5-MTHF is an active, tissue-ready form of folate. It’s an essential B vitamin that supports healthy methylation, fetal development, mood, and cardiovascular and nerve function.*
Thorne’s 5-MTHF includes ingredients that are tissue-ready and in their most bioavailable form for better absorption.*
One study found a 600-percent greater blood level of 5-MTHF after supplementation with 5-MTHF compared to folic acid supplementation.* (Source: Willems F, Boers G, Blom H, et al. Pharmacokinetic study on the utilization of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate and folic acid. . . . Br J Pharmacol 2004;141:825-830.)
In conjunction with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor, facilitating the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine.* Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA.*
Thorne only partners with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science, and responsibility. Better ingredients means better potency, absorption, and absorbability.* 5-MTHF 1 mg Folate is a Thorne Exclusive because it contains ingredients exclusively sold to Thorne.
When our tissues need additional blood supply, like during exercise, or when we’re stressed, our blood vessels need to dilate efficiently. If blood vessels are not as elastic as they should be, then our health can suffer. The production of nitric oxide is very important to blood vessel health.* When an adequate amount of nitric oxide is produced in our blood vessels, the vessels are more elastic, normal blood pressure can be maintained, sexual arousal occurs normally, and cardiovascular health is promoted.* Thorne supplements enhance the body’s production of nitric oxide, thus promoting healthy blood vessels.*
When the highest standards have been met, Thorne creates higher ones.
Sourcing Exceptional Ingredients
We develop better standards for higher quality ingredients. Thorne cares deeply about where our ingredients come from. We partner only with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science, and responsibility. Better ingredients means better potency, absorption, and digestibility – and ultimately better health.
Manufacturing the Right Way
We manufacture our own products to ensure full supply chain transparency. For more than 30 years, we have invested in clean manufacturing practices. We refuse to use ingredients that can inhibit absorption. We perform our final production in the United States. Our Charleston, SC facility is third-party certified.
Four Rounds of Testing
We run four rounds of testing for each of our products. We have invested in two state-of-the-art in-house laboratories that allow us to conduct four rounds of testing, while most competitors test only one or two times. We test our raw materials, in-process batches, finish products, and product stability for each product.
We’re thinking sustainably to protect our environment. We believe the environment should never be compromised for the sake of business gain. At Thorne, we believe that doing our part to protect the environment and its most valuable resources goes hand in hand with our product quality standards.
