Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but has anyone found prenatal vitamins without iron and WITH either folinic acid or methylfolate? Iron makes my stomach hurt (I take Floravital instead, which does not), and I would like to get a more natural form of folate (i.e., NOT folic acid!) since I do have an MTHFR mutation. It's hard enough finding a vitamin that has folinic acid or methylfolate, but finding an iron-free one is proving impossible. I'm strongly considering just ordering a folinic acid supplement and just taking that, vitamin D, B12, and iron, but I'm sure there's other vitamins I'm not getting enough of...

Thorne research has a handful of methyl folate products. You could do a "seniors" mvi (no iron but should have a little of everything else). & their methyl folate. I'm a nutritionist/ dietitian and I tinkered around with this myself- mostly just doing Thorne methyl folate daily & their prenatal 3x weekly (bc I didn't need the extra iron).
