Description Supplement Label
 
MethylFolate is a highly bioavailable form of folate. It also called L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that occurs naturally in food, such as leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, dried beans and peas. In contrast, folic acid is the synthetic form of folate commonly used in supplements and added to fortified foods. This folate supplement efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function. Contact College Pharmacy directly for a complete product monograph.

Supplement Information
  • Deficiencies of folate are common, as many individuals do not consume enough folate-rich foods. Cooking or processing readily destroys folate present in food. Folic acid, the form of folate commonly used in fortified foods and supplements, must be reduced during absorption to become metabolically useful. However, some individuals do not effectively convert folic acid into its active form, thus are still at risk of deficiency. In addition, unmetabolized folic acid that enters the bloodstream cannot be used by cells and has anti-folate effects that may be deleterious.
  • Suggested Use: 1 capsule daily with food.
  • Each vegetarian capsule supplies 1 mg (1,000 mcg) folate.
