Most supplements contain folic acid which gets converted into 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (folate) so that it can be used in our body. Research shows that many people lack sufficient activity of the enzyme that’s necessary to do this. 5-MTHF enables the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, the production of serotonin and melatonin, and it is indirectly involved in the synthesis of DNA. Our formula provides you with highly bioavailable 5-MTHF. This superior folate alternative is readily available to your body and does not need to undergo initial conversion.
