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

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. The majority of folks tested are told they have an abnormal gene and that they should take these folks' supplements. Most of us pathologists think it's subscientific at best, though there's some interesting stuff. Health doesn't come out of a pill bottle and I hope you're eating sensibly and exercising. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are the effects of using a icy gel moisturiser containing methyl paraben for the face?

Do all fortified foods contain cyanocobalamin or do some contain methyl or hydroxo, and which natural sources of b12, are the most bioavailable?

Do all fortified foods contain cyanocobalamin or do some contain methyl or hydroxo, and which natural sources of b12, are the most bioavailable?

Most cyanocobalamin: No way of knowing if "all" have the cyano form but I believe virtually all have that form as it is the least expensive and most widely available. But methylcobalamin is the optimal form for supplementation- see http://tinyurl. Com/h7scsna
Some foods contain higher concentrations of B12 but the form found in food is hydoxycobalamin so all equally bioavailable. See http://tinyurl. Com/j7npwg3 ...Read more

B12 deficiency and MTHFRDNA mutation. Should I be taking methyl b12.? I take cynacobilamin now

B12 deficiency and MTHFRDNA mutation. Should I be taking methyl b12.? I take cynacobilamin now

Little science here: MTHFR testing is pushed by a single lab and most of us pathologists aren't impressed. A majority of people are told they have a mutation and get advised to take special vitamins. I'd take an ordinary preparation. Maybe time will prove these folks right but I would be surprised. ...Read more

I overused a 2 0z tube of bengay with methyl salicilate. Is this a toxic amount if it contains 30 percent of this chemical?

Doubtful: You are using the word toxic as if you are going to have automatic health concerns. Whereas doctors are worried only if you have symptoms or issues of concern. One tube of BenGay is not likely to cause you trouble. But, as asked before, What is your concern? Why do you keep asking us this question without something that is causing you concern? ...Read more

The reason why I asked, I did break out with a rash, and I heard the chemical methyl Salicilate can be harmful even when absorbed in skin.

I am taking a l-methyl-b6-b12 daily. I recently had blood work done and my B12 level was 1600. Is this serious. Should I consult a hemotoligist?

Methyl-parabens are considered an antioxidant preservative (as in amide anesthetics), if they are antioxidants, why are parabens bad for you?

They're not.: They naturally occurring in fruit (prominent in blueberries), and while they are readily absorbable through the GI tract and the skin, they are promptly and completely excreted in the urine, leaving essentially no possibility of toxicity. Interestingly, they are slowing or toxic to the common fruit fly - not a bad side effect. ...Read more

What is the significance of high 3-methyl-histidine in my blood first time 2.3. Second time 5.3 says normal is 0-0...I have burning muscles....

What is the significance of high 3-methyl-histidine in my blood first time 2.3. Second time 5.3 says normal is 0-0...I have burning muscles....

Did you exercise: If elevated, the individual is breaking down muscle. When I see this, I ask my patient if he exercised heavily the day before having their blood drawn. Muscle breakdown is a natural result of exercise. If the individual did not exercise, and 3-methylhistidine is elevated, he is breaking down muscle. He may be protein deficient, in which case the individual begins to break down. ...Read more

What is the difference between folgard and l-methylfolate? I heard that l-methyl can help with mthfr/ preg. Loss which I have is this true?

What is the difference between folgard and l-methylfolate? I heard that l-methyl can help with mthfr/ preg. Loss which I have is this true?

Folgard: Folgard is a multimineral tablet containing Folic Acid & vitamin b6. L-methylfolate is the active form of folate; Folic Acid must be changed into this form in your body. If you have one of the genetic polymorphisms of folate metabolism (it can be tested for), then the l-methylfolate will be the better option for you because your body isn't making the step from Folic Acid to active folate. ...Read more
