Jarrow Formulas, Methyl Folate, 400 mcg, 60 Capsules8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid Glucosamine Salt
- 4th Generation Folic Acid Technology
- The More Stable, More Bioavailable Form of Folate
- Dietary Supplement
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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
These capsules are itty bitty and my child swallows them easily. Methyl Folate, at the low 400 dosage, is important for people with the genetic MTHFR issue. This is a great product.
