Product Description

Douglas Labs Methyl Folate

Methyl Folate contains the biologically active folate called (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), a patented form important for normal homocysteine metabolism.

What Methyl Folate is Best For

Methyl Folate is recommended for people that prefer a high dose active form of folic acid called (6S) 5-MTHF.

Methyl Folate may be used for the following:

  • Supports normal homocysteine metabolism
  • Supports normal neurological function

How Methyl Folate Works

Methyl Folate is from the Douglas Labs Vitamins/Minerals/Amino Acids product line.

Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with folate before and during the first two months of pregnancy can support proper neurological development in the fetus.

Also, folate plays a key role in the normal metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is created in the body from methionine, an essential amino acid derived solely from dietary intake. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to injure the vasculature, impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells.

Metafolin folate is a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine.

Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).
