Designs for Health L-5-MTHF 120 Vegetarian Capsules

Designs for Health L-5-MTHF 120 Vegetarian Capsules


Designs for Health L-5-MTHF helps to form red blood cells, helps the body to metabolize protein. It 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 the 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.
