5-MTHF (also known as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) is a biologically active form of folic acid – which some even consider as a breakthrough in folate supplementation. This vegetarian source of 5-MTHF provides one milligram per serving.

This 5-MTHF supplement by Thorne Research is an excellent source of folate for pregnant women or anyone who wants to ensure they are getting appropriate levels of folate. Folate is essential to support nerve and cardiovascular function. As with most Thorne Research products‚ this 5-MTHF does not have preservatives‚ magnesium stearate or other diluents and lubricants. This supplement has been produced without inhibiting flowing agents.

About the 5-MTHF Form of Folic Acid

In order to be effective‚ folic acid must be converted to an active form. This is a biochemical process that occurs in many steps within the liver and intestines. In people who have liver dysfunction or intestinal issues‚ the folic acid may not be converted sufficiently enough for your body to be able to use it. Another portion of the population (up to one-third of us) may have an enzyme defect that blocks them from converting the folic acid to 5-MTHF. These groups of people can benefit from supplementing with the already active form of folic acid‚ 5-MTHF.

Folic Acid Deficiency

Pregnant women are advised by their doctors to supplement with folic acid because this vitamin supports fetal development. In fact‚ all women of childbearing age should take a supplement including folic acid‚ since folate is most necessary during the first trimester of pregnancy. During much of this time‚ a woman may not even know she’s pregnant.

A folic acid deficiency does not only affect pregnant women. It can occur in anyone who does not get enough folate from their diet or in people with certain medical issues‚ including alcoholism‚ sickle cell disease‚ or kidney problems. Certain medications can also cause a folic acid deficiency. Folic acid is actually one of the B vitamins. It is crucial to helping your body produce new red blood cells. Without the appropriate amount of red blood cells‚ you will be at risk for anemia‚ a condition that can lead to fatigue‚ lightheadedness‚ forgetfulness‚ irritability‚ and trouble concentrating. If you think you have folic acid anemia‚ talk to your doctor about your symptoms and request a blood test.

Since folic acid works closely with vitamin B12‚ you may also be tested for a B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 and 5-MTHF function together as a methyl-group donor to help convert homocysteine to methionine. This is a vital part of various biochemical conversions‚ so you must maintain adequate levels of both vitamins.

In addition to a 5-MTHF supplement‚ you can also add more folic acid to your diet in the form of citrus fruits‚ fortified cereals and green leafy vegetables.

Each bottle of Thorne Research’s 5-MTHF 1 mg contains 60 vegetarian capsules.

Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

5-MTHf 1 mg.
June 19, 2014
My naturopath recommended this product to help with my folic acid assimilation. By supplementing with L-5-MTHF, I can be assured of getting the benefits of folic acid, regardless of my ability to absorb or convert it to the active form. 5-MTHf is known to help with among other things, excess estrogen production and depression. She recommended this brand, and I know Thorne has a great reputation for quality products.
Pros:
Thorne comes highly recommended by many naturopath, so I have confidence in the product.
Cons:
There are less expensive brands, but I'm not sure of their efficacy.

Hard-to-Find Product at a reasonable price
April 26, 2014
My family doctor prescribed the 5-MTHF 1mg capsules following a blood test that showed I needed this product. All of the stores I checked around my home town did not carry this product; one store could order it at a very high price. My doctor also recommended the Thorne website and from there I got onto the PureFormulas website. Lo and behold, there was the product at a much better price, plus free shipping. The order came quickly and in perfect shape, so when I needed to reorder I used PureFormulas again. This will continue as long as I need to take this product. I have blood tests every couple of months and so far my doctor still wants me to continue the 5-MTHF. I appreciate that the capsules are small, a reasonable price, and are shipped so quickly. The website is also easy to use and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

My naturopathic MD recommended I take 5-MTHF (specifically the Thorne brand, known for high quality), along with Methylcobalamin and P-5-P (active form of B6), for treatment of pernicious anemia. My latest blood test shows improvement, and I definitely feel better. I take 2 capsules daily, it also helps improve my mood.
Pros:
Good quality, measurable results.
Cons:
A bit expensive.

Good but not best
September 19, 2013
I've been looking for a methyl version of folate and usually use the metabolic balance brand and love them. I thought 5-MTHF would be a replacement but it costs a lot more and the amount of folate per pill is very small, I would have to take 10 of 5-MTHF Capsules to equal 1 pill from the metabolic balance. I'm sticking with metabolic balance.
Cons:
Cost too much per pill

My Miracle
September 22, 2012
I struggled with chronic fatigue and other health problems for decades. When a nutritionist diagnosed me with an MTHFR gene mutation and heavy metal toxicity I thought my problems were solved. After four rounds of chelation therapy I improved but continued to struggle. At some point my naturopath/MD noticed that all my issues pointed to poor methylation. He put me on Thorne 5-MTHF and within a week I was a new person. I haven't felt this well for forty years!
Pros:
No side effects (except feeling really well!).
Cons:
I wish Thorne would offer a 50 mg capsule for more control in dosing.

5 MTHF has been a complimenting supplement for our Autistic Childs therapy. It has taken the edge off behaviors we saw with both Methyl B12 shots and also with Behaviour Balance DMG liquid. We don't ever want to be without it now because we know it works with those therapies to give us some even keel!

The best form of folic acid
June 25, 2011
I am using some natural products prepared for me by a compounding laboratory to achieve repair of adrenal gland exhaustion and hormone balance in the form of transdermal cremes and supplements (bio-available amino acids, progesterone, etc.). They also suggested certain supplements to take daily, with this particular form of folic acid being on their list. Folic acid from this source is supposed to be the most beneficial and absorbable - many multi vitamins have folic acid from cheaper sources that you cannot absorb.
Pros:
Premier source of folic acid

Critical for those in need
January 25, 2011
We use this product because my son has a genetic mutation in the MTHFR enzyme, which means his ability to convert certain forms of folic acid is impaired. If you have a family history of early stroke or clot and/or have confirmed this mutation thru a blood test, life long supplementation is not only beneficial it's essential. In autistic children a typical parent report "Before 5-MTHF my son only threw his legos, after 5-MTHF supplementation he began *building* legos and playing appropriately for the first time in his life." Note: some people may need to combine this supplement with various forms/doses of B12.
Pros:
Doctor Recommended, Purity, Quality, Pharmaceutical Grade, Low Dose compared to prescription form.
