L-5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate) is a bioactive and bioavailable form of folate (folic acid). It is considered the active form of folate because it is the form that is directly incorporated into the methylation cycle that converts homocysteine to methionine, among other functions.
Signs and symptoms and uses of folate deficiency include elevated homocysteine (a risk factor for cardiovascular disease), macrocytic anemia, fatigue, irritability, peripheral neuropathy, hyper-reflexivity, restless legs syndrome, diarrhea, weight loss, insomnia, depression, dementia, cognitive disturbances and psychiatric disorders.
