In this video, I’m going to talk about B9. There are a couple of different versions, one is folic acid, and the other is folate.

Folate vs folic acid:

Folic acid — This is the synthetic version which I don’t recommend.
Folate — This is the natural version from folate-rich foods like vegetables or organ meats.

If you’ve been wondering which is better, folate or folic acid, the better choice is folate.

Vitamin B9 is very important in many chemical reactions in the body, especially:

• Turning genes on and off
• DNA repair

This is a very common deficiency, and if you have a B9 deficiency, you could have a lot of body issues.

Not having the active form of B9, which is methylfolate, work in the body can lead to health issues like:

• High homocysteine
• Increased risk of cancer
• Heart disease
• Infertility
• Migraines
• Depression
• Inability to detoxify
• Problems with neurotransmitters

You have one problem of not getting enough of the natural vitamin B9 nutrient, but you may also be getting too much of the synthetic version. If you’re taking or being exposed to this synthetic version, you’re going to have a lot of additional problems.

How might you be consuming folic acid without knowing?

• Grains are fortified with folic acid
• From synthetic vitamins

If you are deficient in B9, you can try taking:

• L-methylfolate
• B12 (take the methyl version which is cobalamin)

27 gedachten over “Avoid Folic Acid & Take Folate (as methylfolate) – Folic Acid vs Folate | Dr.Berg

  1. Watched 2 videos about folate by Dr Berg. He did not mention in details about foods rich in folate. He is telling about supplements. Bro what's happening.

  2. Thank you Dr Berg I really needed to hear this! Your such an inspiration to us All! Much Love ❤️

  3. Does dim have folate in it

  4. Unbelievable!!! Nobody talks about this?? And this is something that is recommended for every pregnant woman forexample…

  5. Liver / Kale lol yuk , 23 and me is like a dna cold case crime sifter ( which is fine for getting the actual criminals, “ but we know that is sketch for real “ , and registered list like they want for 2 A , I enjoy and benefited from your work ‘ info and I’ll stick with that and not get stuck in a Tom Selleck film about prison , lol

  6. Folic acid different on alpha folic acid ???

  7. Where do you go if you want to check if you have the gene MTHFR? What kind of specialist or doctor?

  8. Dr. Berg, I have an ectopic pregnancy. I had the option to have the surgery or to take the chemo medication methtroxiate. I chose the medicine due to having the surgery for another ectopic pregnancy and didn't feel mentally prepared or prayed up for surgery. I have not been given enough information on foods I can eat since I have to avoid folic acid. Do you have any suggestions on what is safe to eat? I really want the medicine to work so I can avoid having to take more and possible surgery. It seems like all food has folic acid or folate.

  9. God bless you Dr. I'm on a mission to save my son from Autism.

  10. Problem here: all the supplements on the web that label “Methylfolate” are just “Folate” when you look at the list of ingredients. Where can we buy a supplement that just says “1000 mcg MethylFolate”?

  11. Is QUATREFOLIC better and safer to take than Folic Acid ?

  12. Folic acid prevents birth defects in pregnancy. That’s why pregnant women need vitamins.

  13. Do vegetables have higher amounts of folates than meat? Asking for a friend…

  14. L methylfolate is it same?

  15. Thank you for this information your a life saver!

  16. i have been diagnosed with folate deficiency because i am on anticonvulsent drugs and the Dr has recommended folic acid tablets 5mg a day for 4 months.

  17. Dr Berg, folate is also bad for under methylators!! It makes them anxious and can lead to cancer. It’s ok for over methylators. Folate would be ok for all others. Folic acid is supposedly ok for over methylators according to mensah medical.

  18. I'm MTHFR and have found that a multivitamin with Methylfolate and M-Cobalamin with the addition of Cyanocobalamin before bed really helps with sleep states. Yes I have tried the other forms of B-12 but I suspect that Cyanocobalamin crosses the blood brain barrier better – IDK, just a theory that explains, just hope this bit of info can help you sleep better, it has done wonders for me.

  19. I found one with “kalcium-L-metylfolat.(quatrefolic). Is this ok?

  20. Doctor's say take folic acid another one says don't take it you doctors need to get your stuff together and that's putting it nicely

  21. What are dosage of methylfolate?

  22. I have both polymorphism mutations. I take 15 mgs Methyl folate and methyl b-12.

  23. Change your nutritional yeast supplement with vitamin b9 from folic acid to something natural then please

  24. methyltertrahydropholicacid is it the same as your reccomended? Is it equal to the vitamin you are talking about?
