  • Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body. This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore‚ up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others‚ 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.

    5-MTHF is an essential cofactor in the metabolism of the amino acid metabolite homocysteine. 5-MTHF also must be present in sufficient quantity for normal production of the neurotransmitters serotonin‚ melatonin‚ dopamine‚ epinephrine‚ and norepinephrine. These functions make 5-MTHF critical for both cardiovascular function and mood support.

    Product Highlights:
    - The most biologically active form of folic acid
    - A breakthrough in folate supplementation
    - The most bioavailable‚ active form of folate
    - An excellent source of folate for pregnant women
    - Supports optimal cardiovascular and neurological function
    - Made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

    Saved a life!!!

    My 18 year old daughter (compound heterozygous MTHFR) has fought severe depression/anxiety her whole life and has been in traditional (antidepressant) treatment for 10 years. I was pretty sure she would never be able to hold down a job and would end up on disability. Within weeks of taking 5-MTHF (along with her usual antidepressant) family members were noticing a huge difference. Now almost a year later she finished high school early is going to college volunteering and applying for work. She also had a hand tremor for years. It is now GONE! The results of 5-MTHF have been miraculous. Maybe there are other brands that are just as good but this is what has worked for her and I wont experiment. Her antidepressants WERE NOT ENOUGH. She is not "cured" but she is thriving. 5-MTHF has literally saved her life!!


    Pros

      It has saved her life!

    Cons

      No complaints!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Prescribed by Naturopath!

    I'm not sure if 5 MTHF by Thorne Research works but I'm doing a little better. Apparently a mutated gene causes folate not to be methylated. The MTHR gene. A blood test is required to find out if you have it.


    Pros

      Seems to help.

    Cons

      It is expensive.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Correct Form Of L-MTHF at 5mg

    The correct form of MTHF as its L form not the R form. The proper form means it actually works. Rarely do you find a product with the quality found at Thorne. My Doctor said 5-MTHF is the only one to take. Ive been taking 5-MTHF for about 2 years now.


    Pros

      Correct L Form Quality Dosage Standards

    Cons

      none

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Is this product equivalent to Deplin? My doctor prescribed Deplin but it is prohibitively expensive and I was hoping this might be a good alternative.
