Methyl Head, so if I have low moly as well as low in copper than would Molybenum be an issue? Since Moly will further reduce copper levels? Can that be a reason I get headaches when I take Moly? Can I coorect the CBS pathway without taking Moly? Even if my Moly is low? Would fixing the leaky gut and correcting the pathway through Ornithine and Yucca etc be enough to correct the CBS?

Well I will know for sure about my copper levels once i get my blood tests back. I have been reading about copper a lot and hanging out in the Magnesium Advocacy Group. Apparantly, high copper can really be low copper. It shows high cuz it's not metabolizing in my body. It's free unbound so it appears high. When I had the Biofeedback she said I had zero copper. But it is suggested to get plasma magnesium/copper/ zinc and serra something test to know for sure. But since I am deficient in everything it wouldn't make sense that my copper would really be high. Some people in the group have CBS mutation and they just take Moly for a short period of time and than resume the rest of the protocol. I am really jiving with the protocol, listening to videos. it makes sense to me. Still don't get why I get headaches from Moly. My guess is that is't depleting my copper. It is not recommended to take copper. Only fast oxidizers . The Barley Grass I'm taking an abundance of has a lot of zinc and copper so I think that will help a lot and fixing my gut. So how much Moly should I take at the least? I'm taking the ionic mineral itself. Is that ok? I can't take supplements with additives in it.

anyone? please!

my guess is I need folate and choline, but would love some advice
Just like me, you've got CBS 699T (hetero) and BHMT (hetero; all of them). This effectively constitutes a strong up-regulation of CBS. You've also got NOS3 mutations (homozygous; mine is hetero). This is not a good combination. You have a few COMT, the particularly problematic COMT V158M is good. You are COMT (-/-) and VDR Taq (-/-) and this combination is good. So you should be able to tolerate methyl groups (you actually may need it depending on VDR Taq status).

To stimulate BHMT, yes, you would need choline.

@dbose - This is perfect for you! I'm always wary about giving dosages without knowing what your deficiencies and other health needs are but the supplements themselves are perfect. I like the low dose use of Niacin, back off of it even more if you feel like you're getting microphagy symptoms. Which form of Niacin is it? Also, any word on the magnesium threonate? I've become curious about it recently.

Thanks @Methyl Head

Trying this version from LifeEx, along with Curcumin LongVida as curcumin being methyl donor can create problems. But overall I'm feeling calm and relaxed. MgLT is something that is based upon thorough research. Next going to try PharmaGABA (along with Mg / B6 / Zn to stimulate GABA formation). Do you know any good GABA that gets absorbed well ?
