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.

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.

Great Product, Best Price Available

I have been taking Methyl-Guard for the last 6 months. My doctor recommended it to me and actually sold the product in her office. I went online to see if I could find Methyl-Guard for a better price and Pureformulas.com offered the best price, fastest service.
I believe it helps support my overall health.

Great product but CAUTION
June 7, 2013
I began taking Methyl-Guard for an MTHFR defect. It's a great product but I had to stop it temporarily and I wanted to post this word of caution for others. IF you have any kind of chronic bacterial or viral infection, such as Lyme disease or any of the co-infections that come with it, please be warned.....when you take Methyl-Guard, it will open your "detox pathways" and cause stored biotoxins (bacteria, mold, etc) to be released into your system. If your body does not have the capability to process these toxins fast enough (with Lyme patients do not have), it will cause severe herxheimer reactions. (Cytokine storm) Please be cautious about starting Methyl-Guard if you have Lyme disease and start very slowly---one cap per day---and watch for any worsening of symptoms, fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, etc. I am hoping to be able to continue it again but for the moment, I'm on "hold". Hopes this helps others!

Great product
March 28, 2013
Began taking Methyl-Guard last year at age 54 after my alternative gynecologist found I have mutation that causes my body to methylate only 30% of the targeted B vitamins. Take only half recommended dose; by second day my energy and stamina had returned. Messed with the dosage one time and experienced return of angina that I had dealt with several years ago. Methyl-Guard is great!

If you need a pre-clipped folic acid, Methyl-Guard is awesome. It works well, is way less expensive, and contains B vitamins. My Doctor prescribed it.

Used to purchase this product elsewhere. Was very impressed with the price and speed of delivery. Have been using it as part of a natural approach to managing Crohn's disease since 2007.
Methyl Guard is good if you have trouble processing the B complex of vitamins through traditional sources of nutrition, like food. It helps me stay healthy.
In a perfect world I wouldn't need capsules of anything to be healthy!

I got a genetic test done by Gensona and it showed that I have the inability to methylate folic acid and other B vits. So, this form of B vits does the methylation for me.
