L-5-MTHF Lozenge - 60 Lozenges | Seeking Health
L-5-MTHF Lozenges by Seeking Health provides 1,700 mcg DFE (1,000 mcg) of pure non-racemic l-methylfolate, a coenzyme form of folate, in a naturally flavoured lozenge format.
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that occurs naturally in food, such as leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, dried beans, and peas. L-5-methylfolate (L-5-MTHF) requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, thus it 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 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-methyl folate for your individual needs. Niacin may help to support folate processing, and maybe helpful to have on hand to support the body's metabolism of methylfolate if side effects occur.
