Who Needs Folinic Acid

Are you sensitive to methylated nutrients, but need folate supplementation?

Folate is essential for healthy methylation, proper growth, development, and cognitive function.

However, some people are sensitive to the active form of folate, methylfolate. They experience side effects such as headaches, nervousness, or rapid heartbeat after taking methylated nutrients.

For these individuals, folinic acid is an excellent, bioavailable, methyl-free alternative.

Folinic Acid by Seeking Health contains a potent dose of methyl-free folate. Each capsule provides 1,360 mcg DFE (800 mcg) of folate as folinic acid, calcium salt.

Folinic acid is readily converted into methylfolate, the primary form of folate in the human body. In this way, folinic acid supports optimal methylation, homocysteine levels, and energy.

Folinic acid takes a few additional enzyme steps before methyl groups are formed and then released for your body to utilize. This slower delivery can provide relief and comfort in those sensitive to methylated nutrients.

Folinic Acid supports healthy:

  • Mood
  • Methylation
  • MTHFR function
  • Energy production
  • Homocysteine levels
  • Correction of folate deficiency
  • Cognitive, memory, and brain function
  • Nervous system function and development
  • Prevention of neural tube defects during pregnancy

You shouldn’t be struggling with side effects related to your dietary supplements. Now, you can provide your body the folate support it needs...without the headache of methyl donors!

Key Ingredients In Folinic Acid

  • Folinic acid: A precursor to the methylated form of folate, methylfolate. Supports healthy cognitive function, energy production, and cardiovascular function.

Why Folinic Acid Works

Your body produces folates through several enzymatic steps. The last step is the MTHFR enzyme, which generates the active biological form, methylfolate (also known as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate or 5-MTHF). The body uses this active form of folate to support the normal function of many processes including: methylation, cellular functioning, homocysteine breakdown, growth and development of the brain and spine, cognition, mood, detoxification, immune system function, and more.

One of the precursors to 5-MTHF is called folinic acid. It uniquely supports healthy formation and repair of RNA and DNA. It is much more metabolically active than food folates or folic acid supplementation. Folinic acid should not be confused with folic acid, a synthetic form of folate that is not well-utilized by the body.

Folinic acid requires only three enzymatic steps before being converted into 5-MTHF. For those sensitive to 5-MTHF, this makes a great solution for folate supplementation.

When methylated B vitamins are not an option, Folinic Acid provides bioactive folate support without the headache of methyl donors!

For a lozenge form of this product, consider our Folinic Acid Lozenges – great for those who struggle with swallowing capsules or pills. For an active, methylated form of folate, consider our L-5-MTHF Lozenges or L-5-MTHF Capsules.

How to Enhance Folinic Acid


Consider Pulsing

Dr. Ben Lynch recommends using certain dietary supplements based on your need for them. Start with a partial serving and increase slowly over time to the full serving, only if needed. When you start feeling good, consider reducing the serving size, skipping days, or pausing supplementation. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, chemical exposure, etc.), hence "pulsing." Work with your qualified healthcare practitioner to determine what's best for you.


Pairs Well With

Hydroxo B12, a methyl-free vitamin B12 that works alongside folate to support healthy methylation processes. Optimal Liposomal Glutathione, to support healthy oxidative stress responses for optimal methylation. P-5-P, a coenzyme form of vitamin B6 that supports normal levels of homocysteine.

FAQs for Folinic Acid

What is the purpose of each ingredient in Folinic Acid?

Ingredients Purpose
Folate (as folinic acid, calcium salt) Supports cellular health, healthy DNA/RNA synthesis, and normal growth and development

Who is Folinic Acid intended for?

Folinic Acid is intended for individuals who are sensitive to methylated nutrients and seeking folate support. This form of folate (vitamin B9) quickly converts to L-methylfolate, the predominant circulating form of folate in the body. Folinic acid may be easier for individuals to tolerate than L-methylfolate supplements. Folate is essential for cell division, growth, and the formation of new red blood cells.

How to use Folinic Acid?

Take 1 capsule daily with or without food, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not take within 5 hours of bedtime as it may interfere with sleep.
