Dr. Amy Yasko informed me that hydrox-adeno is best suited for someone with my variants). Our SNPs are very similar. Methyl Folate makes me very sad and restless, I can't do it. I get folate from foods and am currently supplementing with choline (sunflower lecithin) to help with methylation (thanks, Susan, for the tip!). Make sure you are getting enough B2 and magnesium, as well. My B2 and magnesium were very low last I checked (February). Both are needed for methylation.
I'm getting my homocysteine checked today. it was 10.8 in November 2017, then 9.9 in February 2018, so I am very interested to see if my current supplement routine has lowered it.
