I'm fairly new to the whole methylation thing... (truth be told, I'm still struggling to wrap my head around most of it)... and I had a question.
I was supplement shopping today and found Solgar's Folate (Metafolin). What is the difference between this and 5-mthf? Do I want one over the other? (I have many blocked detox pathways, but starting here first...)
And what brand do you recommend for 5-mthf... Thorne's?
In terms of brands, 5-mthf is patented, so they're all using the same stuff. Feel free to shop around for the best price or the best combo with other nutrients!
Eating shouldn't be stressful!
Yup. We do 200mcg of each a day (I have to split capsules to make that work, but I do that anyhow, so it's not a big deal). While food has both forms, DS sees noticeable impact from supping these small amounts, so I assume he doesn't get all he needs from food.
