Methyl folate (L-5-MTHF, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) Is a coenzyme of the important vitamin folic acid. With normal folic acid, conversion must take place via biochemical processes in the intestines and liver to convert into 5 MTHF, a process which some individuals are unable to achieve due to intestinal or liver dysfunction. Due to its bio active form, 5 MTHF is superior to other forms of folic acid supplementation, guaranteeing absorption and overcoming the ineffectiveness some individuals may have with folic acid.
Due to its methylation, 5 MTHF can function as a methyl donor, converting the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. Homocysteine is a bio marker for risk of cardiovascular disease which both methyl folic and methyl B12 have shown to reduce.
Methyl Folic is recommended for both men and woman looking to conceive to increase the cellular health of both sperm and egg. Use during pregnancy is also recommended to reduce incidence of low birth weight and neural tube defects.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is responsible for the smooth functioning of several critical body processes. It is possible for the body to develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. This deficiency is usually reported with symptoms of fatigue. Strict vegetarians, heavy drinkers and smokers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, and the elderly usually require vitamin B12 supplements. Sometimes our body, mainly our digestive system, is not able to absorb this vitamin well. This can happen when a person has pernicious anemia, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, bacteria growth in the small intestine, or a parasite. People suffering from these conditions may need vitamin B12 supplements as well.
A deficiency in vitamin B12 can result in a host of illnesses like anemia, fatigue, weakness, constipation, loss of appetite, weight loss, depression, poor memory, soreness of the mouth, asthma, vision problems, and a low sperm count. Methylcobalamin is a biologically active form of Vitamin B12, ready for use by tissues and cells. Methylcobalamin is utilised much more efficiently by the body than cyanocobalamin and has substantially more retention by the body following supplementation. Methylcobalamin is used primarily by the liver, brain and nervous system and should be the first form of vitamin used when attempting to optimise B12 levels and improve neuro and cardiovascular health. Though a more expensive form of B12, Methyl B12 can work out to be much more cost effective version
Pyridoxal-phosphate (pyridoxal-5'-phosphate or P5P), is the bio active or coenzyme form of vitamin B-6. P5P is a natural form of B6 which is utilised for efficiently for various functions including muscle growth and repair, neurotransmitter functions and energy metabolism. As a coenzyme, P5P also participates in many chemical reactions and catalyzes the conversion of many substances in your body. P5P plays an important role in the build and break down of amino acids from one form to another.
P5P has the ability to lower levels of homocysteine in the body, an amino acid which is a potential risk factor for cardiovascular disease, by reducing levels of methionine. Methionine is use in the production of homocysteine and by reducing this P5P can help protect the body from coronary heart disease, hypertension and cerebral vascular disease.
Supplementation of P5P may also improve brain function, especially those with autism. It is thought that people with autism are not good at processing vitamin B6 in the active P5P form. By taking P5P and avoiding the need for conversion of normal B6 into its active form via the liver, improvements are seen in cognition and social interaction. It may even play a role in preventing Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease by reduction of homocysteine.
