    You need both B12 and methylfolate for methylation. People do get positive benefits from just B12, but you will experience better results from methylation. It might take a couple months of doing methylation before you notice improvement although some people do experience improvement at the beginning of methylation. Also, some people aren't able to tolerate a high dose of B12 and methylfolate so it would be good to start low. 200 mcg or less of methylfolate.

    Yes, I realize that but you're assuming I'm not absorbing enough methylfolate through diet which has yet to be proven in my case. I know b12 for sure though.

    I've also tried Jarrows b12 and my yeast infection went into hyperdrive. I had some at work and a female friend of mine who suffers from yeast infections off and on tried one because she was tired and hers got really bad as well. Very strange indeed!

    dbkita seemed to think that the type of folate in plants wasn't as usable as reduced forms of folate such as folinic acid and methylfolate.

    What was this in response to? You quoted TPOBPAH's post, but you mentioned my name.

    @dbkita Can I ask, do you have sources for info you like to use...If so, I'd like to read them. For example, in a post in this thread you commented that norepinephrine somehow aggravates inflammation, yet in the ordinary info sources that I go to I've seen the opposite - I'm thinking my sources for info aren't very up to date.
    Here's one of the sources mentioning norepinephrine lowering inflammation, rather than raising it (so they say)

    TROBPAH- Before you do anything see a sleep specialist. Let them do an overnight study . I did and am on a CPAP.
    machine.Stopped all my sleep issues and most of my Palpitations. Neurologist told me you cn take 9 mg if needed in melatonin. However., I would to be on the safe side have a sleep specialist do the study. I had actually stopped breathing over 30 times during the night and did not know it-until the sleep study found it. A Pulmonary sleep specialist is best. Well worth the time and investment.

    Best-

    @TPOBPAH I am in the same boat as you re the B12, I take 5000mcg a day which has done some amazing things, and even cured a myriad of problems, but other than an additional B complex tablet, I don't take methyfolate. I have always needed a lot of sleep and slept very solidly all my life until now, and I am awake at 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. It's not great but testament to the real amazing things B12 has done that I would not give it up however annoying sleep disturbance gets. Having said all this, sometimes it goes on for 2 or 3 nights and then I do get a good nights sleep, so it's not always that bad.
