Folate is one of the first nutrients you might think of to support methylation, and for important national health initiatives like the prevention of neural tube defects. We have dedicated quite a bit of page-space to this vital nutrient in our work on epigenetic health through the Methylation Diet and Lifestyle, discussing the potential risks of too little or too much folate. So when I came across this write up by my friend, colleague and mentor Jeff Bland, published last month, I wanted to highlight it here too. Jeff and his team have summarized the key points-to-know and get straight to the heart of the potential issues with pushing too much folate, with synthetic folic acid, and the folate-B12 ‘trap’. – DrKF
