- Designs for Health L-5-MTHF provides 500 mcg (850 mcg DFE) of natural, biologically active folate. Folate is essential for cell division and growth and for proper homocysteine metabolism. This formula provides folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). 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 Designs for Health uses L-5-MTHF (as Quatrefolic®), the natural isomer, rather than the mixed (or racemic) form. This innovative form of folate has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility as well as long-lasting stability. Quatrefolic® L-5-MTHF is superior to folic acid for helping maintain optimal serum folate.
Take one capsule per day or as directed by your health care practitioner.
