If you're one of the 40 - 60% of people that have some form of defect in one or both of the genes responsible for methylation (MTHFR polymorphism) and you want to try and bypass that blockage to get your methylation system back up to speed, then Metafolin (aka: 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, 5-MTHF, levomefolic acid, or l-methylfolate) is a vital part of the protocol. This is the form ultimately used by the body. If you're an ineffective methylator, it's also the one that works, because your body doesn't have to convert it further to be useful. If you're of caucasian, hispanic, or Mediterranean descent, or have a high IQ, your odds are higher.

This version (Metafolin) is the OTC strength (800 mcg) of the prescription Deplin (7.5 mg), but both are essentially the fully reduced (by methylation - what else) version of folate that the body actually uses...there are a number of enzyme mediated steps in converting folic acid and folates to the useable methylated form. It is also the only one that will cross the blood-brain barrier. Merck apparently figured out how to do the same thing and came up with a bioidentical form...and then patented their process for making it. I'm sure they knew about the distribution of the polymorphism and how big the market would be. I'm a business major, not a doctor. Props to Merck here, not slams.

This is one of the few times that I think a pharmaceutical company may have gotten it right and should serve as a lesson to the others...vitamins and minerals in their most useable forms are curative medicines...curative...they cure diseases...not just treat them. Name one man made synthetic drug, not based on copying a biological compound, that has that claim.

I have a Folate variation, and have to take a prescription Folate L-Methylfolate. The L-Methylfolate in the Solgar product is called Metafolin. (just a quick mention... folic acid isn't the same. I didn't know that before.).

The Solgar Folate is the only Folate I've taken that gives me a boost in the afternoon, when I'm starting to feel like I need a shot of B-12, or "I coulda used a V-8!", or a Red Bull... do you ever have that feeling where you really feel wilted?! I've found a couple of things that seem to really help, the Solgar Folate 800 mg. I'm trying a couple of new products and will review those after I've had a chance to give them a try.

The taste isn't bad, you can even chew them if you want. It has a bit of a sugary, but powdery taste - so you might want to follow it up with a sip of something. The bottle does say the product "provides an insignificant amount of sugar alcohols - if there are any people who need that information. The size is about the size of a regular Tylenol tablet - not at all difficult to swallow if you go that route .. instead of chewing! And it's "free of gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, yeast, sugar, sodium, and artificial colors and flavors".

As of the time I purchased there was not a subscription for this particular product, but I will continue to purchase as it is the best product at the most reasonable price that I have found!

Yes I have the MTHFR 677CT mutation (heterozygous) and have been taking Deplin since it first came out in 2008. I have tried other brands and nothing came close to working like Solgar's Folate. As time has gone I have been able to switch to Solgar Brand, and have reduced the deplin to 7.5mg and some days only take the Solgar 2X a day. I have researched Folate over the last five years and found that I respond better to Metafolin and to other forms of active folate sold over the counter, why I don't know and really don't care...Try this if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Deplin, maybe you will repond like I have. Nothing short of a miracle.....

I have MTHFR and had previously been taking 2 of the 400 mcg pills from Jarrow Formulas Methyl Folate 5-MTHF Nutritional Supplement, 400 Mg, 60 Count. I decided to try these 800 mcg Solgar and see how they worked for me.

I have some mysterious health issue that is neurological. Trying to diagnose that is what caused me to get tested for MTHFR in the first place. Certain foods and substances cause me nerve pain for a while after I ingest them. Taking one of these Solgar pills causes me tremendous nerve pain for about 12 hours after I take it. I don't have that problem with the Jarrow Formulas Methyl Folate pills.

There's one additional ingredient in the Solgar pills that the Jarrow Formulas doesn't have: Mannitol. I suspect that's what's causing my nerve pain. So these pills definitely don't work for me and I'll go back to using the Jarrow Formulas.

I seem to crave foods high in folate, regardless of my folic acid intake. I got these pills to test out the thesis. The product is kosher (kof-k), pareve, wheat and dairy free, and easy to swallow.

At 800mg, they are double the recommended amount, and this product is sold in the 400mg variety as well. I'd be nice if there was a way to split this pill in half easily.

If you need folate, excellent product.
