Folic Acid must first be converted to its active form by a series of biochemical steps, before it is able to be used by the body. Metafolin (L-methylfolate) requires no conversion because it is bioidentical to the bio-active form. In other words, it is 'body-ready'. This can be useful for individuals whose bodies have difficulty converting folic acid to its active form. The active folate in this formulation promotes heart health. It also supports a healthy nervous system and the formation of healthy red blood cells.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take one (1) tablet one to two times daily, preferably at mealtime, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Folate has been recommended to help in depression and may have a calming effect. There is a prescription form of Metafolin called Deplin which comes in 8 milligrams (or 8000 micrograms), but there is a disclaimer that Metafolin may aid in the growth of tumors/cancer, especially in the GI tract (which makes sense because Metafolin is used in DNA synthesis and rapidly dividing cells need to make DNA). Note it won't cause cancer, but it may aid in the growth/spread of a tumor if it is there. Also if you are going through cancer treatment, don't take folate supplements. Anyways, if you want to see if Metafolin may help your symptoms, this could be a good starting dose with less risk.
I ordered these because I read somewhere that it can help with depression. Within the first two days I felt completely different. I immediately felt so happy and at peace with my self...something I haven't experienced in many years! I have taken many prescription medications for depression and none of them worked. It seems that I simply had a folic acid deficiency and I'm not crazy! I really recommend any female who is experiencing sadness or depression to try it. Also, the pills are really tiny and are easy to swallow.
Great for those with MTHFR gene mutations and mental health issues.

Have been taking this for a few months in combination with Solgar zinc picolinate 22mg. I have noticed a marked improvement in my mental health and energy. Highly recommend for those with MTHFR gene mutations and mental health issues.

Haven't had nearly as many bad days from depression/anxiety since I started taking this. It was recommended to me as a better supplement than folic acid (which I'm pretty sure made me worse), and I'm so glad I added this to my regimen. I take zinc picolinate with this by Thorne Research.
