This is a high dose 5mg (5000mcg) folate product.

Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body.* This is a 
multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence 
of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may 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 
may 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 must 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 support

Interactions:
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.
