  • Methyl Folate by Douglas Laboratories supplies 1‚000 mcg of biologically active folate called (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).

    FUNCTIONS
    Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods‚ including leafy green vegetables‚ citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with folate before and during the first two months of pregnancy can support proper neurological development in the fetus. Additionally‚ folate plays a key role in the metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is created in the body from methionine‚ an essential amino acid derived solely from dietary intake. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to injure the vasculature‚ impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells.
    Metafolin® folate is a patented‚ natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring‚ predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health‚ as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine.
    Unlike synthetic folic acid‚ 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body‚ without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme 5‚10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).
    In certain populations‚ the body’s ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the
    blood-brain barrier. Metafolin® does not appear to mask the anemia associated with a vitamin B12 deficiency and presents no risk of an accumulation of unmetabolized folic acid in the body.

    INDICATIONS
    Methyl Folate is a useful dietary supplement for those individuals that prefer a high dose active form of folic acid called (6S) 5-MTHF.

    Seems fine

    I started Methyl Folate L-5MTHF for a MTHFR genetic mutation. From what I can tell it is having a positive impact. Finding the right dosage is not easy so I encourage working with a knowledgable professional.

    Pros

      Seems to work fine Reasonable pricing Free shipping Good customer service

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Its been a miracle for my family with M

    We love Douglas Lab brand because we tried Thorne Methyl Guard Plus and what a difference. We had intense brain fog and low energy in just one day trying the other brand. This brand is the real deal. We have such energy and clarity of thought as well no anxiety. We take 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon along with P5P 500 mg in the Douglas Lab Brand. We take Now brand for the Methyl B12 1000 mg in morning and 1000 mg in the afternoon. All three are necessary for C667T. For A1298C you need to add the methylated form of Niacin. We use the Now brand Niacinaminade ? and also extra Vitamin C...we use Now brand of that too. Love this stuff. Feel so happy....no depression....my husband and kid with A1298C can concentrate and all ADD and ADHD gone!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
