Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- More Concentrated Methylation Support
- Contains Higher Amounts of 5MTHF (Active Folate), B6, B12
- Riboflavin 5'-Phosphate Added for Extra Homocysteine Metabolism Support
- Easy 3 Capsules Daily Dosing
Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (CH4 – one carbon attached to three hydrogens) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation to occur normally.
Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of 5MTHF (the active form of folate), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active B6), and methylcobalamin (active B12), than our original Methyl-Guard. We have also added riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism and methylation. These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients the body uses to push forward the process of methylation. Methyl-Guard Plus is more concentrated, so your patients will appreciate the recommended daily amount of three capsules, which will improve compliance. Our original Methyl-Guard is still available.
Take 1-3 capsules daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, calcium citrate, calcium laurate.

I am taking this supplement along with others to help with methylation and reduce homocysteine. My homocysteine blood tests have improved from 13.7 down to 6.1 (optimum range) but I also used L-Serine (the Amino Acid NOT Phosphatidyl Serine) This supplement contains the L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF) form of Folate which I can take I DO NOT TAKE FOLIC ACID as I have the C677T Methyl Folate Reductase enzyme genetic mutation (MTHFR) Due to this mutation the folate cycle is impaired in my metabolism so folic acid does not convert to 5-Metyl-tetra-hydro-folate (5MTHF)

A must for MTHFR

Absolutely essential for me with the MTHFR homozygous gene mutation. It takes time to build up the correct dose and can make you queasy at first, but when it starts working, or should I say, when you body works enough to accept it, it is life changing. This brand is easy to get in Australia therefore I wouldn't use another brand, although have tried others from USA without trouble.
PERFECT for MTHFR

I recently discovered that I have an MTHFR mutation and that I have a long standing folate and B12 deficiency, which have been causing me a lot of health issues. I recently started with regular methylcobalamin injections, along with these. I love this stuff. It has everything that you need if you suffer from this genetic mutation. I think that I am even noticing an improvement in my grey hair. It has certainly helped with depression, and anxiety.

My dr recommended these as I have a double mutation of the MTHFR gene. I need to make sure I have them after food as I can feel nauseous but apart from that they have been fine.
