Folic acid is synthetic and inactive form of folate used in health supplement.
Generally folic acid is recommended for women who plans for pregnancy and in the first trimester of pregnancy for neural tube protection.
L-Methylfolate is active form of folate which can be utilised directly by our body.
Optimal level of L-Methylfolate in our body would support methylation cycle and
