It's 1000 mcg of folate (RDA for pregnancy is 600mcg), and L-5-MTHF is just referring to the form of folate. In some of their blends I think they have "quatrefolate" which is just their blend of four different types of folate...methyl folate, folinic acid, and a couple others. Their supplements are geared toward people with the MTHFR gene defect, who have trouble metabolizing folic acid, so they offer different forms to give you the best chance of utilizing it. If you don't have the defect, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I just like having the solo folate on hand for days when I forget to take all of my prenatals (8 pills a day and can't take them within 5 hours of bedtime = I forget a lot!). DS was tongue and lip tied, technically midline defects, so I'm pretty serious about my folate!
