Methyl Folate 5 mg

Methyl Folate 5 mg by Douglas Laboratories supplies a biologically active folate called (6S) 5- methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).

Functions

Folate is a vitamin that humans cannot synthesize or store well because of its water soluble nature. Folates are normally found in a wide variety of foods and are commonly consumed through a diet of green leafy vegetables, sprouts, fruits, and animal products such as milk and dairy products, egg yolk and liver, however, storage and heat during cooking may decrease the bioavailability by almost 95%.

Folic acid and food containing folate are not biologically active in the human body. To convert these forms to the biologically active 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) requires a key enzyme, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), which is considered one of the most important enzymes in human physiology.

Indications
