Thorne Research, Folacal, 60 Veggie Caps10 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 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.

Administration of folinic acid bypasses several steps required of folic acid to become this bioactive form of folate. Folinic acid is a more metabolically active form of folate, capable of boosting levels of the coenzyme forms of the vitamin in circumstances where folic acid has little to no effect. Another benefit of folinic acid is that it is the form of folate responsible for proper DNA and RNA synthesis. Thorne supplies 800 mcg of folinic acid in each capsule of Folacal.
It is important for women of childbearing age to get enough folic acid, not just those who are planning to become pregnant. Only 50 percent of pregnancies are planned, so any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day, especially before conception and during early pregnancy.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been taking folinic acid for just over 6 months now - Thorne Research Folacal, Folate; or Natural Sources Megafolinic. It was prescribed by my medical practioner for a double MTHFR gene mutation with difficulty processing vitamin B. I also take Natural factors Vitamin B12, methylcobalamin. I am sleeping better, and waking up ready to face the day. I have not felt this well for a very, very, long time.
I'm taking this (a quarter of a capsule) as part of a methylation protocol to help with ME/CFS. It works.
