    What is the opposite of methyl donors? Is it methyl receivers? methyl stealers? methyl takers?
    Also, what supplements work as methyl receivers? Only the ones I know are niacin and NADH (active B3).
    I've attached a list of methyl donors, which might be beneficial for finding methyl receivers.

    -Theanine (in black, green, and white tea)
    -Methyl B12
    -Folapro, Metafolin, Deplin, 5-MTHF
    -Folic acid
    -Methionine amino acid
    -Vitamin B complex

    Some call it a methyl-mop :)
    It seems that vitamin B1 and B2 could also work as methyl-mops, or at least increase the need for methyl donors.

    B3 seems the best methyl-mop. Otherwise there are lots of drugs that can interfere with methylation via different pathways.

    I think Dr. Ben Lynch has a list of those drugs on his website.
