BioGenesis Nutraceuticals – 5 MTHF Activated – 30 Vegetarian Capsules
BioGenesis Nutraceuticals 5 MTHF Activated contains a bioactive and bioavailable form of folic acid known as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. This form of folic acid is considered active because it is the form that is directly incorporated into the methylation cycle that converts homocysteine to methionine. It is also 7 times more bioavailable than regular folic acid. Without adequate 5 MTHF, the inflammatory compound homocysteine can build up in the blood vessels. Also, this methyl-group donation is vital to many bodily processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin and DNA.
There are many reasons why folate deficiency is considered one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. These include deficiency in the food supply, defects in utilization as in alcoholics or those with liver disease, malabsorption, increased needs in pregnant and nursing women, metabolic interference by drugs, and deficiencies in enzymes or cofactors needed for the generation of active folic acid.
In order for folate to be converted to its active form in the body, several enzymes, adequate liver and intestinal function, and sufficient amounts of riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), zinc, vitamin C and serine need to be present. Significantly greater amounts of folate were found in the serum after 24 weeks of supplementation with 5 MTHF than with folic acid and placebo. This may be because at least 25% of the population may have an enzyme defect, or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), that leads to a decrease in the function of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (5 MTHFR) enzyme, which is needed to convert folic acid into its active form, 5 MTHF.
Signs and symptoms of folate deficiency include elevated homocysteine, macrocytic anemia, fatigue, irritability, peripheral neuropathy, hyper-reflexivity, restless legs syndrome, diarrhea, weight loss, insomnia, depression, dementia, cognitive disturbances, and psychiatric disorders

Welcome to BioGenesis Nutraceuticals, Inc., America’s most innovative line of professional only nutraceutical products. When they founded BioGenesis in 2000, their goal was to formulate products of the highest quality using therapeutic levels and containing a complete profile that would enable the doctor to minimize the complexity of the prescription to the patient. As a full-time practicing physician, my experience over the last 21 years has been that too many companies produce formulas with limited application, requiring me to prescribe multiple formulas for each patient complaint. This led to complex treatment plans that most patients had difficulty following. I wanted to find a way to improve patient compliance. With this in mind I began formulating products that were more inclusive and with higher therapeutic levels of the ingredients. My experience is that most patients have multiple health issues. If they can address all of their issues with a minimum number of products, they can improve their chances of patient compliance and positive treatment outcomes. This is exactly what BioGenesis products achieve. Positive feedback from patients and practitioners across the nation has confirmed this.
Practitioners design BioGenesis products because it is my belief that only active practicing clinicians can fully understand what works and what doesn’t. They observe the results. Although quality is essential for any formula to provide superior benefits, the formula itself needs to be designed with the creative insight that only active clinicians can provide. Their formulas are unique in that often several formulas are combined to form a whole that is more effective than the parts.
