methyl folate & b12

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any experience taking methyl folate & methyl b-12?  These were two of the supplements recommended by the CFS specialist that I see, but I was also hoping they might have a positive impact on the POTS symptoms as well.  I am getting the MTHFR gene test as well.

I have the mutation and used to take both.  I never noticed any changes in anything.  I have also had elevated B12 blood levels for a few years but my PCP isn’t concerned.

I take cyaconobalamine 1000 mcg IM. What is the difference between that and methyl- B12?

Pistol from what I understand cyanocobalamin requires more steps for the body to process.  Some people have difficulty processing this form of B12.  For many people probably there is no difference in which form they take.  I have noticed on support forums for B12 deficiency that many take methyl or hydroxyl rather than cyano.
