Folate Supplements

Folate is derived from the Latin word ‘folium’ which means ‘leaf.’ Those who aren’t getting enough folate from eating leafy green vegetables may want to consider supplementation. Folate plays profoundly far-reaching roles within biochemistry and is particularly important in supporting cellular methylation. The two main active forms of folate are L-methylfolate, also called L-5-MTHF, and folinic acid, also known as 5-formylTHF. Seeking Health offers both L-methylfolate and folinic acid as standalone supplements and in various formulas. Because folate is such an important nutrient, you will also find it in most of our multivitamins.*
