Methyl Folate ((6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid or (6S)-5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic is the 4th generation development in folate delivery. With certain inherited errors in metabolism and under a variety of physiologic stresses, the transformation of folic acid into the active form of folate either does not properly take place or is inadequate. Unlike folic acid, this form of folate can cross the blood-brain barrier. Methyl Folate is needed to support cardiovascular and neurologic health and proper cell division.
Health Claim: Healthful diets with adequate folic acid may reduce a woman's risk of having a child with certain brain or spinal cord defects.
Take 1 capsule per day with food or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
Cellulose and magnesium stearate (vegetable source). Capsule consists of gelatin.
No wheat, not gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts.
Note: The elderly should frequently check B12 status when taking folic acid as folic acid may mask pernicious anemia. If you have a medical condition, are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, under the age of 18, or taking medications (especially antiepileptic and chemotherapy medications), consult your healthcare professional before using this product.
Keep out of the reach of children.

I've had CFS for many years. I tried Solgar's equivalent product Metafolin. It worked but gave me an upset stomach. I can't afford an upset stomach as I have IBS symptoms so I tried this. This does the same thing without the stomach upset. What does it do? It changes my perception of, and tolerance to cold. I don't feel the cold as much basically. The cold used to always feel as if it was going into the bone but not anymore. It affected my brain fog in a subtle way. It didn't remove it (B12 patches did) but it improved my ability to focus my attention and eyes on one spot. Before taking it I'd be unable to focus and my attention would sort of be constantly hazy and scattered within the brain fog.
better absorbed, I love it

Direct the first day I felt the energy boost... I felt less good the next day , so better to start with a 1/2 capsule ,and see how you react. But without doubt very good stuff.
Excellent prenatal product

Every woman had to take folic acid as she is pregnant. Even right when we decided to have child we must started with folate. Methyl-form is easily absorbed in our body. It is necessary when there is MTHFR gene mutation. This means that our system has lower ability to convert the usual form of folic acid to its active form - methyl folate. Thats why with taking methyl-form of folic acid we jump over the difficult process with conversion of folic acid.
Excellent Product! Great Price!

I wish I had known about this when I was pregnant. These are tiny pills but they are affordable and help a lot with alleviating exhaustion and giving me more energy.
