Treatment of MTHFR Detoxification Defect.

If a person has an MTHFR DNA mutation or if they are extremely sensitive to supplements and prescriptions consider treating for MTHFR defect using 5-MTHF and methylcobalamin combination. Once on a full dose, of this add 5-MTHF.

  • 5-MTHF 400 mcg and Methylcobalamin 400 mcg 1-3 pills 1 time a day. Start at 1 pill and increase every 7 days as tolerated up to 3 pills. Go slowly because opening up blocked detoxification with this supplement could cause more fatigue, body pain, and cognitive dysfunction.
  • 5-MTHF 1 mg or 5-MTHF 5 mg 1 pill daily. Add the 1 mg dose after you are stable on the 5 MTHF/Methylcobalamin combination above. Only add the 5mg dose if advised by your physician.
