Elfolate® and Elfolate® Plus contain L-methylfolate which is used to treat and prevent low levels of folate in the body. Folate is a B-vitamin naturally found in some foods, and is required by the body to form healthy cells. Elfolate® is Aventura Pharmaceuticals’ brand of L-methyltetrahydrofolate. It is a medical food, manufactured to pharmaceutical standards, more stringent than what the FDA requires.
Our “super pure” patented active pharmaceutical ingredient is sourced in Europe and manufactured in the U.S. to the highest quality standards. Every batch of finished product is tested for purity and potency, and Aventura Pharmaceuticals retains a COA (certificate of analysis) for each batch.
Elfolate® and Elfolate® Plus are priced as generics, and patients will pay a generic co-pay with most insurance plans. Elfolate® and Elfolate® Plus are available at CVS, Rite Aid, and Target Pharmacies and many fine independent pharmacies, as well as Amazon.com.
Elfolate® is recommended with prescription medications, to provide a nutritional supplement often helpful in patients with depression, dementia and MTHFR gene mutations.
Elfolate® Plus is recommended in combination with other prescription medications used for diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
