L-Methylfolate is the activated form of folate found in food and used by the body for many biochemical reactions. Folate supports mood, heart, and nerve health as well as normal fetal development. Unlike folic acid, L-methylfolate does not require conversion by the MTHFR enzyme, a function that may be impaired by genetic variations present in about half the population. This product provides the bioactive form of folate in a 1 mg dose suitable for a broad array of supplementation needs regardless of MTHFR status.

  • Supports healthy mood, cardiovascular and nerve function
  • Important for normal production of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine
  • Essential for converting homocysteine to methionine

Product Description

L-methylfolate is the activated form of folate found in food and used by the body for many biochemical reactions. Folate supports mood, heart, and nerve health as well as normal fetal development. Unlike folic acid, L-methylfolate does not require conversion by the MTHFR enzyme, a function that may be impaired by genetic variations present in about half the population. This product provides the bioactive form of folate in a 1 mg dose suitable for a broad array of supplementation needs regardless of MTHFR status.

How does it work?

L-methylfolate is critical for biochemical reactions involving one-carbon transfer (methylation). These include: DNA synthesis, cell division, amino acid metabolism, and neurotransmitter synthesis. Studies suggest that low folate levels can contribute to depressed mood and that supplementation may be useful for the maintenance of healthy moods. A decline of folate levels in the cerebral spinal fluid occurs with aging and has been associated with reduced cognitive function. L-methylfolate is essential for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, supporting vascular and cardio health by supporting normal homocysteine levels.

Uses

Folate supplement: Adequate folate is necessary for the normal formation of red blood cells and proper nerve function. Folate needs may be increased in those on medications known to decrease folate levels including certain anticonvulsants, oral contraceptives and certain medications used to regulate blood sugar.

Universal folate nutritional support: Useful folate levels may be affected in a certain percentage of the population with the MTHFR gene polymorphisms. While daily  MTHFR polymorphism folate needs are seen as falling within the same guidelines as supplemental needs for the general population, L-5-MTHF, as a form of folate that bypasses the MTHFR enzyme, may be a more readily usable form for this population and is a bioavailable source of folate safe for all segments of the population.

Women of childbearing years: Folate is a necessary nutrient for normal fetal development. It is advised that women of childbearing years take extra steps to ensure their folate needs are met. Breastfeeding mothers also have increased folate needs.

Mood: L-methylfolate supports the formation of neurotransmitters necessary for balanced mood including serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.
