  • Product Description
  • Usage Guide


L-5-MTHF Capsules by Seeking Health provide 1,700 mcg DFE (1,000 mcg) of pure non-racemic L-methylfolate, an active coenzyme form of folate. Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that occurs naturally in food, such as leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, dried beans, and peas. The methylated form, L-5-methylfolate (L-5-MTHF) requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, and is often the preferred choice for those with absorption or metabolic defects. L-5-MTHF efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function. L-5-MTHF is easily absorbed and used by cells. It is the predominant folate in circulation and the only form of folate that can cross the blood-brain barrier.

When first taking L-methylfolate, side effects are possible due to inefficient methylation processes, pre-existing inflammation or possible genetic deficiencies. Consult your health care professional for testing to determine the proper dose of L-methylfolate for your individual needs. Niacin may help to support folate processing, and may be helpful to have on hand to support the body's metabolism of methylfolate if side effects occur.

For a non-methylated form of folate that is still well-absorbed and utilized, consider our Folinic Acid Lozenges or Folinic Acid Capsules. For additional methylation support, consider our Active B12 with L-5-MTHF.
