Struggling to know where to begin with Freddd's protocol

    Hi all,

    I have read a reasonable amount of material on this forum, including:

    Active B12 Protocol Basics
    Freddd's Protocol - Getting Started
    A guide to Freddd's Protocol
    Active B12 Therapy FAQ

    I still have a bunch of questions. Forgive me if these are answered somewhere, I have looked around for a week and haven't found some info.

    Basically, I want to start the protocol, at a low dose building up to mitigate any start-up symptoms. I am looking to find exactly what I should take at which dosage initially and then figure out where to go from there. I haven't done any of the methylation tests and want to start supplementing immediately, but would consider testing if it is considered worth while.. this seems to be very controversial.

    1. What is a recommended B complex? This one? Extra biotin needed?
    2. Does Vitamin A generally need to be supplemented above a high qualtiy fish oil (2 caps daily)?
    3. What is a recommended starting dosage for:
    • Magnesium
    • Calcium
    • Lecithin
    • Selenium
    • ALA
      >100% RDI?
    4. How long should I take the "basic supplements" before starting active B12s?
    5. In what order should I begin taking Active B12s/essential cofactors?
    This post reflects what is written elsewhere but This one is different in sequence (yet references the former).
    6. Is there a consolidated post on how to adjust dosages based on symptoms, in any defined sequence?

    Thank you!

    @idn0 Be sure to read the following before getting started:

    and other documents linked in caledonia's signature.

    Cofactors and their dosages will depend on your symptoms. I always recommend this site to know what to expect from supplements, it has been helping me a lot:

    I found that I need lower dosages than most people, and the only way to find this out for yourself is by starting with only a fraction (1/8 or 1/6) of a capsule and observing your reactions.

    Thank you so much, the first link you posted was so helpful. Sadly I didn't think to look inside someone's signature for such critical information, hope it can be stickied one day.
