    i buy from GNC not because i really like their product actually but because its more reachable since the store is nearby.

    yes i know iherb.com, i shop there too. but in here the DHL sometimes/usually stealth charges for handling fee, bank, storage, licence, etc which usually cost the same as the product i buy. so it could turn out as expensive as GNC.
    im interested in hydroxycobalamin too but i can only find 1 product @iherb :(
    well i took green veges everyday add some veges on almost every meal.
    i dont think i should take folate yet. will consider it later because the candida, bacteria issue. and it could also add fuel to the methylation process. so its better to wait i think.

    sregan yes thats the one. i wanted to try NAD to but the NOW FOODS is out of and i dont know if it will be restocked or not. so i have to wait untill that to buy my other supplements too.
    did the AOR gave you jittery/ palpitatioin tachycardia? cause i read methylation caused that. thats why i thought of trying hydrox12 since it says its more tolerable.

    As someone mentioned above, getting a 23and me test would show which type of B12 you tolerate best. Mine showed hydroxy - which I kinda knew already, but good to see it in print.

    @kisekishiawase I did not tolerate it too well. I seemed to be getting the B12 from it but it was causing me to feel worse also. Methyl B12 works without any side effects. For the Genetics I thought you had to look at COMT. I thought I would be indicated for HB12 but do much better on MB12

    A hyper-paranoid rant, mostly saying results are made up (easily disproven by the many related people who have gotten their results, and it's unlikely there'd be any "null" results if they were making things up). And then there's something about other companies making guesses about famous people who you might be related to (I haven't seen 23andMe do this, though they will report famous people from the same haplogroup).

    The claims about having results done "somewhere else" with "totally different results" are also extremely vague. There are also other people who have had results from two different sites (one responding to the rant below) who haven't mentioned any disparate results.
    This one seems rather petty: a combination of ignorance, nitpicking, and feigning extreme stupidity for dramatic effect.
    1) I'm not American so the disclaimer about genetic info not being used by health insurance companies doesn't apply to me. (She's australian, and entitled to health care there.)
    2) That protection doesn't apply to Americans applying for life insurance. (So? Planning to get a life insurance policy in the US soon? Do ANY companies actually ask for genetic data?)
    3) I freaked out because I have a 1.21x greater chance of a heart attack than the general population. (Maybe she needs to learn a bit more about odds ratios and seek treatment for hysterical reactions?)
    4) The research showing risk involved Europeans, hence is irrelevant to me. (Not really. Again, she needs to learn a little more rather than making pseudo-stupid assumptions.)
    5) I can't see my paternal ancestry. (Yup. You need a Y chromosome for that.)
    6) I don't understaaaaand what it's saying about my maternal ancestry. (Seriously. How hard is to read a chart with labels

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see anything about 23andMe here. Just that some testing services might make misleading claims? I'd like to see specific examples relevant to 23andMe.
    The only mention here of 23andMe is that they were accused of "hedging their bets" with regards to someone's ancestry (polish or irish or arabian). Actually Arabian ancestry is extremely similar to European, and Polish and Irish are both northern European - maybe the objections are because these groups tend to look a bit different, hence are presumed to be completely unrelated?

    I was just meaning I didn't do well on methyl b12 - was okay on hydroxy - and then I had my 23and me results back which confirmed why - just saying - if its of no interest just ignore it.....
