These pills are fine but after I ordered I realized that Folate and folic acid are two different forms of vitamin B9 but are used interchangeably so often that most people assume they are the same. Folate is the common form of vitamin B9 present in many whole foods, including leafy greens, beans, eggs, citrus fruit, avocados, and beef liver. On the other hand, folic acid is a synthesized version of vitamin B9 that is added to processed foods and the common version used in supplements. Folic acid has a molecular structure that is nearly identical to folate. Due to their close resemblance, folic acid and folate are widely considered to be the same. BUT: Excessive folic acid intake is correlated with significant health risks Folates is the natural form of vitamin B9 so therefore easily converted to B9 and so there are no health risks.

It did help with my energy level and my folic deficiency. Although I just found out it’s prescribed for pregnant women. I’m not pregnant.

I was low in B12 and was advised to take B12 in combination with Folic acid. There are supplements that combine the 2 ,but I learned it later,after I purchased this one.I guess my next purchase will be of a combined B12+folic acid.

The folic acid seems like a good, cheap alternative for the brands we have currently. Arrived quickly, seems like a good package.
