Folic Acid/5-MTHF

Folic Acid/5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)

  • supports gastrointestinal tract health*
  • promotes a healthy nervous system*
  • helps maintain homocysteine levels in the normal range
  • Supports detoxification pathways

5-Methyltetrahydrofolic primary biologically active form of folic acid used at the cellular level for DNA reproduction, the cysteine cycle and the regulation of homocysteine. It is also the form found in circulation and transported across membranes into tissues and across the blood-brain barrier. In the cell, L-methylfolate is used in the methylation of homocysteine to form methionine and tetrahydrofolate (THF).
