Product Information

Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (CH4 – 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.

PREGNANCY WARNING

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS
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.

Health-Care Professional Resources

Heart Health Webinar

Alan Miller, ND, presents an explanation of the research behind the use of red yeast rice, methylation promoters, and nitric oxide cofactors for cardiovascular health. This 30-minute webinar explains how L-arginine and specific antioxidants and nutrient and botanical cofactors influence cardiovascular health; how 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF - the active form of folate), vitamins B2, B6, B12, and betaine support heart health by reducing homocysteine; and how red yeast rice helps support normal cholesterol levels.
