    Great product!

    My whole family was tested and we found out we have the MTHFR variance that makes methylation and conversion of standard B vits difficult. Feeling so much better on L-5-MTHF BY Designs for Health!


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I'm not sure what L-5-MTHF  is supposed to do but my doctor is satisfied with it and finds it is helping me to prevent diabetes.

    Cons

      Can't think of any reason to dislike this capsule

    Great Product - no potato

    My Naturopath prescribed this for me to help with my Factor 5 Leiden issues. I also have a sensitivity to potato and many capsules apparently contain Potato (who knew?) so this one is safe! This company is always fast and the product always good. I recommend them.

    proper folate

    My physician (who is also certified in functional/integrative medicine )recommended I take L-5-MTHF : L-5-MTHF. Why? Its a proper bio-available form of Folate (rather than the rather useless yet ubiquitous folic acid"). Designs for Health is the only one I found out there which markets such a product. Pureformulas has a decent price plus NO shipping.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    MTHFR Supplement

    L-5-MTHF not bad but the dose is far to low to be effective. I use other products with a higher dose and better quality. To be effective you need atleast 5mg to 10mg of MTHFR a day. Which means you would need to take 10 pills a day - ouch !


    Pros

      nothing

    Cons

      not enough strength hard to take costly doesnt work

    Excellent if you have MTHFR or even othe

    I have been tested and have MTHFR with C677T I believe my husband also has a mutation too. Fortunately our son was born healthy due to the fact I was taking extra folate on my own as a precaution although I didnt know about the mutation at the time. My husband and I take L-5-MTHF by Designs for Health and have found a dramatic increase in attention span the ability to stay focused for long periods of time and the ability to concentrate. Our energy levels have improved too. It has removed our brain fog. We also give our son a little of this in his food maybe a third of the pill or so a day or every other day depending and find that it dramatically improved his speech and verbal abilities very very quickly. Hes 2 years old. My husband and I also take NOW brand B6 and Mercolas sublingual B12 along with a multi that does not contain folic acid. I have read that if you take synthetic folic acid it will more easily bind to your receptor sites and tie them up (uselessly since its not useable) while the useable folic acid will remain unused. Our son eats liver now and then too along with his multi. Im not a doctor these are just my experiences. Our family really likes L-5-MTHF and are grateful that its available. We even recommended it to our parents and they have had similar benefits.


    Pros

      Easy to swallow Works great Saw benefits quickly Can easily open capsule to give my son a smaller dose No aftertaste No tummy troubles even on empty stomach

    Cons

      I only wish it was made of organic spinich I would even be willing to pay more for it

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
