Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body. This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.

Help for inherited folate deficiency

by Leslie -

This was prescribed because I have an inherited mutation (that affects 50% of the population) that results in the body being unable to access the B Vitamin Folate. This was confirmed by a blood test and a phenomenal physician. I am thrilled to anticipate no more peripheral neuropathy and joint pain and depression, and more...all caused by the mutation and remedied by the folate.

I have struggled with ADD my entire life - and a friend suggested I try this supplement to counteract a potential folic acid deficiency. MTHF was what I was lacking. I didn't realize I was void of a particular nutrient until about four hours after I took this. My focus was a lot better, and my short term recall improved almost overnight. Not only that, but the service was incredibly efficient. I would recommend the product to anyone hassle free service. Definitely a legitimate company. Make sure you supplement with B12 - the two are synergistic.

I don't know, for sure, whether this helps me, but I have a deficiency in MTHFR causing anemia. Hopefully this does help.

Very helpful!

by salgal -

I have been using this for years when I was diagnosed with a genetic mutation. Using this with B6 and B12 seems to have solved the problem.

This is a must-have for me, with Biotin 5000mcg+folic acid5m

by SoCal woman -

I especially like Thorne Research because very few fillers and products are very effective. I use this, along with folic acid 5mg and biotin 5000mcg for thicker hair. Takes about 2 months to notice results, learned this from my sister's holistic doctor.
