  • Thorne Research’s Methyl-Guard® delivers many of the significant homocysteine metabolism cofactors your body needs to promote and maintain bone and female reproductive health. Its powerful and effective formula also provides the valuable nutritional support needed to support healthy adrenal and thyroid glands‚ as well as the maintenance of optimal levels of homocysteine and methylation.

    This supplement provides many health benefits‚ such as:

    • Supporting healthy levels of homocysteine
    • Supporting the strong methylation of dopamine‚ estrogen‚ epinephrine‚ heavy metals‚ and toxins
    • Supporting the replacement of vital nutrients‚ which may be depleted if you take oral contraceptives (the birth control pill)

    Methyl-Guard® contains several essential active ingredients‚ which work together to keep women healthy.

    Folic Acid (as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate & calcium folinate): This B-vitamin is involved in breast tissue health‚ detoxification‚ prenatal development‚ nervous system functioning‚ and the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. In its active state‚ folic acid serves as a provider of methyl groups; its delivery of the mixture of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) and calcium folinate enables optimal utilization of folic acid‚ because it can bypass the metabolic steps prior to bioactivity. Furthermore‚ 5-MTHF presents the form of folic acid your body can use‚ which it normally has to convert other forms into—this allows for more efficient absorption. In this formulation‚ 5-MTHF is delivered as Quatrefolic and calcium folinate. Quatrefolic has been shown to have greater solubility‚ stability‚ and bioavailability than the calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF.

    Trimethylglycine (anhydrous betaine): Located in a variety of tissues in the human body‚ trimethylglycine serves as an alternate donor of methyl when it comes to homocysteine metabolism. Trimethylglycine can also be a preventative agent‚ opposing the initiation of NF-κB that occurs at the same time as aging and inflammation.

    Vitamin B-12 (methylcobalamin): Cyanocobalamin—the version of B-12 found in many other supplements—must be converted into methylcobalamin by the liver. In contrast‚ Methyl-Guard® provides vitamin B-12 in a directly usable form. B-12 has been found by studies to be effective in reducing homocysteine.

    Vitamin B-2 (as riboflavin 5’-phosphate): As a key coenzyme form of vitamin B-2‚ riboflavin 5’-phosphate is used in many oxidation-related reactions. Riboflavin and folate interact to decrease plasma homocysteine levels.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Good product!

    Methyl-Guard by Thorne Research is recommended by a well respected acupuncturist and thought leader in the paleo community for cognitive support and for methylation problems.


    Pros

      Good quantity of P5P so I don't have to order an additional P5P supplement. Great combination product.

    Cons

    Energy booster

    I take 1 capsule twice a day to help increase my vitamin B12 levels since I have a mutated MTHFR enzyme and cannot take standard vitamin B supplements. Has really boosted my energy! Methyl-Guard by Thorne Research really works for me.

    Good product!

    I buy Thorne Research Methyl-Guard for my wife whom we are fairly certain has the MTHFR gene mutation that doesn't process folic acid and folate correctly. All biological children have tongue and/or lip ties and she feels better taking Methyl-Guard. We will see if the next child has tongue/lip tie after knowing about this issue and trying to correct it with Methyl-Guard. :)


    Pros

      A good two month supply.

    Cons

      Seems pricey for no more pills than is in there.

    The best B vitamins !

    I always had a difficulty with taking B vitamins before because it always upset my stomach. But when I found this Vitamin B product I was very happy. This one has the most important B vitamins that most people most likely have deficiency with which are B6 B12 & Folate. My naturopath doctor highly recommended this product by Thorne Research. And I tried it. And it never upset my stomach. So since then Im happily taking it daily.

    Reversed B12 Deficiency

    I was found to have a b12 deficiency and had extreme fatigue all the time. My doctor found that typical supplements found over the counter did not seem to be effective in treating b12 deficiency. Through investigation of the Manufacturer Thorne as well as actual results of his patients blood labs my doctor recommended. Its been close to 8 months since starting this supplement and I noticed an increase in energy within 6 weeks. I dont have jitters any longer either. My blood labs also concluded my levels are now within acceptable range. This is truly a great supplement. The formula helps your body utilize it properly. I also bought it for my son who also has low energy. Highly recommend.


    Pros

      Very effective

    Cons

      Takes some time to start seeing results

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Excellent product!

    Methyl-Guard was recommended by my naturopath 5 years ago. It includes a healthy dose of B vitamins which helps reduce my stress levels. This helps me a lot and I will continue buying it. I love the ease of ordering from PureFormulas.
