    Hey all

    RichvanK suggest to take folinic acid as 5-formyltetrahydrofolat. Is there a product you can recommend for ex. On iHerb? I can only find 5-METHYLtetrahydrofolat

    Yes, I'm taking one per day.
    I take this form since I don't tolerate Methyl Folate.

    I haven't tried other brands so I can't compare.
    It's hard to say which symptoms it influences but I do generally feel better while taking it.

    Do you tolerate other methyl- supplement like methylcobalamin?
    I also poorly tolerate Methylfolat.. I think i have to try the Folinic acid?
    Did you start with full dose? Or slowly?

    I also cannot tolerate even a micro toothpick dose of Methyl Folate or M-B12 and I recently started on a new supplement by "Seeking Health" that is Hydroxy B-12 and Folinic Acid. It's only been two days but so far, no reaction of any kind. I started with the full dose and it's a tiny lozenge that is sublingual. I was hesitant b/c it has "natural cherry flavor" but I did not react to it whatsoever and so far I recommend it highly :thumbsup:.

    I also recommend it highly as well.

    I didn't tolerate methylfolate well at all -- unless I took it in very tiny doses occasionally -- but find folinic acid very beneficial. It actually helps me sleep better, almost too well. I've slept through loud clock-radio alarms, sometimes for 45 minutes. So I usually only take it about an hour or two before bed.

    I get the Kirkman's brand.

    Two years ago I couldn't, now I can. I'm not sure it's because I really tolerate it better or if it's because I take an other form now.
    I take the adenosyl/methyl combo B12 oil from b12oils now, there are some threads about it, here's one:
    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/transdermal-b12-oils.33172/
    I daily take one dose of hB12 and since two weeks added one dose of aB12/mB12 and I seem to do good on it.

    In my case the Folinic works much smoother.
    First I broke the tablets in pieces and started with 200 mcg, then 400 mcg, now I take the whole tablet.

    Same here but like I wrote above I do tolerate the mB12/aB12 oil, maybe because the mB12 is combined with aB12 or maybe because the intake is slower compared to tablets/sublinguals.

    Methyl Folate is still a problem (I recently tried it again) so I stick to the Folinic.
