Douglas Laboratories Methyl Folate supplies 1,000 mcg of biologically active folate per tablet from Metafolin, a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR). In certain populations, the body’s ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences.Metafolin contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Folate is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with folate before and during the first two months of pregnancy can prevent neural tube defects in the fetus. Additionally, folate plays a key role in red blood cell production and the formation of methionine.

After 16 years of migraine, this product helped my wife living free of them.
The ingredient listing on this website claims that the ingredients include "vegetable stearate", but when I received the product, the bottle clearly states that it is "magnesium stearate"!! If you are sensitive to magnesium stearate in particular, be warned as the website is misleading.
My wife use it for migraine control. It helps a lot.
