Body Energy Club 5-MTHF (folic acid), is the synthetic form of folate, is an essential B-vitamin most well known for its role in preventing neural tube defects in infants. It also has a role in supporting general health.
Folate and folic acid are used to support methylation in the body. These two supplements, eventually form a molecule known as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF or L-methylfolate) are involved in indirectly supporting and creating S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) in the body.
Body Energy Club 5-MTHF (L-methylfolate) seems the most promising as many people have genetic mutations in the enzyme, which produces L-methylfolate from folate and folic acid. Supplementing with L-methylfolate may circumvent this genetic disadvantage rate-limiting step. Furthermore, L-methylfolate seems to be the most promising agent to support SAMe levels. The active ingredient in the formula is L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, calcium salt. Folic acid (common name) and folate (Proper name).
