Methylfolate PlusTM and 5-MTHF Plus ForteTM

Posted

Methylfolate PlusTM and 5-MTHF Plus ForteTM supplies
folate, in the active form of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt. Methylfolate is a highly absorbable, activated form of folate, which does not require enzymatic conversion to
5-methylfolate in the body. The glucosamine salt form utilized in Methylfolate PlusTM and 5-MTHF Plus ForteTM is more stable than other forms of methylfolate often used.

While a small percentage of the general population (≤ 10%) lack the enzyme (methylentetra-hydrofolate reductase) needed to convert folic acid due to a genetic defect (homozygous TT), a larger percentage (heterozygous CT) are suspected to convert a limited amount of

folic acid.

 Folate de ciency is one of the most common vitamin de ciencies.In individuals with homozygous (TT) or heterozygous (CT) genetic predisposition, eating folate-rich foods may not provide the recommended daily dosage of folate; thus the need for supplementation. By providing 5-methylfolate directly, Methylfolate PlusTM and 5-MTHF Plus ForteTM may have bene ts for those who do not produce enough 5-methylfolate in response to folic acid supplementation.

Each serving (1⁄2 tablet) of Methylfolate PlusTMsupplies 400 mcg of folate as 5-methylfolate combined with 25 mcg of vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin in our biologically active, phytochemically rich vegetable culture base.

Each serving (1⁄2 tablet) of 5-MTHF Plus ForteTM supplies 2,500 mcg of folate as 5-methylfolate combined with 25 mcg of vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin in our biologically active, phytochemically rich vegetable culture base.
