Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

You’ve probably heard a lot about how important folate is as part of a balanced diet, but what does this vitamin actually do in your body? And what can you do if you have “faulty” genes that prevent you from using it properly? Learn why we need folate, and what changes we can make to help mitigate deficiencies!

When most people consume junk articles and bad science, our learners want the truth. Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we're here to filter out the fads. We have a very strict research and review process. For example, when we touch on a controversial topic, citing a single piece of research can be confusing. That's why, in the absence of consensus, we compile studies to show you both sides. The findings are thoroughly investigated and based on studies vetted for scientific integrity, which have a higher probability of being accurate. This way, we avoid bad science and deliver proven research to you.
