5 MTHF ACTIVATED provides 5000 mcg of a bioactive and bioavailable form
of folic acid known as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. This form of folic acid is
considered active because it is the form that is directly incorporated into the
methylation cycle that converts homocysteine to methionine. At least 25% of
the population may have an enzyme defect‚ or single nucleotide
polymorphism (SNP)‚ that leads to a decrease in the function of the
methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (5 MTHFR) enzyme‚ which is needed to
convert folic acid into its active form‚ 5 MTHF.
Without adequate 5 MTHF‚ the inflammatory compound homocysteine can
build up in the blood vessels. This methyl-group donation is also vital to many
bodily processes‚ including the synthesis of serotonin‚ melatonin and DNA.
Additionally‚ supplementation with folic acid significantly reduces the
occurrence of neural tube defects in pregnant women.
