 5-MTHF is the most biologically active form of the B-vitamin folic acid. 5MTHF 
works in concert with vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) in the conversion of 
homocysteine to methionine, which provides methyl groups for numerous 
other biochemical reactions in the body. Because of this, folate supplementation 
supports cardiovascular health, nervous system function, normal cellular proliferation, 
and gingival health. Folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to 
reduce the risk of neural tube defects. 

Research has shown a subset of individuals do not efficiently convert folic acid from 
the diet or supplements to active 5-MTHF, due to genetic enzyme deficiencies. 
Research suggests 5-MTHF is a more efficient form of supplementation than inactive 
folic acid in these and other individuals.

5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent 
with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic 
activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-
inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis 
or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
