Take methylfolate its natural and also best absorbed. Folic acid is cheap and also synthetic and poorly absorbed also folic acid usage have cancer risk. So its best to take methyfolate if you are deficient in folate.

Just like methyfolate for b12 take methylb12. Its best absorbed form.

Methylb12 is very useful for cognition, nervous system, memory etc while too much folate can have negative side effects like poor memory. Take folate only if you have a deficiency .


Thank you for spoon feeding me.

I couldn’t find Folate separately.

Thanks again
