Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body. This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.

5-MTHF is an essential cofactor in the metabolism of the amino acid metabolite homocysteine. 5-MTHF also must be present in sufficient quantity for normal production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. These functions make 5-MTHF critical for both cardiovascular function and mood support.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Warnings

Tamper Evident: Use only if bottle is sealed.

In combination with Kirkman Labs DMG this led to our 5yo autistic son regaining his speech abilities.

Inferior to solgar brand metafolin

Posted by 5357228986904339794 on Mar 30, 2015

I found that this product to be extremely inferior to the solgar brand metafolin. I bought this thinking it's better value for money and it's more convenient then popping 10 tabs of solgar a day. I however dipped into a deep depression with crushing anxiety after 1 week from switching from solgar to this brand. Would not recommend to any with the 5-MTHFR gene mutation.

Expensive, but best available

Posted by Reviewer1497090 on Jan 16, 2014

This is a good high strength product from a reliable brand. Have looked, but not found anything as good. Capsule size is on the smaller side (good for kids), as we use this for Autism support (1 a day, with B12 shots, etc.).
