L-methylfolate is the most abundant form of folate in your body. It is also referred to as active folate or L-5-MTHF. Other types of folate need to be converted into active forms. People with MTHFR gene variants may not be able to activate folic acid. If you are low on this critical nutrient, your methylation cycle won’t work effectively.
Methylation is essential for regulating gene expression and controlling how your DNA works. L-methylfolate supports healthy red blood cells, mental health, and normal homocysteine levels. It is found in foods like leafy greens and liver. If you aren’t eating a lot of these, you may benefit from a dietary supplement to support healthy folate levels.†
