- Designs for Health L-5-MTHF 1700 mcg provides a natural, biologically active form of folate. Folate is essential for cell division and growth, and also works to balance the homocysteine pathway.**
- These formulas provide folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. L-5-MTHF (the “L” signifying that it is the all-natural [6S] isomer) is the active circulating form of folate found in the body and one of the several forms found in food.
- In nature it is found only as this [6S] isomer, which is why DFH uses L-5-MTHF, the natural isomer, rather than the mixed (or racemic) form. Our L-5MTHF uses the patented folate derivative Quatrefolic®.
- This innovative form of folate has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility as well as long lasting stability. Quatrefolic® L-5-MTHF helps to increase blood folate levels much better than folic acid.**

If you have a hard time converting folic acid this is a great way to get those essential B vitamins. The folate works amazing for me. I can tell a difference when I take them, as I have more energy to get through the day.
My doctor recommended L-5-MTHF to help absorb B-12 which helps fight cancer cells as soon as they enter the body. I had cancer 8 years ago and now do whatever I can to make sure it doesn't come back. It works.
