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

Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for L-5-MTHF 5 mg - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
I was directed by my Dr to begin taking L-5- MTHF by Designs for Health as my body does not absorb Folate. This formula gets past that! I was given a rx to fill and was shocked at the cost. I began my search for an alternative. I finally found this and have been pleased with the choice. It has helped my energy immensely. I highly recommend.
It works in helping with weakness and is far less expensive than the prescription.
Only thing that would make it even better would be a discount on quantity or auto ship.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
