    My NP wants me to start taking Thorne 5-MTHF. She said 1/16 of a 1 mg capsule.

    To make sure I get consistent dosing, I was thinking of putting a capsule in water, not sure how many ML's since my math skills are gone, then each day use a syringe and draw up the amount I need.

    So the first question is will the Methylfolate stay in the water for the amount of time it takes me to use it up?

    Then, if so, can someone help me with the math, ie: if I use 50 ml water (or how ever much I need, how much do I draw up to make the 1/16 of 1 mg?

    If anyone has other suggestions I'm open.

    Thanks

    @adreno. Thanks. I can only do the math if it's 100 mgs in 100 ml water.

    Do you think the methylfolate will survive? I'll keep it capped in the fridge. It will also be easier for me to adjust the dosage if I need to that way.

    Well, 16 days is a long time. I have no idea how long it will keep.

    That's what I'm trying to find out. I can't think of another way to get that low dose without buying a scale and messing around with that which I just can't do in the morning.

    @adreno, based on RichVanks protocol he suggests we can use Solgar Metafolin. I can get that in a 400 mcg. Is there a difference between Metafolin and Methyletrahydrofolate? That might be an easier way to go to start.

    Both are 5-MTHF.

    I was thinking if I get the pills I can split them more easily. Then I can start really slow. The last time I tried this I felt really unwell so I had to stop. This might make it easier.
