  • Methylfolate

    Thank you. Sorry only half of my message posted for some reason sorry. I'm not sure why. I will post it again.


    I know that its risky to take any vitamins whilst breastfeeding other than prenatal vitamins, but I have recently had blood work done and my folic acid levels are extremely low and need to be supplemented.

    I am currently nursing my three and a half year old infant.

    I have been reccomended Methyl Care by Metagenics.

    The ingredients per two capsules are as follows: ( I would take two capsules per day):

    Riboflavin 1.6 mg

    Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCL) 25 mg

    Folate (as L - 5 Methyltetrahydrofolate ) 800mcg

    Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 1000 mcg

    Zinc 1.5 mg

    Manganese 0.4 mg

    Molybdenum ( as Molybdenum Glycinate ) 15 mcg

    N - Acetyl- L- Cysteine 600 mg

    Betaine HCL 500 mg

    If I cant take this please advise what dosage of plain L Methylfolate I can take safely.

    Thank you
