Best brand for Methylfolate supplement?
August 3, 2017 2:00 PM   Subscribe

Can you recommend a good brand of Methylfolate supplement? A doctor has recommended this product, but I don't know if the recommendation has anything more behind it than "here's the first one I found on the amazon website!" I know that the vitamin and supplement industry is the Wild Unregulated West, and I want tablets that live up to their labeling and use fillers that aren't egregiously objectionable. Is this one worth buying? Would you recommend another?

Since this is on your doctor's recommendation, you should get a scrip for it and a pharmacy will fill it for you, so you don't need to worry about the sketchy supplement world. Bonus points, your insurance might cover it (mine did!).

I've taken this one for over a year and I haven't had any adverse effects. Bonus: it's subscribe and save, so I don't have to remember to refill it.

A clarification: I am in a country where methylfolate is not available, and have to order it off-script from the US. This is why I'm not 100% confident in the doctor's brand recommendation.

I bought this. I like NOW brand because their products are vegan and natural and tend to have only a few ingredients/no fillers. You can see the ingredients here. The one you listed does seem to have a lot of other crap.

I take B-Complex +5 mg L-Methylfolate from Quatrefolic from MethylPro . My doctor recommended the site, and I have been happy so far with their services. I don't know if they ship outside the US though.

My doc recommended this brand. They smell terrible but get great reviews on Amazon, for whatever that's worth.
