Methyl folate 5mg


Folate is in the B vitamin family and it performs
many critical functions related to DNA methylation
and synthesis, cell division, human growth and
development, and nervous system function.
Humans need to maintain an adequate dietary
intake of folate during various stages of their lives
to stay healthy. Folate works together with vitamin
B12 to support normal production of the important,
mood-regulating neurotransmitters dopamine,
norepinephrine, and serotonin. Methylated folate is

essential for converting homocysteine to methi-
onine, a process that protects cardiovascular health.

Like B12 deciency, folate deciency is associated
with neuropathy. Furthermore, some research
shows an association between Alzheimer’s disease
and deciencies of vitamin B12 and folate. It’s
possible that in people with high homocysteine,
folate could help reduce age-related cognitive
Research shows that methylfolate is the preferred
form of folate over folic acid, since methylfolate is
more easily utilized by the body and also better
tolerated by sensitive individuals. Folic acid is
synthetic whereas folate, also called 5-MTHF,
5-methylfolate, or methylated folate, is the natural
form more easily utilized by the body. Folate is the
natural form that is well absorbed even when
gastrointestinal pH is altered and its bioavailability
is not aected by metabolic defects. Using 5-MTHF

instead of folic acid reduces the potential for mask-
ing hematological symptoms of vitamin B12 de-

ciency, reduces interactions w/drugs that inhibit

the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase, and over-
comes metabolic defects caused by MTHFR genetic

polymorphism. Use of 5-MTHF also prevents the
potential negative eects of unconverted folic acid
in the peripheral circulation.
Conventional supplement lines often contain
additives & preservatives like corn starch, talc,
crospovidone, hydrogenated oil, food colorings,

polyethylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, & BHT.

These llers, additives, preservatives, and excipi-

preservatives in Methyl Rescue.
