    I've been following Freddd's protocol with quite some success. Generally I feel much better and am pretty satisfied with my health. There is still lots to improve, but I feel great compared to before. I am thinking of going travelling for some time, and actually want to reduce my supplement intake to a bare minimum. Now when I tried to reduce my supplement intake slowly, I ended up with a paradoxical folate deficiency and had to go back to my 'normal' dose of 15mg methylfolate a day to avoid a sudden hard shut down.

    Can anyone here share their experience on how to reduce high dose methylfolate without ending up with deficiency symptoms? I want to avoid having to take a backpack of supplements with me while travelling.

    Vit B2 helps recycle methylfolate and supplementing with it may help reduce methylfolate dosage, but then you would need to carry a B2 supplement instead.

    Alternatively, you could carry high dose forms of methylfolate such as the 5 mg ones from Life Extension and Now if you're not already doing so.
