    Hi all,

    I saw my alternative MD this past week. She was trained as a neurotoxicologist so I figured she would be a good bet to work with on the methylation protocol and sure enough, she seemed to know a lot about it, although she is not familiar with Rich's specific protocol. She thought I could just take Pure Encapsulations Nutrient 950 without copper, iron and iodine, because "it has the good B12 and Folate." I compared the ingredients to the multi from holistic heal and they are similar, although Pure Encapsulations has higher amounts of everything, but since the per day serving is 6 capsules I could take a partial dose. Could this replace the holistic heal multi in Rich's protocol?

    Anyone have any experience with these supplements? Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Here is the ingredient list:

    Hi Kathy,

    Somewhere I read that the Yasko multi is actually made by Pure Encapsulations--but I don't know if this is true or just a rumor. But it is definitely a good brand. You might address this question to Rich and he could give you a better opinion than most of us.

    Best,
    Sushi

    Thanks Alice and Sushi! I will try to contact Rich directly. I checked the bottle I bought from my doc (unopened, if I decide not to use it I can return it) and it contains Metafolin not folic acid. I don't know what you would get if ordering directly from the company.

    I use a lot of this brand's products, and have found them to be great. They're also highly recommended by the naturopaths I've worked with. Very high quality standards compared to most brands.

    I know that having multiple pills is a down side for some people, but I really like it. Made it much easier to slowly ramp up my dose of Metafolin a little at a time, and to spread out my dose of B vitamins throughout the day.

    And yes, the new formulation definitely has methylfolate instead of folic acid. Most of the professional brands seem to have made that change.

    Hope it works out great!
