5-MTHF 1mg 60c by Thorne5-MTHF is the most biologically active form of the B-vitamin folic acid. 5-MTHF works together with vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, which provides methyl groups for numerous other biochemical reactions in the body. Because of this, folate supplementation may support cardiovascular health, nervous system function, normal cellular proliferation, and gingival health. Folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to potentially reduce the risk of neural tube defects.
It is important that women that are of childbearing age to get enough folic acid due to the fact that the greatest need is during the stages of early pregnancy when some women might not even be aware of the pregnancy.
Thorne suggest taking 1 5-MTHF capsule one to three times daily or as directed by your healthcare provider.
