Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (CH3 – one carbon attached to three hydrogens) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation to occur normally.
Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of 5-MTHF (the active form of folate), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active B6), and methylcobalamin (active B12), than our original Methyl-Guard. We have also added riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism and methylation.* These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients the body uses to push forward the process of methylation. Methyl-Guard Plus is more concentrated, so your patients will appreciate the recommended daily amount of three capsules, which will improve compliance. Our original Methyl-Guard is still available.
Suggested Use: Take 1-3 capsules daily or as recommended by your health practioner.

5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, 5-MTHF has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
