L-MethylFolate (60 Capsules)
L-MethylFolate provides a highly bioavailable form of folate called L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (also known as methylfolate or L-5-MTHF), the predominant, metabolically active form of folate in the body. Methylfolate efficiently supports methylation, DNA and RNA synthesis and repair, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function.
Folate deficiencies are common as many individuals do not consume enough folate-rich foods and folate is readily destroyed by cooking or processing. Although typically included in multivitamins, some individuals do not effectively methylate and convert folic acid into its bioactive form thus are still at risk of deficiency. L-5-MTHF, an active, methylated form of folate, requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, thus it is often the preferred choice for women, children, and those with absorption or metabolic defects. L-5-MTHF efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function.
Methylfolate is the principal, active form of folate in blood and the only folate that can cross the blood-brain barrier. It supports healthy nervous system function, and is the primary methyl donor for conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Methylfolate is the only folate shown to support cardiovascular health through supporting endothelial function. L-MethylFolate provides a metabolically active folate and is a preferred choice to support optimal folate nutrition.
