Hmmm... do you know if you tolerate folinic acid well?
I've had two doctors recommend Thorne Methyl Guard plus - but it doesn't come in high enough doses for me... so I'm back to taking the basic b vitamins separately, right now. (plus it's not as complete).
I like it! No folic acid or cyanob12 and I like the moderate doses, then if I want to add more of one or the other separately, I can. And no glycerin or gelatin, great.
Here's a couple more
this one is called Pathways B Complex 50
I think we should get a list of all the B complexes that have various amounts of the ingredients we are all looking for and have a sticky.....searching the forum is extremely time consuming and this is a basic need and question that gets asked often.
This is my current favorite:
Heres a couple of Thorne formulas. Not the Basic or the #6 which have been talked about here quite a bit so everyones probably familiar with them.
Thought i would go ahead and post the Thorne Basic and #6 so we have as many as we can all together for the next person trying to search the forum will have a bit easier time of it.
The Basic looks pretty good.
Not a complete B complex but it caught my eye as its for high homocysteine...which I have despite having CBS mutation
While we are at it... does anyone know of a good chewable. I'm wanting to get my 9 yr old started on it; but he can't swallow pills yet.
This is a good chewable. It looks like it's also on sale It has low doses including coenzymated B1, B2, B6, and it has folinic acid instead of folic acid. It doesn't taste great, but you can crush it up and mix it with food or liquid. I take it sublingually before bed. (amounts listed for two tablets)
Of course you could just empty out part of a capsule and mix it with food or liquid. B vitamins don't taste good so it would be best to get coenzymated b vitamins so you don't have to take as high a dose.
I've also been hunting for b complexes the last few months. I've been taking the pathways b 50 you posted. It's on sale now until July 17th. I think it's probably the best value of almost any b complex I've seen (although there is a shipping fee...). This is the front label for anyone interested in ordering that:
Now that I'm taking methylfolate I think what I might do is empty out part of the pathways b complex into an empty capsule along with part of the Swanson's activated B complex which is also one of the best values. Quatrefolic isn't as potent as Metafolin, but it's still a very good value.
It seems there is a study where taking TMG lowered homocysteine
But how do you know it isn't just methylation that's reducing homocysteine? In which case TMG is optional. Either way, TMG is really cheap. Better just to buy a b complex and then add TMG if necessary.
I have a major problem tolerating B-complexes and have tried more than a few - anyone recommend a gentle one for sensitive folk?
I have to take my bs seperately to avoid b2 and get the dosage i need. X
I have the CBS mutation and am doing well with Yasko's B Complex which is low in B6. I can take a whole pill, vs. the Thorne B Complex #6, I could only take 1/8 of a pill due to the high B6 content. So I'm getting a lot more of the B2 I desperately need (as shown by Nutreval).
Note: it does have some "folic acid" in it.
This seems like a good B complex for people with the SHMT. Research shows this can hoard key nutrients from the MTHFR and MTRR.
I have a complete CBS ++ too and I do well on The Ultimate B but I'm not overly sensitive to b vitamins.
