Carnitine is an amino acid derivative, with a role in energy metabolism.

It’s energy-releasing role comes from its function as an intra-cellular transporter of fatty acids; it carries activated fatty acids into the mitochondrion for oxidation, and carries bi-products out of the mitochondrion to prevent build up. This is of particular significance to tissues that have a greater dependence on fats as their energy source. These include skeletal and cardiac muscle groups.

Carnitine is synthesised in the liver and kidneys, from lysine and methionine. In a normal individual, consuming a normal diet, the body should produce sufficient carnitine to make up for any shortfall in dietary intake.

The body is able to adapt its absorption of carnitine in response to intake; lower intakes of carnitine are generally better absorbed than high intakes. This means that vegetarians should be at no greater risk of deficiency, even though a vegetarian diet will tend to provide lower amounts of dietary carnitine. It’s thought that on average about a sixth (16%) of ingested carnitine is absorbed.

A concentrated dose of folic acid, also referred to as 5MTHF.

Full product description

Methyltetrahydrofolate Capsules

Folic Acid needs to be converted (methylated) in the intestines and liver to its active form 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MeTHF) which is found in the blood and utilised by tissues. A very high percentage of people (60% in USA), have a genetic enzyme defect preventing them from converting Folic Acid to 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, so 5 MTHF may be the only effective form of Folate supplementation for these people.

Why Use Metabolics Methyltetrahydrofolate?

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.
