Methyl-Life™ Product Help Guide
Our recommendation for you is below
Your suggested daily methylfolate target might be around 1-4 mg of L-Methylfolate (we base this on the NeevoDHA prescription prenatal and Dr. Rawlins’ pregnancy recommendations for those with MTHFR) – NeevoDHA contains 1 mg of L-Methylfolate, just like Methyl-Life's™ chocolate raspberry chewable Methylated Multivitamin.
If you have no MTHFR mutations, 1 mg should suffice, if you know you have an MTHFR mutation(s), then 2-4 mg might be more helpful for you.
Download and follow our FREE step-by-step Fertility/Pregnancy Methylation Protocol which lists specific products and dosages.
Start where you feel comfortable with your initial dose and increase slowly (as/if you tolerate it) until you get to the mg goal you choose (or best tolerate).
CAVEAT: It’s very important that you do not take methylfolate without also taking an active form of B12 with it, otherwise you could mask a B12 deficiency issue and incur other complications. Note that Methyl-Life's™ B-Methylated II formula has 3 mg of L-Methylfolate and 3.75 mg of active B12 (as methylcobalamin) which is an ideal product for pregnant mothers needing more of these bioavailable nutrients. NOTE: not everyone tolerates this amount of methylfolate or the form of active B12 in this product, so pay attention to your body and consider the Actives for Sensitives bundle as an alternative if you are unsure.
A Note on Miscarriages: One customer who had 5 successive miscarriages finally switched from folic acid to Methyl-Life's™ B-Methylated II product and was able to bring her baby girl to full term. She fully believes it’s because she stopped the high dose folic acid (which she could not convert in her body due to the MTHFR) and chose Methyl-Life's™ professional quality methylated folate instead.
