I have mthfr, was rx'ed baby aspirin and folic acid. The more people i talk to the more tell me folic acid is harmful to take. What should I take?

Methylfolate: Folic acid = synthetic. Methylfolate = natural. Folic acid also decreases folate receptors on cells and decreases folate binding proteins (this is bad). Avoid folic acid. Buy Solgar brand methylfolate 800 mcg or other brand. See how you feel in the am. If tired and foggy headed, take one methylfolate.
