  • Next generation folic acid supplementation with Quatrefolic technology

  • Delivers bioavailability for better utilization

  • Important support for cell growth, DNA synthesis and red blood cell production*

There's no question folate is important, especially for young women and expectant mothers. It's important for cell growth, DNA synthesis and red blood cell production.* But common folic acid supplements aren't very efficient. They must be metabolized for absorption and only a small percentage of folate actually makes it into the body. Quatrefolic changes everything with a scientifically advanced form of reduced folate that boasts long-lasting stability, high solubility and even better bioavailability than the leading brands. If you're serious about maintaining adequate folate levels, if you want a supplement you can truly rely on, Swanson Ultra Folate with Quatrefolic is the clear choice. It's the future of folic acid science helping secure the health of future generations.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Folate (5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy supplement I believe it is beneficial to add this supplement to my health regimen. I am glad it is available from Swanson.
Date published: 2017-09-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wrong size bottle These 30 tablets take up maybe a quarter of this small bottle. Please have this size bottle hold at least 60 capsules. This is wasting resources. This is a good product & would be a 5-Leaf rating in all categories if not for this issue.
Date published: 2016-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.
Date published: 2016-02-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to type of folate Highly absorbable form of folate. Use no other type.
Date published: 2016-02-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energizing B Supplement Excellent product. I begin each day with one capsule and feel quietly energized.
Date published: 2015-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from Excellent Quality and Value I've been using this daily for quite some time and find it to be the best I've found and at a fair price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product I get this for my son and I think it really helps his overall mood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i like this brand especially as it allows for easier absorption. Wish there was more in the bottle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Nicely packaged, good size for a pill, easy to swallow. Nice dose--not too high or low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfaction good quality / much better price :-)
Date published: 2013-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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?!
Date published: 2013-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2013-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is hte best All of us have deficit of folic acid so this the best one to use every day ;-) Also it's treating good PMS & other things ;-)
Date published: 2013-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Swanson Great Product Very impressed with this product. We will be reordering.
Date published: 2013-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! Purest form out there PERIOD! This is the only one I use.
Date published: 2013-06-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product 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.
Date published: 2013-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2013-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
