  • 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.

    5-MTHF 1 mg

    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.

    Powerful

    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

    Thorne: a Superior Product.

    My naturopathic doctor carries only a few brands and they are of the highest quality. When I moved out of the area and away from my doctor, I had to try to find 5-MTHF by Thorne Research on my own. Finally found them on PureFormulas website. A relief and now I can continue my supplement regimen. Grateful.


    Pros

      I believe that it is pharmaceutical grade.

    Cons

      It is hard to locate; only a few websites list it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

      Nothing.

    5-MTHf 1 mg.

    My naturopath recommended this product to help with my folic acid assimilation. By supplementing with L-5-MTHF I can be assured of getting the benefits of folic acid regardless of my ability to absorb or convert it to the active form. 5-MTHf is known to help with among other things excess estrogen production and depression. She recommended this brand and I know Thorne has a great reputation for quality products.


    Pros

      Thorne comes highly recommended by many naturopath so I have confidence in the product.

    Cons

      There are less expensive brands but Im not sure of their efficacy.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Hard-to-Find Product at a reasonable pri

    My family doctor prescribed the 5-MTHF 1mg capsules following a blood test that showed I needed this product. All of the stores I checked around my home town did not carry this product; one store could order it at a very high price. My doctor also recommended the Thorne website and from there I got onto the PureFormulas website. Lo and behold there was the product at a much better price plus free shipping. The order came quickly and in perfect shape so when I needed to reorder I used PureFormulas again. This will continue as long as I need to take this product. I have blood tests every couple of months and so far my doctor still wants me to continue the 5-MTHF. I appreciate that the capsules are small a reasonable price and are shipped so quickly. The website is also easy to use and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
