5-MTHF Methylfolate


5 mg- 60 capsules
Brands:: Thorne



Folic acid from food or supplementation 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. This conversion may not occur sufficiently in intestinal or liver dysfunction 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; in concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor to convert the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including synthesizing serotonin, melatonin, coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, and DNA. 5-MTHF 15 mg is recommended for those a health-care practitioner has evaluated needing extra methylation support.

Interactions/Contraindications 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.
