The Difference Between Folic Acid and Folate: Which is Better?

Folic acid is to folate as pitocin is to oxytocin. The former is the synthetic form and the latter is the natural form.

The Linus Pauling Institute has some good information on what folate is. Chris Kesser and Wellness Mama both have very detailed posts about the differences between folic acid and folate. I highly recommend reading the articles and deciding which is best for you. It's easy to find folic acid supplements, but a bit more difficult to find folate supplements. Try searching for L-Methylfolate or
5-MTHF. Below are a few folate supplements.
