  • L-5-MTHF provides a natural‚ biologically active form of folate. Folate is essential for cell division and growth‚ and also works to balance the homocysteine pathway. This formula provides a generous 5 mg per capsule of folate in the bioidentical‚ bioactive form‚ 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. L-5-MTHF (the “L” signifying that it is the all-natural [6S] isomer) is the active circulating form of folate found in the body and one of the several forms found in food. In nature it is found only as this [6S] isomer‚ which is why DFH uses L-5-MTHF‚ the natural isomer‚ rather than the mixed (or racemic) form.

    Designs for Health L-5-MTHF uses the patented folate derivative Quatrefolic®. This innovative form of folate has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility as well as long lasting stability. Quatrefolic® L-5-MTHF helps to increase blood folate levels much better than folic acid.

    Others who may benefit from L-5-MTHF:
    Pregnant women and women wishing to become pregnant who have familial history of depression‚ high homocysteine levels‚ or genetic defect in MTHFR. Note: All pregnant women should consider taking Prenatal Pro™ as their comprehensive multivitamin; can combine with L-5-MTHF if higher levels of folate are needed.

    - Women with abnormal pap smears (precancerous)
    - Those with very high homocysteine levels not responding quickly to Homocysteine Supreme™(consider using them together)
    - Dialysis patients
    - Organic acid testing that reveals elevated FIGLU (marker used to identify folate deficiency)
    - Patients with family history of dementia/vascular dementia
    - Patients with depression
    - Long-term alcoholism
