    Hi,

    Can you guys pls tell me if these supplements would be okay (no follic acid and non-racemic form) to treat a folate deficiency :

    - L-5-MTHF 1000 - 60 Vegetarian Capsules - Seeking Health
    http://www.yourhealthbasket.co.uk/index.php?l=product_detail&p=2245

    - Jarrow Formulas, Methyl Folate, 60 Capsules
    http://www.iherb.com/Jarrow-Formula...=0&lc=en-US&w=jarrow folate&rc=7&sr=null&ic=1

    I'm also looking for a good b-complex because I took Jarrow B-right until now and I highly suspect it might have worsen the deficiency due to the follic acid in it.

    Are these ones good :

    - Super B Complete 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    - Thorne Research, Stress B-Complex, 60 Veggie Caps
    http://www.iherb.com/Thorne-Researc...en-US&w=thorne b complex&rc=1049&sr=null&ic=4

    How much folate can I take and should I take Methylcobalamin along with it? Thanks

    Best regards from France,
    Adrien

    The Seeking Health ones should be good. They are formulated by Dr. Lynch who specializes in mutations. I know some others here use the Solgar methylfolate. I just ordered some Solgar myself because it's cheaper. I got it off Amazon.

    Thanks for your reply, it was out of stock so I ordered the integrated health brand 5-MTHF, I asked the company and they did confirm me this contains only the active non-racemic form of folate and no folic acid.
