    Hello. Which one of these ingredients is most likely to cause a terrible itch all over the body, and swollen hands and feet?

    Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate)
    Folate (as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate from L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid, Glucosamine Salt)
    Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin)
    Betaine Anhydrous (Trimethylglycine)
    Hypromellose capsule
    Silicon Dioxide

    Maybe all of them :) Since they all contribute to spinning the methylation cycle. It is likely that what you've experienced is a "side effect" of suddenly spinning it too fast.

    If you're sensitive to B vitamins, and many people around here are including myself, you should probably consider starting with a very low dose of the basics such as B12 and folate.

    An example would be starting with 50mcg of both and see if there's any problem. If there's no side effects you can take your time and gradually increase the dosage.

    At some point you will also be able to reintroduce the other Bs with the same technique. Low and slow :)
