    Hello Dear People,

    I wanted to ask you, if MB12 can cause folate deficiency in the brain?

    Thank you!

    @Elizar I don't know the answer. but you might look through the guide to Freddd's Protocol linked in my signature. You'll find several symptoms lists there, if not in the body of the text, then linked at the end, under resources. sorry I don't have a direct answer. What makes you ask that specific question?

    Yes, it's possible. Always take them together.

    What is the right proportion between MB12 and MTHF? If I take 1000mg MB12, how much MTHF I have to take?

    I think it's individual, but I would take at least half of that, so 500mcg. I try to take them in a 1:1 ratio personally.

    I'm sure you mean mcg, not mg.

    There is no set ratio. Take enough folate to avoid folate deficiency symptoms. You might try searching this forum for paradoxical folate deficiency.

    A lot of docs suggest 1:3 to 1:5 for a folate to B12 ratio. In other words, more B12 than folate.
