I am using B12 Adeno - do I need Hydroxy B12 or Methyl B12 as well?

    OK, so according to my SNPs, I have to take Adeno B12 which I am doing.
    Now I think Is hould add another B12 to it.
    I am trying to make up my mind if I need Hydroxy B12 or Methyl B12, - which one is best?

    I like methyl. I've gotten A LOT of benefit from it. But depending on snps some people seem to do better with hydroxy. I don't know which snps indicate hydroxy instead of methyl, though. Sorry about that. A little trial of methyl might be able to steer you in the right direction if no one pipes up with that info.

    If you don't mind saying, which snps indicate adeno?

    I don't know how long you have been on the Adeno B12 but I would stay with that for awhile to see how you do on it before adding in another form. That way you will know which might be working best for you.

    thanks, all. Also I was wondering about Lithium, as B12 supposedly depletes it.

    I started lithium before B12/folate. It was excellent for my mood. Now, I'm using it approx. every other day. I've read a number of references to it helping B12 transport.

    As I was searching for something re adenoB12, I came across this interesting comment from a pr thread:

    Thanks for re-posting this nugget, ahmo. :thumbsup: I actually remember reading it a long time ago but it's a keeper and I'd forgotten it.

    I've had to bump up both folate and mB12 recently and induced deficiency from taking glutathione precursors a while back may be why. I also suspect my maintenance dose of folate may have just been too low. But combined with taking NAC + glutamine + glycine for glutathione production, definitely it was too low. I started not feeling very good while doing this, and things have been a bit different since. Not bad, but a little more "vulnerable", if you will. This quote probably explains why. I'm in the process of getting all my levels back up again, trying to prevent what felt like an impending crash. So far so good. Odd runny nose and minor flu-y type symptoms that indicate folate deficiency for me, but I'm still up and going, still able to exercise, etc. And symptoms go away when I dose. We'll see how it goes.

    This, too. :thumbsup:

    Both these quotes explain some things for me. Hafta keep them in mind. :)
