Folate plays a role in the process of cell division
Methyltetrahydrofolate is the methyl group donor required for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Folate and vitamin B12 are also required for the synthesis of methionine and S-Adenosylmethionine ( SAMe). SAMe is the common methyl donor required for the maintenance of methylation patterns in DNA that determine gene expression and DNA conformation (Zingg and Jones, 1997).
5MTHF is also required for normal neurotransmitter production, such as serotonin, domamine, melatonin, adrenalin and noradrenalin. So is a good mood support and cardiovascular support.
5 MTHF is also important as the most bioavailable form of Folic Acid during pregnancy. It plays an important role in preventing chromosome breakage and hypomethylation of DNA. If folate deficiency occurs Uracil is incorporated into DNA instead of Thiamine(Eto and Krumdieck, 1986; Wagner, 1995; Fenech, 2001). This can lead to mutations.
