In Vimmortal 1.0, folate/B9, in the form of hydro tetrafolinic acid, was 100mcg or 25% DV

Keep this amount? Any research or rationale to suggest this value should be changed?

That's how it's listed on the label, but is that a typo that we missed? What exactly is "hydro tetrafolinic acid"? This sounds wrong. Folinic acid isn't a tetramer; it's a 5-formyl tetrahydrofolate. Is it really just folinic acid?

We will have to go back and look over our version 1.0 discussions. I just copied the name from the label, being the supplement neophyte that I am.

Don't feel bad about it. Label typos are not something we should have; they are a serious blow-it, and are indicative of a lack of technical expertise and generally imply shoddy products. I think in the future, the expert panel should sign off on the label before it goes out.
