I have the MTHFR gene. Is it safe to take the Methyl CpG supplement? Which vitamins should I avoid? It has 2,000mcg of folate, in the M.CpG Is it safe

Go ahead: This gene testing is being promoted by a lab to liability-wary physicians.

I heard that folic acid is useful to be taken before pregnancy is that true? And also vitamins e and c ?!

I heard that folic acid is useful to be taken before pregnancy is that true? And also vitamins e and c ?!

Yes and maybe: Adequate Folic Acid helps to prevent neural tube defects, a type of birth defect. Taking any multivitamin will generally give you enough, but check the label on your prenatal vitamins to make sure. Vitamin c is water soluble, and you cannot take too much in any practical sense, because any excess you take will be cleared in your urine.

While taking a prenatal vitamin is folate (in whole food vitamins) and folic acid (synthetic vitamins) the same? Or is one better than the other?

The same!: Folate is another name for folic acid, and for prevention of birth defects, or for any other purpose, there is absolutely no difference in effectiveness between Folic Acid that has been made in the lab and Folic Acid from a natural product. You should definitely take a prenatal vitamin that contains one or the other, but the manufacturing process is up to you! ...Read more
