Calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate(5-MTHF) belongs to the folic acid family of vitamins

(vitamin B9, folic acid), which is a coenzyme form of folic acid. It is a naturally occurring salt

forming methyl derivative form of folic acid, also known as L-methylfolate. It is the most

biologically active and functional form of folic acid and is more easily absorbed than ordinary

folic acid.

Functional deficiency of folic acid will reduce the ability of cells to synthesize and repair DNA.

Folic acid supplementation may be a more favorable method to increase folic acid and reduce

homocysteine level, and support normal cell proliferation, vascular endothelial function, and

nervous system function. Especially, 5-MTHF supplementation during pregnancy has been proved

to reduce the risk of neural tube malformation and recurrence.
