Key Benefits and Actions*

  • Pure, non-racemic form of L-methylfolate
  • May help support a healthy nervous system
  • May help support a healthy prenatal regimen along with a healthy diet and lifestyle
  • May help support healthy methylation processes

L-5-MTHF Lozenges by Seeking Health provide 1,700 mcg DFE (1,000 mcg) of pure non-racemic l-methylfolate, a coenzyme form of folate, in a naturally flavored lozenge format. Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that occurs naturally in food, such as leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, dried beans, and peas. L-5-methylfolate (L-5-MTHF) requires no additional metabolic steps to be used by the body, thus it is often the preferred choice for those with absorption or metabolic defects. L-5-MTHF efficiently supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homocysteine metabolism, and nervous system function. L-5-MTHF is easily absorbed and used by cells. It is the predominant folate in circulation and the only folate that can cross the blood-brain barrier.*

When first taking L-methylfolate, side effects are possible due to inefficient methylation, pre-existing inflammation or possible genetic deficiencies. Consult your health care professional for testing to determine the proper dose of L-methylfolate for your individual needs. Niacin may help to support folate processing, and may be helpful to have on hand to support the body’s metabolism of methylfolate if side effects occur.*

For a non-methylated form of folate that is still well-absorbed and utilized, consider our Folinic Acid Lozenges or Folinic Acid Capsules. For additional methylation support, consider our Active B12 with L-5-MTHF.

Causes aggression?

Since I am compound heterozygous for MTHFR, I began taking this L-5-MTHF Lozenge. Unfortunately I have to split the lozenge because I find that taking 1,000mcg all at once, I become "aggressive" and "irritable" later in the day (I take lozenge in the morning). My husband always points out when this happens and I can always pinpoint it back to the fact that I got lazy and didn't use my pill-cutter to cut the lozenge in half, and instead took the whole dose. I'm not sure why L-5-MTHF has this kind of side effect, but I do know that it's been written bi-polar people need to stay away from it...otherwise it exacerbates their behavior.

Great product, not for me.

I love Seeking Health products. I'm not able to tolerate this one, at least not at this point. But it's not the product's fault.

I use it every morning

After learning I have compound heterozygous MTHFR, my physician put me on a prescription for an expensive l-methylfolate name-brand drug. So happy I found these L-5 MTHF lozenges. I save money and I can control the dosage.

Does the trick

I use in combination with the prenatal protein powder. Seems to work well.

Fantastic Product

I've been taking the L-5-MTHF for about 2 months now after being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Along with other supplements from Seeking Health and dietary changes, I am very pleased with how I am feeling. No flare ups or abdominal pain. I also like that most Seeking Health products are allergy free and non-gmo as I have a few allergies. Pure and simple ingredients, great tasting, works well. The Lozenges are great for portion control also! 5/5
