Was wondering if anyone with a chemistry bent could explain the difference between folic acid and folinic acid and whether folinic is better than folic for those of us with PA? I've just been to the doctor for my B12 injection and he said that not all of the folic acid is converted, whereas the folinic is but, given that folinic appears to be twice the price of folic (in Australia at least) I was wondering whether that was true and thus worth the additional cost. He also suggested taking 1000mcg daily, which is double the folic acid that I'm currently taking.
I won't even start on his statement that there is proof (somewhere - took him six months to find it) that sublingual B12 is just as effective as injections...
Any feedback appreciated. Thanks.
