Methyl Folate L-5_MTHF Douglas Laboratories 60 Tabs
Methyl Folate L-5MTHF 60 Tablet
Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with folate before and right through the first two months of pregnancy can give a boost to proper neurological development in the fetus. Additionally, folate plays a key role in the metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is created in the body from methionine, an essential amino acid derived solely from dietary intake. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to injure the vasculature, impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells. Metafolin folate is a patented, natural form of 6S 5-methyltetrahydrofolate 5-MTHF . 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase MTHFR . In certain populations, the bodys ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised as a result of genetic differences. Metafolin contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate in an effort to cross the blood-brain barrier. Metafolin does not appear to mask the anemia associated with a vitamin B12 deficiency and presents no risk of an accumulation of unmetabolized folic acid in the body.
