Methylation is key to keeping homocysteine levels in check and maintaining a healthy level of homocysteine in the blood is seen as a leading biomarker for the maintenance of good cardiovascular health. Methyl-Guard Plus provides 5-MTHF (active folate) and the active, tissue-ready forms of vitamins B2, B6, and B12 to support healthy methylation for heart, blood vessel, brain, and bone health.
Both riboflavin and vitamin B6 contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal red blood cells and the maintenance of normal skin. Vitamin B6 alone contributes to normal cysteine synthesis, normal protein and glycogen metabolism, normal physiological function and normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Folate has a role in the process of cell division and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It also contributes to normal blood formation, normal amino acid synthesis, normal function of the immune system and normal homocysteine metabolism. Betaine contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism at a daily intake of at least 1.5g although an intake of in excess of 4g may significantly increase blood cholesterol levels.
- Take 1-3 capsules daily or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner

5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate’s anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source 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.
