5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is the most active metabolite of folic acid, bypassing all of the enzymatic activation steps in the conversion of folic acid to the biologically active 5-MTHF. Directly utilised by the body, 5-MTHF supports healthy methylation, homocysteine metabolism, DNA replication and foetal development.

Features

  • Contains 5-MTHF, the most active form of folic acid.
  • Supports a healthy brain and nervous system function.
  • Supports healthy methylation pathways and homocysteine metabolism.
  • Is involved in growth and cellular replication, and supports healthy replication of DNA through healthy DNA methylation.
  • Provides 500mcg of 5-MTHF (active folate), which contributes to the normal growth of the foetus.
  • If taken daily for one month before conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of the brain and/or spinal cord such as the neural tube defects known as spina bifida and anencephaly.
  • Helps maintain normal blood by helping to form red blood cells and assisting with their function.
