    Active folate 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.

An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

    My daughter was recently diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Through that diagnosis and genetic testing, it proved she needed this support. Within a week of her taking this product, we started to see the ability to focus better and an overall calmer kid. This product is amazing!

    I was prescribed this 5-MTHF by Thorne Research supplement by my Naturopath after finding out I had MTHFR gene mutation and cannot process folic acid. I have noticed an improvement in my energy and my mood after starting this supplement. I've been taking it for 2 months and was told to increase from 1mg to 2mg after a month, and then to check back after 3 months. So far I feel like it's helping!

    Pros

    It has improved my energy and my mood. I've noticed less depression for sure which is awesome.

    Cons

    The only con is that it definitely caused increased anxiety the first week of using it. I was made aware that could happen so I just noticed it, accepted it, and was able to get through it knowing that it was likely caused by the medication and my body was just getting used to it. It's just something to be aware of.

    My doctor put me on 5-MTHF because my body does not process Folic Acid properly. Since I have been on this product  by Thorne Research my depression has lessened dramatically. I am only able to take 1 mg tab a day as more of it causes me to have muscle pain.

    Pros

    Helps my depression.

    Cons

    To large a dose can cause muscle pain.

    I tried taking 5-MTHF by Thorne Research. After taking it, I felt much calmer and happier than usual. However, later on I started having what are commonly listed as side effects of 5-MTHF, such as body aches and heart palpitations. It's important to start slow (some people need to start as low as 200 mcg, which would be 1/5 of the dose of one of these pills). There are other supplements that one can take to prepare one's body for 5-MTHF. It's a delicate balancing act. I plan to continue using 5-MTHF in the future after preparing my body more thoroughly.

    Pros

    I trust this brand, and believe it to be high quality and pure.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
