Rated 5 out of 5 by greatdane Be My Folate
This is an essential vitamin for people that often we are short on. Most versions of folate are not usable by the body, and even unhealthful.
This is the good stuff, and I appreciate the price and the small little capsule. Easy to take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peepers great product
This is an ingredient in my lotion. Excellent for the skin & it doesn't take large quantities to get the job done. I use it in the skin care products I make.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bulsa Maybe good but
outer seal is wasteful, un necessary. Contains Magnesium stearate = trans fat plant glue, bottle is only 20% full. I hope the product is good otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madelaine My favorite source of Methyl Folate
Genetic testing showed that my body cannot convert the various forms of folate found in food and in most supplements to the active form, methy-tetra- hydro-folate, or methyl folate for short, as efficiently as can people without the genetic variants. These variants are not rare. Methyl folate is the form needed by the brain. My doctor recommended taking folate in the MTHF (or methyl folate) form. I prefer this Swanson brand because it contains the patented and tested Quadrefolic TM and is priced well, especially during sales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shania2 Comparable to Other Expensive Brands
I have found this product to give results comparable to other 5-MTHF formulations, at half the cost. I will continue to buy this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Same product, much better price
My Integrative physician recommended this product. I had been buying from his office at a much higher price. He simplified it by looking at Swanson.com and helping me buy it online. Just the same quality and quantity at a much cheaper price. Fast shipping, easy ordering, what more could we ask?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ljimbo Great folic acid substitute!
Many people cannot metabolize folic acid to 5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid (methylfolate) very well and I am one of those people. I would not be without this supplement, it is so important to so many bodily functions. I take many supplements daily, but if I could only take one, this would be it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMRHPLC Good purchase
Functional deficiencies of folate are common, and this is a more bioavailable form than usual and a relatively high dose. You don't really have to worry about overdosing on this (within reason) so it makes sense to me to use this daily. Multivitamins generally will contain regular old folate and not 5-MTHF.

This product worked very well went my daughter was pregnant to supplement folate, and she's still using this while breastfeeding. Now I purchased this for my daughter in law now that she's pregnant. I take this, just because it makes me feel better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janellew1 made a difference
wanting actual folate; have read that the body doesn't make folate from folic acid too efficiently and folate is very good for the brain. This is such a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by vitaminsandminerals Naturally Good
I've needed to take a higher dose of folic acid, and this folate product is a more natural alternative with healthier results for me. The buy 1 get 1 free is a super value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BetsyBoo Helps my gut
This was recommended by various self-help sites, so I ordered it from Swanson, my go-to source for all things supplemental. This particular product certainly has helped my gut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clancy Convenient & Cost effective
This product is of a very bioavailable formula and of a dosage that can be effective by taking only 1 capsule daily. This also makes it cost effective as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjjustesen Can't beat the price and quality
My whole family takes this and we have felt great since starting on it. I buy all my supplements from Swanson's because I have totally shopped around and you can't beat their quality and price and customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by housemaid Many Need This & Don't Know It
I recently learned that 10% of people can't convert folic acid, and another 40% convert it poorly. Since it is so important to our health and I don't eat enough dark greens, I am going to make sure I get enough folate by taking this natural form. Glad Swanson has these somewhat hard to find supplements.
