  • Methyl Folate from Jarrow

  • More stable, more bioavailable form of folate

  • 4th Generation Folic Acid Technology

Jarrow Methyl Folate delivers 400 mcg of stable, bioavailable folate in each serving. Methyl folate is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic® is the fourth 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. This form of folate can cross the blood-brain barrier. Methyl Folate is needed to support cardiovascular and neurological health and proper cell division. No wheat, gluten, soybeans, dairy, egg, fish/shellfish or peanuts/tree nuts.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Methyl Folate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Quality, Great Price Methyl Folate is an upgrade from the regular folic acid I was prescribed by my Acupuncturist. I had previously researched and tried Jarrow Methyl B12, and found that Jarrow Folate indeed provides better absorption in conjunction with stomach acid and maintaining a good appetite, as well as protein metabolism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good Folate source I use the methyl forms of both B12 and folate. Do I need to do that? I don't know. I prefer those forms, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Methyl Folate is Great! I've been taking this product for a few weeks now and I can feel the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My folate was low and I could not get it to come up. I read about methylfolate and sure enough it worked!
Date published: 2015-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from methyl folate not folic acid I read that synthetic folic acid is not a good source because it is poorly metabolized and large amounts of unmetabolized folic acid might present health risks, in addition to possibly masking vitamin B12 deficiency. Some people may actually be getting too much folic acid since it is frequently added to processed foods. The preferred form is methyl folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate, 5-MTHF or Quartrefolic). It is best taken in conjunction with vitamin B12 as the two interact. Jarrow has a good reputation, I assume their quality is good. Note: if you don't want to take methyl folate as a separate supplement, Swanson's "High Potency Activated B-Complex -- High Bioavailability Formula" has 800 mcg. of methyl folate in addition to the other B vitamins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from methylfolate A friend recommended I try this for energy and it has worked wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I was very happy to find methyl-folate that was both affordable & in a sensible dosage for me. I also like the fact that these are easy to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Methyl Folate I can't use rice flour as a filler and was thrilled to find a methyl folate without one (Jarrow Brand). I've always trusted Jarrow quality, so this purchase was a no brainer! I will definitely keep buying this very effective form of folate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective I trust Jarrow quality. I need the methyl formulations, and appreciate the availability of the lower dose (so many are higher, and that is not necessarily a good thing!).
