Health Benefits at a Glance:

The active form of folate, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate(5-MTHF) found in High Potency Optimized Folate (L-Methylfolate) can help maintain healthy homocysteine levels. Normal homocysteine levels promote normal cardiovascular- and nervous system function.

 

Why it Works:

Folate is involved in neurotransmitter synthesis and critical enzymatic reactions throughout the entire human body. However, certain people taking folate supplements, may not be enjoying all the health benefits associated with folate. This is because not all people can convert folate to its biologically active form called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) [1].  In turn, this leaves these people vulnerable to low blood folate levels and higher-than-desired homocysteine. People with higher-than-normal homocysteine levels have a greater risk of experiencing cognitive decline [2].

5-MTHF is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which is highly important for people who suffer from cognitive difficulties. This is because 5-MTHF actively enhances the synthesis of a neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) associated with memory.  That is the reason why a vegetarian tablet of High Potency Optimized Folate (L-Methylfolate) provides 5,000 mcg of the bioactive 5-MTHF form of folate which is up to 7 times more bioavailable than ordinary folic acid and can help bring homocysteine levels back to normal levels, promoting cognitive, nervous and cardiovascular health.

 

The Science Behind the Product:

Research demonstrates that in many people, deficiency of genetic enzymes does not allow the conversion of folate to 5-MTHF.

5-MTHF has been declassified as a drug and is now available as a dietary supplement. 5-MTHF has been revealed to dramatically elevate red blood cell folate levels [3] compared to folic acid supplementation.

This bioactive folate is up to seven times more bioavailable than folic acid. In addition, it does not require conversion to become metabolically active and is therefore particularly vital in people who experience a genetic enzyme deficiency [4]

Studies also report that the effectiveness of 5-MTHF can be further increased by co-supplementing with methylcobalamin (the active form of vitamin B12),[5] vitamin B6, and riboflavin [5].
