    I apologize if this question has been asked before, but I haven't been able to find what I am looking for via the search function.

    I am following a methylation protocol and my doc wants me to also take oral reduced glutathione (GSH) which I understand can cause methyl-trapping. I have already take some glutathione last years with no ill effects, but now I should take a larger dose. (1-2g / day)

    Can you please direct me to discussions and/or articles that talk about this issue more in detail? I'd like to send these resources to my doc and discuss the issue with him. I am not sure he knows anything about it.

    Also, if you have had any direct experience with the issue let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks in advance.
    Peter

    I have read the article and started watching the videos which are very interesting. However I don't seem to be able to find where he is arguing about Glutathione causing methyl-trapping as I have seen mentioned often times in this forum.

    I guess Freddd is among those who recommend avoiding extra glutathione while taking methylation supplements.

    I didn't have time to peruse all the info I linked to but I do remember reading Rich VanK saying that supplementing with Glutathione was in his opinion not helpful because the problem was (upstream/downstream?/whatever).
    I thought I'd covered it with the links I sent.

    Maybe someone else knows where to find this.
