For MTHFR, are the B12, folate found in liver or egg yolks already methylated? And does cooking damage them? Or are supplements needed? I started on methylfolate in the AM and methyl B12 at night, and have noticed some improvements in sleep... (more)

This may be a bit of a long post. Apologies in advance: I wanted to just get it out there. I began taking B12 (methylcobalamin) and folate (methylfolate), & ~2,500 IU D3/ 500mg K2 recently. While the symptoms & dramatic... (more)

How much sodium are you getting? I found more sodium, less potassium really helps with the neurological issues I've had (especially tingling).

I and several of my family members have MTHFR mutations. They can predispose you to blood clots, cardiovascular problems, and neuro-psychiatric problems. It's a complicated issue and I find it quite difficult to understand. The short version of... (more)

I am homozygous recessive for MTRR a66g, which is methionine synthase reductase. According to 23 and me i have lots of methylation problems, but none with the MTHFR gene. Does anybody have a good understanding of this and what I should do given... (more)

I also have the MTRR mutation: it's pretty rare. Since this stuff isn't well established, but is based on basic biochemical pathways and as-yet-untested hypotheses, I highly recommend looking into it yourself. The methylation subforum on... (more)

I'v spent an enormous amount of time and read all kinds of theoretical info about methylation causing excess sulfur and ammonia. Does anyone here have that issue or is this all ivory tower theoretical stuff? Ever since going paleo and... (more)

I recently found out (from 23andme) that I am heterogeneous (one copy of the "bad" gene) for the MTHFR C677T polymorphism. This means that my body has reduced ability to convert folate into the active form of folate (5-methyltetrahydrafolate).... (more)

I discovered I had this gene (hetero like you) on 23andme and started taking the active folate. Then I had a blood test and my folate was absurdly high. I have sinced eased off on the supplementation as in spite of my wack gene, I seem to be... (more)

While trying to further optimize my diet, I recently noticed that I have a homozygous C677T (TT genotype) MTHFR enzyme. Homozygous rs1801133(T;T) individuals have ~30% of the expected MTHFR enzyme activity, and rs1801133(C;T) heterozygotes... (more)

Great question. ATM I can't really answer that well other than to suggest that if homocysteine levels are not suspiciously high then folate supplementation may not be necessary (as the gene may not be expressed if methylcation cycle is functioning... (more)

Hi Guys, I'm about 2 months into a strict primal diet that does include raw dairy and nuts, but does not include starchy veggies. I look and feel better already and I'm really excited to watch my progression in the upcoming year. One thing I've... (more)

After 10-15 years of on and off smoking, I'm done done done. We're getting ready to start a family, and with the switch to paleo, I'm focusing on healing my body after all the damage I've done. Are there any supplements or foods I should focus... (more)

Congrats! Pregnancy coach here. I generally suggest that moms-to-be skip the prenatal & supplement separately, but do what works for you. I also recommend krill oil supplements, rather than fish oil or CLO. Cellular repair is key, so... (more)
