Learn More:

5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate) is the bioavailable form of vitamin B-9. Our body cannot synthesize folate or vitamin B9, and therefore, we need to obtain it via diet and supplements.

Folate is necessary for neural development of the baby during pregnancy. It helps in proper development of the brain nervous system and reduces the risk of spinal cord problems in babies. Therefore, methylfolate supplementation is of utmost importance during pregnancy.
It is well known that Folate can reduce the incidence of spina bifida and anencephaly in unborn babies by 50% to 70%.

However, the folate provided by dietary sources cannot be used directly. It has to be broken down in our liver into a biologically active form called tetrahydrofolate, in the presence of certain enzymes. Many of us lack these enzymes, and thus we may become deficient in B-9. Likewise, people with kidney or liver problems will not get sufficient folate. Furthermore, those with digestive tract disorders such as IBS, are unable to absorb folate well from our food.

5-MTFH on the other hand, is readily absorbed in the digestive tract, and can be utilised directly by the body without going through the liver.

5-MTFH plays a vital role in biochemical reactions at a cellular level, including DNA synthesis, DNA repair and proper genetic expression. It is also involved in metabolism of important hormones, including dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine,  histamine, L-DOPA and serotonin. Low levels of folic acid or methyltetrafolate are associated with cervical dysplasia, mood disorders and nervous system conditions.

According to research, folate supplementation also supports cardiovascular and bone health by balancing homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an amino acid associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular problems.
