Giving folinic a shot today to see how it compares. Anyone ever favor it?
Yup, i do better on folinic acid. Methylfolate just ramps up my inflammation even in small doses.
Strangely i do best on just folic acid.
After my first day on folinic, I can say I'm a huge fan too. No "crash" that I get from methylfolate's short half life, and way more energy. More of the good and less of the bad. Plus I always feel like crap taking less than 4-5mg of methylfolate, whereas I felt great (albeit a bit too much) on 3.2mg folinic.
Continuing to take TMG as well for methyl groups.
Yes. Both folate and folic acid killed me. Well, maybe not quite, but it felt like it at times. LOL.
Folinic acid seems to be the only form I can tolerate. It's a bit frustrating, because some folks insist folinic acid is "bad," and folate is the ONLY right option.
But...the folinic acid seems to do a lot of good for me, so...?
I tolerate methylfolate but folinic seems much smoother.
Having the "MAOA warrior gene" though makes it difficult to tolerate, and its longer duration seems to take a little more planning than methylfolate did.
