I ordered this product which clearly states in the photo and on my receipt---L-Methylfolate. The product bottle I received looks identical except for there is no "L" before the Methylfolate. I have researched this product and learned that if the "L" is not on the label it is probably the "D" form of methyfolate which is inferior. I e-mailed I-Herb only to get a cut and paste response telling me how the product works. I will be returning this product but would like a response from the company addressing why I was sent a product different from what I ordered.

Changing my life for the better!

Posted by Reviewer1399339 on Jan 06, 2012

I was on another brand for quite a while but have had a noticeable difference with this small convenient capsule. One capsule does the job and I am very pleased to no longer have to be taking numerous large capsules. This is to replace a prescription for Cerefolin NAC and I just had my blood work done about 10 days ago ... yes, it is saturating my blood which is all I can ask for. I will know in about 3 more months if it is working on my MTHFR (B-12/folic acid) genetic type anemia, but I am very pleased so far with my results. I do feel better on Metabolic Maintenance L-Methylfolate and had a noticeable improvement from the previous brand. I am sticking with Metabolic Maintenance FOR LIFE so I pray they are a strong provider and can weather all the restrictions imposed by the FDA etc. trying to drive manufactures of our sometimes life saving supplements out of business. We have to fight for our "health freedom" rights or the day may come when iherb.com cannot provide us such awesome deals of the nutrients we need.

Excellent Product

Posted by Reviewer3089304 on Oct 09, 2011

This is the only high mg 5-MTHF product I could find without a prescription for Deplin (which comes in 7.5mg and 15mg sizes BUT who knows how much 5-MTHF is actually in Deplin). The price is a bit high but nothing compared to Depin, if you don't have insurance that covers it, OR with what it would cost to take 10 pills of other 1mg size caps! Thanks for offering this.

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

Posted by Reviewer1688301 on Feb 29, 2012

I've been having problems with mood my whole life but the last few years I've lost most of my concentration and a lot of long-term memory. The L-Methylfolate was prescribed for me and has given me back my life. I'm even healing faster than I have in many years. Awesome.

Not L-Methyl folate anymore.

Posted by Reviewer2298481 on Oct 03, 2013

This is different from the product description, the formula has now changed. It is not the L form anymore but a mixture of the L and D form. Not recommended as the D form is not biologically active and it is impossible to say how much fo the L form us present in the product. The Quatrefolic from this brand IS better but very expensive. Good quality alternatives are the Throne Research 5mg L-Methylfolate and Allergy Research Group Quatre Folate 500mcg of which I have used both and it is hard to say which one I prefer......
