    HIi,
    I've been on the simplified methylation protocol for over six months and experienced great improvement in my inflammtion symptoms but needed to take LOTS of potassium daily. Then a week ago, the inflammation returned and I stopped needing any potassium whatsoever even though I am still taking the folate and methylb12. Also I got some very sore ulcers on my tongue. Anyone with a similar experience or advice?
    I have changed my Methyb12 bottle incase the last one was degraded. Still no response. Just can't think what might be the block?
    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Hi Lisa,
    A first guess could be that more MB12 and or folate is needed.
    Another guess is that if it's not too little, maybe it's too much. ( I only write this because, my mouth sores worsened when I took too much folate,though many people's cankers improve with added folate.) Mine improved when I increased B12.
    The fact that you stopped needing potassium does seem like more may be needed. ( Personally, I would try more MB12 first, as a guess.)

    Did you change how you take it? For example vitamin C will destroy methylfolate in the gut before it can be absorbed.
    On the other hand niacin or niacinamide will soak up methyl donors like a sponge.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am taking more folate and b12 to see if that is what is needed.
    I do take vit c and high vit bs inlcuding b3 but it hasn't interfered before.
    I'm feeling a bit better but still no need for potassium.
    Thanks again
