I got this as a co-factor for my B12 and B complex and I'm extremely happy to have found a folate that actually has enough mcgs. Most brands use so little methylfolate that you would need to buy supplies every other day 😅. At least with this one you're set for a month.

This is one of the most important important supplement for depression. Methyl folate researched under the name deplin in the US as augmenting antidepressant medication in cases of resist depression (people who does not respond to medication). How it has affected me? Well, I’m my case I found myself less tired or more able to function under depression so it reduce fatigue. My mood improved to some extent, and some of my anxieties (especially the extreme) has reduced. How does it work? Well, the methylation process increases the levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in your brain. However, be cautious if you have bipolar, or if you have low levels of vitam b12. Tell your doctor about this, this is a drug in us. I usually take 1.5 tablets (15 mg), but sometimes reduce dosage or stop taking it to some period.

The dose is huge, not for everyone but for somebody with neurological or methylation problems may be very beneficial. This is the best form of folic acid. The tablets are small and easy to swallow. The price is not cheap but there is no choice of 5,000 mcg in the market so this one is a good value.

This product, folate, was recommended by my MD because I have the genetic factor that keeps me from making the right kind. It seems to work pretty well when I combine it with the B complex that lacks folate, or that has folic acid in it.

After a decade of supplementing with B-complex formulas, serum test last year showed that my serum values for B12 came back at 3 times the high end of normal while serum folate was low. B-complex formulas are obviously not for me. They usually contain folic acid, which as shown I do not metabolise, and always (without exception!) a a huge amount of B12. Now I use B vitamnines separately, depending on the need. Latest test show that my serum folate is adequate, somewhere in the middle, B12 is still high but falling. Next time will buy a smaller dose of methyl folate, most likely 800 mcg.

folate is more natural than folic acid. When taking a high amount of folate, I prefer taking this instead of folic acid as changing folic acid to folate, your body need work more to do with it while folate can be absorb directly. (even though when u take more than needed, it will just leave your body) Thalassemia need large amount of folate to keep their blood in good condition. This product change to 8500mcg DFE instead of 5000mcg.

It's ok. Small tablet easy to swallow and no taste. Reduces white hair. Good amount of l-methylpholate in a single tablet.
