L-5-MTHF 1000MCG 60C
Our L-5-MTHF uses the patented folate derivative Quatrefolic®. This innovative form of folate has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility as well as long lasting stability. Quatrefolic® L-5-MTHF helps to increase blood folate levels much better than folic acid.
Made with non-GMO ingredients.
- BIOIDENTICAL FOLATE - This product contains 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, the natural, active form of folate found in the body. It is also one of several forms found in food.*
- 1 MG PER CAPSULE - Each capsule contains 1mg (1000mcg) of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate from 1700mcg DFE (Dietary Folate Equivalent). Organic spinach powder gives the capsules their green color.*
- SUPERIOR PATENTED FORM - Our L-5-MTHF uses an innovative, patented folate derivative which has demonstrated high bioavailability and solubility, as well as long-lasting stability. *

What makes this the most ‘active’ form of folate?
Before the body can use folic acid, it requires enzymes and other nutrients to convert folic acid into utilizable 5-MTHF. Since L-5-MTHF is already in the active form, conversion is unnecessary. Therefore, 5-MTHF supplementation makes a better and safer choice than synthetic folic acid for increasing blood folate levels, since it is already activated and not associated with high levels of unmetabolized folic acid.
This formula provides 1000 mcg per capsule of 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, rather than the mixed (or racemic) form.
Why have the amounts on the supplement facts changed?
Labeling requirements have changed for folate. Although this product contains 1 MG (1000 mcg) of folate, the label will list its equivalent: 1700mg DFE (Dietary Folate Equivalent).
