Additional Information/Highlights: L-5-MTHF provides a natural, biologically active form of folate. Folate is essential for cell division and growth, and also works to balance the homocysteine pathway. This formula provides folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. 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 several forms found in food. In nature it is found only as this [6S] isomer, which is why DFH uses L-5-MTHF, the natural isomer.
