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.

5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

Great service as usual
By Cindy from Orem, Utah on May 14, 2012
Was referred to Pure Formulas when I began taking 5-MTHF and have been very happy with the service and with the product (mfg by Thorne Research).
I would recommend this item to a friend.
