This product is currently sold out.
5-MTHF, also known as Methylfolate, is the preferred form of folate supplementation because it is the active form of folate used by the body’s tissues.*
Many individuals don't get sufficient 5-MTHF (L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate), the active form of folic acid, because they have intestinal or liver dysfunction, or because they are among the three out of five Americans whose genetic makeup makes it difficult to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF.
Benefits of Thorne’s 5-MTHF:
- Adequate 5-MTHF (a form of folate) is essential for neurotransmitter production, brain function, and mood.
- 5-MTHF acts as a methyl-group donor along with vitamin B12, promoting healthy methylation and homocysteine levels.
- Folic acid is particularly important before conception and during early pregnancy, as the greatest need occurs in the first trimester.
- Folic acid deficiency is linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube birth defects.
