Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is best utilised once a practitioner is aware of the patient’s current methylation status (i.e. via Plasma Methylation Profile and DNA Health tests).\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMethylated nutrients increase SAMe, the principal methyl donor. If the body detects an excess of methyl groups, the body can downregulate the enzyme process, creating a negative feedback loop. The use of folinic acid is generally better tolerated by a greater number of individuals. Folinic will still convert to 5-MTHFR whilst allowing the body to have better regulation and control of the methylation cycle.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIf supplying pre-methylated nutrients, giving them in combination with vitamin B3 would be ideal to quench any excess methyl groups that may occur.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFurthermore, taking vitamin B3 may be advantageous to support healthy overall regulation of the methylation cycle in many individuals.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eWarnings\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eWarnings: RN Labs L-5MTHF\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eFOR PRACTITIONER DISPENSING ONLY.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIf symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFolate is considered safe during pregnancy.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eKnown Side Effects\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn doses typically administered for therapeutic purposes, 5-MTHF is considered non-toxic. At doses over 10mg daily, gastrointestinal complaints, insomnia, irritability, and fatigue have been reported.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhilst some concern exists that supplementation with high doses of folic acid could mask a vitamin B12 deficiency, supplementation with 5-MTHF appears to sidestep this potential problem. Since 5-MTHF can only be converted to 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate (involved in DNA synthesis) after participating in homocysteine recycling with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF will not mask a B12 deficiency.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eMedication Interactions\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe activity of 5-MTHF may affect, or be affected by, the presence of certain medications, including anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory medications.

Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is best utilised once a practitioner is aware of the patient’s current methylation status (i.e. via Plasma Methylation Profile and DNA Health tests).\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMethylated nutrients increase SAMe, the principal methyl donor. If the body detects an excess of methyl groups, the body can downregulate the enzyme process, creating a negative feedback loop. The use of folinic acid is generally better tolerated by a greater number of individuals. Folinic will still convert to 5-MTHFR whilst allowing the body to have better regulation and control of the methylation cycle.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIf supplying pre-methylated nutrients, giving them in combination with vitamin B3 would be ideal to quench any excess methyl groups that may occur.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFurthermore, taking vitamin B3 may be advantageous to support healthy overall regulation of the methylation cycle in many individuals.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eWarnings\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eWarnings: RN Labs L-5MTHF\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eFOR PRACTITIONER DISPENSING ONLY.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIf symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFolate is considered safe during pregnancy.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eKnown Side Effects\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn doses typically administered for therapeutic purposes, 5-MTHF is considered non-toxic. At doses over 10mg daily, gastrointestinal complaints, insomnia, irritability, and fatigue have been reported.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhilst some concern exists that supplementation with high doses of folic acid could mask a vitamin B12 deficiency, supplementation with 5-MTHF appears to sidestep this potential problem. Since 5-MTHF can only be converted to 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate (involved in DNA synthesis) after participating in homocysteine recycling with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF will not mask a B12 deficiency.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cem\u003eMedication Interactions\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe activity of 5-MTHF may affect, or be affected by, the presence of certain medications, including anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory medications.
