    Which multivitamin/ mineral supplement are people using now? I was using Yasko's Neurological Health Formula from Holistic Heal, but that seems to be discontinued. I used Thorne Basic Nutrients V last year, but that seems to be out of stock everywhere.

    I am so sensitive to everything it takes me ages to settle down after changes in my supplements, so I am quite nervous about making mistakes in my present muddle-headed state of mind.

    Both these were recommended by Rich for people with methylation block - (gosh I really miss Rich). What are people using now - and why did you chose the brand you prefer?

    I am using the thorne stress b complex, seems to work very well.. The folate in it is metafolin form, has some P5P and the bio available form of b2, err well like 25mg of b6 and b2, and 3mg of their bio active forms.. alongside the normal complex stuff.

    Thanks @Martial. Yours is specifically B vitamins. I am looking for a supplement with a full range of minerals and vitamins.

    Yes, Metafolin is calcium bound 5-MTHF. But actually I believe Thorne uses quatrefolic, another form of 5-MTHF (glucosamine bound). Some Thorne products also has folinic acid.

    Yes @adreno, I used Thorne Basic Nutrients V last year (recommended by Rich) but it seems to be out of stock at the moment. Can you recommend one of the others in the Thorne Research range to go with methylation block?

    I'm using the new Holistic Health All in One multi (replaced the old Neurological Health formula). Caution - once you add some active sublingual B12, it's extremely powerful. I'm only taking 1/64 of one pill, twice a week (a full dose being 6 pills per day), as it's causing metal detox (good, but I need to go very slow).

    My other choice is the Thorne Basic Nutrients IV or V.

    Once I can get my levels increased enough, my plan is to take a smaller amount of both, instead of the full dose of one or the other, as each one has certain strengths and weaknesses.

    If Thorne V is out, there are other Thorne's - I think III is equivalent to V, except it's citrate based. Neither III or V have iron and copper. IV has iron and copper.

    Right, Caledonia already described your options. Depending on your iron levels you can decide which one is best. If you are still menstruating a little iron might not be bad. Otherwise I would probably go without.

    I have taken the Pure Encapsulations "Nutrient 950" which contains L-5-MTHF.

    @acer2000 How did you do with that multi. I am also looking for a multi. Did not do very well with Thorne Basic Nutrients V

    Thorne III and IV seem to be in stock; Pure encapsulations looks a bit expensive. Thanks for the recommendations and helpful information.

    The Pure stuff is fine. I notice a slight difference if I don't take it. It's not earth shattering.
