Folinic Acid is an excellent alternative to methylfolate for individuals who are sensitive to methylated B vitamins, but who may also have sensitivities to synthetic folic acid. Unlike methylfolate, folinic acid does not contribute to intake of methyl groups, but unlike folic acid for many individuals (such as those with MTHFR mutations), folinic acid is easily converted to the active circulating form of folate and utilized within the body. We always recommend talking to your doctor prior to taking Folinic Acid capsules or any supplement.
