    Recently a number of people have asked about methylfolate brands that are not Metafolin. This site may have some answers about it. As only the L-methylfolate is active and these others are a mix people were wondering about effectiveness. A paper list on this site suggests that the inactove form might actually block the active L-methylfolate, so another form of paradoxical folate deficiency. In any case he is into testing for these and appears well on his way in research on the polymorphisms.

    Elsewhere on the site problems with some methylfolates are mentioned and articles.
