  1. hi Chris thanks for that. My understanding was that folic acid has a propensity to block methylfolate receptor in cell membranes. can you comment on that?

  2. This is very interesting, but it seems like those who are doing better on synthetic folic acid are simply covering up another problem – the vitamin B12 deficiency which is causing them to not be able to metabolize methylfolate. I have read in places that folic acid and vitamin B12 should be taken together specifically for this purpose – the folic acid would “hide” the vitamin B12 deficiency while the negative effects of the B12 deficiency would continue and eventually result in nerve damage, etc.

    I was also convinced by natural health writers that methylfolate was better than folic acid. Taking methyl folate made me lightheaded, but folic acid didn’t. I’m not sure what that means, but I do react to many different supplements with lightheadedness.

    I actually did have my serum folic acid and vitamin B12 levels checked because I have had dizziness for while, but both came back normal. Then I learned through my own research that cerebral folate deficiency is where a person can have normal serum levels of folic acid but no methylfolate will reach their cerebral spinal fluid or brain. Some of the symptoms are – ataxia/dizziness (which I still have). I am on birth control and an anticonvulsant, both known to deplete folate in the body. I take folic acid, not every day, but it seems to have an intermittent effect.

    1. Thanks for sharing your story. I agree that if folic acid provides better effects than natural folate, it reveals another underlying problem.
