Does anybody know if there is a sublingual methylfolate available?

    Hi, I note that I have had a slight increase in acid reflux after starting methylfolate and wondered whether there is sublingual product available. I am currently taking Jarrow methyfolate capsules

    Thanks.

    I've found the Solgar tablets will dissolve sublingually. I have no idea how well methylfolate is absorbed by that route however.

    Brilliant!, I will check it out. I have a sensitive stomach and most folks on here take b12 as sublingual, so why not mfolate! I would also be interested to know how well absorbed it is sublingually.

    I have used these sublingual lozenges for a while:
    http://www.seekinghealth.com/active-b12-lozenge.html

    They seem to be well absorbed, even too much for my taste! :eek::)

    I got lots of anxiety with these at around 800-1000mcg with adrenaline surges that have been very unpleasant to say the least. The same doesn't happen with Metafolin taken orally, even @2000-2400mcg.

    My very non-scientific interpretation is that they absorb too fast and they hit my nervous system too quickly. I have noticed the same problem with fast dissolving B12 tablets vs those that dissolve more slowly. The former typically give me some anxiety.

    cheers

    I'm using Jarrow MB12, it dissolves slowly over a couple of hours or so, which is perfect for me as it spreads over the dose over the morning. I would like to take mfolate that way as it seems to affect my stomach. I was looking at seeking health active B12 but decided against it as it would be difficult to titrate but would use it once I have my individual sups upto those specified on the active b12 product label. I know Fredd says do not use Jarrow mb12, but I have found it to be good!

    Wonder if they've returned to their original formula? Jarrow's once had the very best b12, but it stopped working for me when they changed it.

    It certainly works for me, so they may have adjusted in the light of historical comments made on this forum.

    Are we getting B12 confused with methylfolate in this thread? I think the question was about folate.

    Hi Pete, really wanted to keep them split at first, then I can get the dosages up over time to the same levels as the seeking health active b12, then start taking them.

    Folapro is flavorless and I think it would be fine sublingually.

    Heck, maybe I even took it that way :).
