Review 5 for Vitacost Bioavailable Folate Featuring Quatrefolic® -- 800 mcg - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Small capsules, great form of folate
February 16, 2013
"These little capsules go down so much more easily than tablets. Each capsule contains 800 mics of folate, which is the perfect amount to add to the 400 mics in my multivitamin. The form of folate used in this formulation is more bioavailabe than standard synthetic folic acid, which makes it a better value, IMO."
