Thorne Research 5-MTHF 1 MG (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate)

The body’s conversion of synthetic, inactive folic acid is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not be sufficient to meet the body’s needs. Furthermore, up to 60 percent of the Canadian population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.

In concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA. 5-MTHF is also involved in production of the catecholamine neurotransmitters (dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine) and the production of beneficial nitric oxide in vascular endothelial cells, which promotes healthy blood vessel function.

Great product

I have used for years as a “maintenance “ treatment on my knees and shoulders to be able to play golf in comfort

5 star rating

I have been purchasing supplements from Vitasave for a few years now and they have good quality products and excellent shipping. I live in a remote area and always get my items quickly and in good shape. Excellent products and service.

Only problem I had with this product was mixing it in liquid

Medi-C Plus

Vitasave delivered the Medi-C Plus to my door within 26 hours of my online order. No delivery charge. I take the Medi-C Plus every day. Very handy during covid. My 92 year old mum has been taking this product for many years and is very active.
