attended by participants, thus confirming the great concern in this specific topic, and was an opportunity to reiterate the extraordinary features of Quatrefolic®, the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, structurally analogous to the reduced and active form of folate, able to support and regulate the methylation cycle ensuring a higher folate uptake.
The speech has provided a broad perspective on the role, efficacy and safety of Adonat® (S-adenosylmethionine –SAMe) in the treatment of mood impairment, neuropsychiatric disorders and co-morbid medical conditions.
Prof. Bottiglieri, as a leading expert of One Carbon Metabolism, described symptoms and causes of folate deficiency and, supported by the results of several clinical trials, explained the essential role of B vitamins and methyl-group donors to reduce specific disease states and especially neurodegenerative disorders.
