  • 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

    Trusted brand

    AND also, trusted ingredients. 5-MTHF by Thorne Organics is the ONLY one my son does very well with.


    Pros

      Quality, form of folate.

    Cons

      Bigger than the other one. :/ The 1mg is perfect size.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great product!

    I like that 5-MTHF by Thorne Research comes in the 5mg and 1mg so you have the option of taking a smaller or larger dose. My doctor recommended taking this particular 5-MTHF and to take it in greater doses due to a genetic mutation. Prior to this product my gene mutation was debilitating, now I take this every day and am I able to be physically active and think clearly again. I have found it to be a great product.

    I trust the Thorne brand

    I take 5-MTHF by Thorne Research due to a genetic mutation. Originally I was on a prescription level of folate before Thorne came out with the 5 mg capsules. It is much nicer (and cheaper) to be able to buy these. My doctor recommended the brand due to the consistency of quality so I took her advice. I have continued to buy Thorne because it works as well for me as the prescription level folate did but at a much cheaper cost.


    Pros

      Quality and cost compared to a prescription product.

    Cons

    Great Product

    This item was prescribed by my son's pediatrician to help with his system balance. This is one of a couple products I have purchased and it makes a huge difference. This is an ongoing purchase requirement until we are told to stop taking.


    Pros

      The capsule is much better than the liquid form. We have been very pleased to have found this option.

    Cons

      Wish this product was cheaper in price.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    I buy 5-MTHF for myself and a few of my children who have the genetic mutation MTHFR. It was recommended to us by a doctor. We have been using it for years and it makes a HUGE difference in the way we function physically (more energy,etc) and emotionally (more stable). I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with MTHFR!

    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.
