    Hi —

    I think it’s very likely I have the MTHFR, for multiple reasons (otherwise healthy but a homocysteine of 15; full Ashkenazi Jewish; etc) and I’d like to take some vitamins or over-the-counter supplements to help me out. What do you recommend? Some people say B-complex, but then some sources are saying that not all B-vitamins are equal, but we need certain forms of the B vitamins. Is there a B-complex especially for people with the MTHFR? Thanks!

    Hi Morgan –

    A high homocysteine and Jewish are key indicators for MTHFR C677T.

    I recommend you consider taking a multivitamin with methylfolate – Optimal Multivitamin has the full blend of active B vitamins in their best forms along with the most absorbable forms of minerals.

    Consider taking 3 capsules with breakfast and 3 capsules with lunch.

    In order to get your homocysteine down effectively and quickly, consider taking HomocysteX Plus.

    Start with 1 capsule before breakfast and see how you feel on this amount for 1 week.

    If feeling good, increase to 1 capsule before breakfast and 1 more capsule before lunch.

    If feeling better, consider increasing to 2 capsules before breakfast and 1 capsule before lunch – total of 3 capsules. Try this for a week.

    If you feel good on those amounts, stay on them.

    If you begin feeling symptoms of headaches, muscle aches, irritability, insomnia, then stop taking HomocysteX Plus for 2 weeks. Then go back on it to the amount you found you tolerated well.

    Consider taking 1 capsule of Optimal Vitamin E to protect your cardiovascular system from the damaging effects of homocysteine.
