Methylfolate 5 mg - Now even PURER with Upgraded Magnafolate® PRO
Methyl-Life® products contain the most bioactive nutrient form of folate available today, L-Methylfolate (often denoted as L-MTHF, L-5-Methylenetretrahydrofolate, L-5-MTHF, (6S)-5-Methylfolate, etc). This is the ‘already converted’ form of the vitamin that is immediately ready for the body’s cells to use directly. It’s the only form of folate which crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Every bottle contains 90 chewable tablets for on-the-go lifestyles. Each tablet contains a therapeutic dose (5 mg) of internationally-patented L-Methylfolate as Magnafolate® PRO, proven to be the purest methylfolate on the planet.
In recent studies Magnafolate® PRO showed significantly greater purity, stability and potency results when compared against competing brands Quatrefolic® and Extrafolate®. This is because Magnafolate® is built on a calcium crystalline molecule structure just like the pharmaceutical brand of L-Methylfolate. So if you’re truly looking for professional strength, look no further. Read more about Magnafolate's® superiority.
Methyl-Life® is honored to have been the first company in the USA to offer this uniquely pure and superior form of L-Methylfolate, (Magnafolate®), to our customers for over 5 years now. And we remain proud that we can offer such an exceptional product line at such an affordable price point (because as a family-owned company, we know this is important to you). No other competitor sells a comparable product for less. We go above and beyond with our quality standards by investing in additional 3-year stability studies and third party lab testing to ensure our final products are the very best you can buy.
Spoiler alert ... our 5-year old products tested fully potent, but when tested against ours, the competitors' products did NOT meet the Supplement Facts claims after 5 years on the shelf.
Methyl-Life® Methylfolate 5 was formulated, especially for the people with genetic (MTHFR, MTR, MTRR) variants, dietary or drug-induced need. It was designed specifically to bypass genetic challenges and optimize the body’s methylation process. This means you may have more energy and motivation, get improved protection against toxins, and just plain feel better.
Moderate doses of L-Methylfolate are designed to support optimal brain health and function which could even affect mood. It can also convert homocysteine into methionine which can support cardiovascular health. L-Methylfolate can boost glutathione levels in the body (and glutathione is a great ally when it comes to detoxification, it’s your body’s strongest antioxidant). Talk to your doctor to determine, if taking a higher dose of L-Methylfolate is right for you.
WARNING – How much is right for you to take? Talk to your doctor about what’s best for you. Before you purchase check out our dosage information to learn more about what some doctors recommend. And review our suggested methylation protocol as a potential step by step guide to some dosing options.
How to snap the tablet in half – See how its done via video. First find the half hash line and face it away from yourself (with the back of the tablet facing your chest/stomach), then put both of your thumbs next to each other along the line (as if there were one on the back of the tablet). You want the half hash line facing away from you (not on the side of the tablet where your thumbs are). And then you should be able to break it in half along that line every time by simply applying pressure to snap it outwards, by pushing your thumbs away from you. This approach works far better than using a pill cutter, which seems to cause the tablet to crumble much more.
Great for teeth, not for animals (contains xylitol).

What is the right dosage for me?
Check out our Dosage page to learn what some doctors are saying. And consider reviewing our Methylation Protocol page as one example of how someone could start taking the active methylation nutrients.
Is Methylfolate the only thing I should take if I have an MTHFR gene mutation?
You can also download one of four specific Methylation Protocols which guide you through the beginning nutrients to start. We recommend starting low and slowly titrating up to a dose that works well for you long term.
You'll find our MTHFR Newbies page is very helpful as well. It's got some great tips for folks who haven't done much study on what to do if you have an MTHFR variant.
What do doctors have to say about MTHFR and how to treat it?Go to A Doctor Explains and listen to Dr. Neil Rawlins’ 51-minute seminar on MTHFR and the effects of Methylfolate.
How can I get more information on MTHFR?check out our Help for MTHFR Newbies page.
Is L-Methylfolate and (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, Calcium the same thing?Basically, yes. In the chemistry world, L stands for the “Left” isomer, which is the same as the “(6S)” isomer – the terms are synonyms (and this naming convention is used interchangeably by various companies in the industry). In the case of methylfolate, that L or (6S) isomer is the active isomer of 5-MTHF that the body can actually use. To learn more about the different types of methylfolate, its history, potency levels and stability details, and to see how our L-Methylfolate proves to be the purest on the planet, visit our Methylfolate Types page.
