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 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 isomer, which is why DFH uses L-5-MTHF, the natural isomer.
