Folate in Multi Vitamin? - swimman - 10-21-2017 08:40 AM

I was just diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with homozygous C6777T and have a question about my multi vitamin. My previous multi contained folic acid which I have stopped taking. I'm looking for a new one but most either have folic acid or folate. Is folate safe to take or does it have to be the methylated kind? The vitamin I am considering lists, 'Folate (from Organic Food Blend),' on the label.

That is probably the manufacturer to be sure.

The folic acid that you want to avoid is a synthetic form; it would not be derived from food.
