For pregnancy

Dave Asprey makes an important point in his baby-making manifesto, the garden-variety folic acid that you can find in white plastic bottles at any vitamin shop is lacking...

Nearly everyone has heard that pregnant women should take folic acid to prevent birth defects. What they haven't heard is that folic acid is the synthetic form and that only a small percentage of folic acid converts to the active form, which is called folate or folinic acid (sometimes marketed as tetrahydorfolate or 5-MTHF). To make matters worse, 60 percent of people have genes that reduce their ability to convert folic acid into the active form. We need the active form of folate to synthesize, repair, and express DNA—all essential processes for using epigenetics to improve your baby's lifelong health. (p. 136)

Supplementing with folinic acid especially helps to prevent fetal abnormalities relating to neural tube defects. Studies suggest that women who supplement with folate during the month of conception and the first eight to ten weeks after conception are less likely to have a malformed baby. We recommend taking 800 micrograms per day. Good sources of the active form of folate are green leafy vegetables, organ meats, root vegetables, and nuts. Folinic acid supplements are very affordable, and it's worth spending about five dollars more a month to get this form instead of plain folic acid. When taken as a supplement, synthetic folic acid begins to accumulate in the bloodstream at just 400 micrograms per day. This means it isn't being processed by the body. (pp. 136-137).


Ben Greenfield, in his exhaustive section on vitamins in Boundless, writes...

For vitamin B supplementation, look into full-spectrum vitamin B blends that use only the highly bioavailable form of vitamin B called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). (I recommend the Thorne Multivitamin Complex and the herbal smart drug Qualia, a nootropic with plenty more than B vitamins in it.) (p.39)

Downloadable Folate?

You may be interested in taking it as an infoceutical - a non-pharmacological, side-effect-free version of the supplement that takes advantage of the phenomenon of water memory - which is imprinted on water via quantum collocation and electromagnetism using this device...

Infocueticals typically have 1/3 or half the effect of the actual medicine being imprinted. If you're skeptical of Infopathy that's understandable, it's a game-changing application of a little-known scientific phenomenon. But I'd urge you to evaluate the scientific evidence (presented in my biohacker review) that downloadable medicine is no longer science fiction...
