5-MTHF

  • the most biologically active form of folate
  • a breakthrough in folate supplementation
  • the most bioavailable, active form of folate
  • an excellent source of folate for pregnant women
  • supports optimal cardiovascular and nerve function

Genetic Defect and High Homocysteine Levels

Due to genetic defect many people cannot convert folic acid into the active 5-MTHF form. High homocysteine levels may be an indication of this genetic defect.

High homocysteine levels can damage the lining of arteries, leading to arterial disease.

High homocysteine is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Active folate, 5-MTHF works with B12 to convert homocysteine back to methionine. Several other B vitamins are needed to keep homocysteine low.

The Active Form of Folic Acid, 5-MTHF

Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body.

This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver.

In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body’s needs.

Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF.

For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.

5-MTHF is an essential cofactor in the metabolism of the amino acid metabolite homocysteine.

5-MTHF also must be present in sufficient quantity for normal production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.

These functions make 5-MTHF critical for both cardiovascular function and mood support.

B9 – Bioactive Folic Acid.

Supports cardiovascular and neurological function.

L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF) is the bioactive form of folate.

This form ensures more immediate effects on metabolism than folic acid, the form of folate commonly used in fortified foods and supplements.

This form directly activates the proliferation of neural stem cells, and helps with the development and repair of the nervous system.

As we age it is vital that the nervous system is nourished properly.

Many people cannot efficiently convert the inactive folic acid into the active form due to a genetic defect.
