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.Read more ›
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!

As Dr Mark Hyman warns: "Man-made molecules do funny, unpredictable things because they don't work with our normal biochemical pathways. Nature made molecules we have consumed for millennia work with our bodies. Folic acid, the molecule that is used to fortify our food supply, is used in most studies and in most vitamins. It is a man-made, funny looking molecule - a fully oxidized, synthetic chemical compound that seems to cause [more] mischief [than good]. It costs less and is more stable than the nature-made form of this nutrient.
"On the other hand, the nature-made form or forms, called "folates," do not seem to cause problems. This molecule is often found in foliage - dark green leafy vegetables, hence the name folate. This can enter your normal biochemical pathways and gets properly metabolized. The folic acid may not be converted or metabolized by the body, increasing cancer and disease risk. The excess folic acid becomes oxidized and promotes free radical production and genetic instability leading to cancer and other disease.
"The nature-made form of this nutrient - called methyl folate (and there are a few forms of that too) - is what should be in food and vitamin supplements. Many conscientious companies are now using only this form of the nutrient, but it is more expensive.Read more ›
