5- METHYLTETRAHYDROFOLIC ACID
- 5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid is a biologically active form of folic acid that functions, in conjunction with vitamin B12, as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
- The availability of methyl groups is essential for a variety of methylation reactions including the synthesis of DNA and proper neural tube closure.
- It has been used to restore nitric oxide-generating activity in cases of familial hypercholesterolemia or hyperhomocysteinemia, reducing homocysteine levels and improving vascular endothelial function.
