  • 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.

    Thorne: a Superior Product.

    My naturopathic doctor carries only a few brands and they are of the highest quality. When I moved out of the area and away from my doctor, I had to try to find 5-MTHF by Thorne Research on my own. Finally found them on PureFormulas website. A relief and now I can continue my supplement regimen. Grateful.


    Pros

      I believe that it is pharmaceutical grade.

    Cons

      It is hard to locate; only a few websites list it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Critical for those in need

    We use 5-MTHF by Thorne Research 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 through a blood test life long supplementation is not only beneficial its 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.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    5-MTHF

    5-MTHF by Thorne Research is very hard to find!! thrilled to see you have it...and at a great price. :) My body apparently doesn't function properly without it! A genetic test by my Naturopath (MTHFR) proved this after 20 YEARS of not feeling right and unexplained health issues in conventional doctors offices all over the country. Now I'm back on track !! THANK YOU!


    Pros

      Small enough capsule, I don't choke!

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    5-MTHF a good option for us.

    I have used 5-MTHF by Thorne Research for almost 2 years. My son can not process regular Folic Acid nor Folinic Acid. This product seems to be working great for my little guy.

    Great Product!

    5 MTHF by Thorne Research 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 dont ever want to be without it now because we know it works with those therapies to give us some even keel!
