Folic acid should be converted to its active forms for use by the
body. This can be a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the
intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction
this conversion would possibly not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body’s
needs. Furthermore, up to 60-percent of the U.S. population may have a
genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic
acid into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF
supplementation could also be a more effective method of folate repletion.
5-MTHF is an essential cofactor in the metabolism of the amino acid
metabolite homocysteine. 5-MTHF also should be present in sufficient
quantity for normal production of the neurotransmitters serotonin,
melatonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. These functions
make 5-MTHF critical for both cardiovascular function and mood fortify.
