    Active folate supplementation for mood‚ heart health‚ fetal development and nerve support

    5-MTHF is an active‚ tissue-ready form of folate. It's an essential B vitamin that supports methylation. Many individuals don't get sufficient 5-MTHF because they have intestinal or liver dysfunction or because of their genetic makeup.


    Many individuals don't get sufficient 5-MTHF (L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate)‚ the active form of folic acid‚ because they have intestinal or liver dysfunction‚ or because they are among the three out of five Americans whose genetic makeup makes it difficult to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. A deficiency of folic acid has been linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube defects‚ which is why the Centers for Disease Control recommends folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age. Since 5-MTHF also contributes to the production of serotonin‚ melatonin‚ dopamine‚ epinephrine‚ and norepinephrine‚ supplementation supports healthy mood.

    Note: 1 mg of 5-MTHF is recommended for fetal support during pregnancy; the 15 mg option is recommended only when directed by a health-care practitioner.

    It is important for a woman of childbearing age to get enough folic acid – not just those women who are planning to become pregnant. Because half of pregnancies are unplanned‚ any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day. Folic acid intake is especially important before conception and during early pregnancy‚ since its biggest need is during the first trimester – when a woman might not even know she is pregnant. Supplementation with the active form of folic acid – 5-MTHF (L-5 Methyltetrahydrofolate)– is always preferable.

    Acting with vitamin B12‚ 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor‚ thereby facilitating the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. An elevated homocysteine level is a risk factor for a number of undesirable health conditions. Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes‚ including the synthesis of serotonin‚ melatonin‚ and DNA.

INTERACTIONS
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent 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.

    I've been taking 5-MTHF by Thorne Research for 14 months. It is not easy to find. The service was good and the price reasonable.

    I'm not sure if 5 MTHF by Thorne Research works but I'm doing a little better. Apparently a mutated gene causes folate not to be methylated. The MTHR gene. A blood test is required to find out if you have it.

    Pros

    Seems to help.

    Cons

    It is expensive.

    I know I can always depend on Thorne Research to give me a top quality product. Also, the 5 MTHF 5 mg is a lot of mg's per pill so nice. Saves me from having to take 25 pills daily, and I can get the quantity I need with 5 tiny pills. Just wish it wasn't so blasted expensive. However, if you're needing to take high quantities of methyl folate, this is the best deal. Only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the price.

    Pros

    High quality, 5 mg's per pill.

    Cons

    Very expensive, never goes on sale, is never available at a discount.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    AND also, trusted ingredients. 5-MTHF by Thorne Organics is the ONLY one my son does very well with.

    Pros

    Quality, form of folate.

    Cons

    Bigger than the other one. :/ The 1mg is perfect size.

    I like that 5-MTHF by Thorne Research comes in the 5mg and 1mg so you have the option of taking a smaller or larger dose. My doctor recommended taking this particular 5-MTHF and to take it in greater doses due to a genetic mutation. Prior to this product my gene mutation was debilitating, now I take this every day and am I able to be physically active and think clearly again. I have found it to be a great product.

    I take 5-MTHF by Thorne Research due to a genetic mutation. Originally I was on a prescription level of folate before Thorne came out with the 5 mg capsules. It is much nicer (and cheaper) to be able to buy these. My doctor recommended the brand due to the consistency of quality so I took her advice. I have continued to buy Thorne because it works as well for me as the prescription level folate did but at a much cheaper cost.

    Pros

    Quality and cost compared to a prescription product.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    This item was prescribed by my son's pediatrician to help with his system balance. This is one of a couple products I have purchased and it makes a huge difference. This is an ongoing purchase requirement until we are told to stop taking.

    Pros

    The capsule is much better than the liquid form. We have been very pleased to have found this option.

    Cons

    Wish this product was cheaper in price.

    I buy 5-MTHF for myself and a few of my children who have the genetic mutation MTHFR. It was recommended to us by a doctor. We have been using it for years and it makes a HUGE difference in the way we function physically (more energy,etc) and emotionally (more stable). I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with MTHFR!

  • Question:
    Is this product equivalent to Deplin? My doctor prescribed Deplin but it is prohibitively expensive and I was hoping this might be a good alternative.
