    BH4 supplement is in production again. It is called Pterin 4
    http://www.spectrum-supplements.com/tetrahydrobiopterin-60-capsules.html

    3 things can happen when you take it twice a day.

    1. Nothing.
    2. Makes you sick or more emotional.
    3. You feel better.

    I am the one who feels better. I don't have that incredible fatique pain. I can get off the couch. Hardly any anxiety. The problem is it is expensive and the overnight shipping on is is important. It must be cold. I notice it will loose its effect if it is warm all day.

    1) NootropicSource does not test their products:

    2) Their BH4 is improperly stored at room temperature. So it will degrade in a matter of days, even if sealed air tight. I confirmed this by ordering a sample. It was shipped without any cold pack or insulation and makes zero mention of storage requirements. It had no effect compared to real BH4 from a reputable source.

    Is this worth trying if no other treatments have worked/helped, or are the effects unlikely to be significant (especially at the price)? I'm on 5g of Vit C, which I basically feel is keeping me alive (literally),and I know it's involved in BH4 production .. it's basically the only thing I can tolerate, but my qualify of life is awful.

    I have 2 copies of GCH1 and my report said people who supplement L Tyrosine feel better.

    Hiya

    I have 56 capsules of Ecological Formulas Pteridin (BH4) for sale for half the price I paid for them online only last week. I've listed them on ebay (UK) I wasn't able to tolerate them unfortunately (Severe MCAS). Search for them on there if you are interested. I have 100% positive feedback on ebay (1283 happy customers) and I'm happy to ship them out on ice. They were shipped to me on ice and have been kept in the fridge since then. Would be a shame for them to go to waste.

    I do. You must have overnight shipping to receive it cold. I always order from them.

    Damn i remember searching for BH4 supplement years ago when i started to being depressed because it was a logical point of failure, didn't even know it existed. It looks like godsend, but damn price and storage seems trickey.
