Please could someone explain the difference to me? I know it's been discussed already on this site, but I can't make head nor tail of it (brain doesn't function nowadays......).
When I studied chemistry, we were always told that ".....ic acid" was the same as ".....ate". For example, citric acid is the same thing as citrate, glutamic acid is the same as glutamate, etc. so I'm really puzzled to find that folic acid is not the same thing as folate!
Which one should I take, as a supplement?
