Methyl-Life™ Product Help Guide
Our recommendation for you is below
Your suggested daily methylfolate target might be around 1-15 mg of L-Methylfolate (we base this on Dr. Rawlins’ general recommendations & the wide range of symptoms collected here – as well as the irregularity of tolerance by persons in this category of symptoms and sensitivity) – 7.5-15 mg has been shown in clinical studies to increase serotonin levels (specifically for depression). If you have no MTHFR mutations and don’t tolerate higher doses, 1 mg may suffice.
If you know you have an MTHFR mutation(s) and complicated symptoms, then more might be very helpful for you. If you’re in need of serotonin level boosting for mood or IBS, then 5-15 mg might be a better target, again as/if you tolerate it. Some folks respond quickly – within weeks and others may take a full 4 months before they respond favorably to the therapeutic methylfolate dosing.
Download and follow our FREE step-by-step Sensitive Methylation Protocol which lists specific products and dosages. Start very low with your initial dose and increase VERY SLOWLY (only if you tolerate it) until you get to your mg goal or the amount you best tolerate. Not everyone can tolerate these higher level therapeutic doses of methylfolate. You may only be able to take 1/2 of the suggested dosage level, but that may be just right for you personally. Listen to your body as you adjust dosing!
