5-MTHF, also referred to as L-methylfolate, has become a trendy conversation topic amongst practitioners. 5-MTHF is the primary biologically active, most bioavailable form of folic acid. It is used at cellular level for preserving the integrity of DNA proteins as part of a process called methylation. It is also one of the key nutrients in the cysteine cycle, and it is essential in the regulation of homocysteine. 5-MTHF is significantly different from folic acid in that it is the form found in circulation and transported across membranes into tissues and across the blood-brain barrier.

In this webinar, Registered Nutritional Therapist Miguel Toribio- Mateas will elaborate on how folic acid doesn’t equal folate, the folate metabolism pathways, the different types of folate, and their properties. Miguel will focus on the various genetic variations of the MTHFR gene that can translate in varying individual needs for folate, and in the resulting clinical presentations associated with them. Miguel will also provide some examples of clinical strategies to deal with folate imbalance or folate-related metabolic dysregulation. This seminar is perfect for those looking to separate fact from fiction when it comes to folate and to understand the benefits of using 5-MTHF as their chosen source of folate.
