Folate has been recommended to help in depression and may have a calming effect. There is a prescription form of Metafolin called Deplin which comes in 8 milligrams (or 8000 micrograms), but there is a disclaimer that Metafolin may aid in the growth of tumors/cancer, especially in the GI tract (which makes sense because Metafolin is used in DNA synthesis and rapidly dividing cells need to make DNA). Note it won't cause cancer, but it may aid in the growth/spread of a tumor if it is there. Also if you are going through cancer treatment, don't take folate supplements. Anyways, if you want to see if Metafolin may help your symptoms, this could be a good starting dose with less risk.

Most vendors sell only folic acid, a synthetic product. This is real folate. At 400 mcg I really don't expect miracles of healing. It is a good adjunct to other B vitamins. I also ordered the combo with the 800 mcg bottle that I have not used yet since my multivitamin has 800 mcg in it and is almost gone now. The expire date could better. It is only Oct 2010. They currently show only Sept 2010 so do check it out first.

it's been 30 days since I start taking methylfolates 400 mcg a day. It's working ok for me. No side effects.

My collegues ate thie when they prepare pregnant and it is good. There is no side effect and pellet size is small and not difficult to swallow it.
