Let me clarify: Best generic which gets close to MetanX, is methylated folate, B-6, B-12 (available online). Alpha lipoic acid might help. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is less than worthless. Many "supplements" are mislabeled, have impurities, and may not even contain promoted item.
Buyer beware. "Natural" is most often a pathway to expense, leading to disappointment and frustration.
