Folate (5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid)
i like this brand especially as it allows for easier absorption. Wish there was more in the bottle though.

Nicely packaged, good size for a pill, easy to swallow. Nice dose--not too high or low.

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.

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?!

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!

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 ;-)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Because I will have to take the methyl form of folic acid for the rest of my life, I need both quality and good value. This item is not available from very many sources and I have tried most of them. Swanson meets my requirements better than any other source I have tried.

I would have given all 5's but I go through the bottles way to fast. Please up the amount per bottle so it doesn't seem like you are going through a bottle a week. Otherwise, it works excellent, I can't believe the difference in my health, so thank you for that.

Price is good, there aren't that many folate products out there (there's lots of folic acid though). I would have preferred 400mg and more caps per container, I mean, if I am going to take it long term, why would I want to get it in 30 cap increments? But this will do.

Did not experience any notable changes
Having read good reviews about this product's distinct and advanced folate formula, I had high hopes for it. However, I couldn't tell any difference between this advanced product compared to standard folate in a regular multi. Perhaps others may.
July 29, 2012
Easy to swallow, unlike most of the tablets I've purchased before. After a month, I'm starting to feel the difference.
April 12, 2012
My son's skin looks great since taking this product.

You don't have to use as much as with the other forms of folate and the price is fantastic.
