methylated B vitamins #glutathione

25: health/glutathione/methylated B vitamins:
. I was hearing the best form of vit'B for glutathione
(the magic associated with selenium)
is the pro-methylation forms .
. Now Foods thought that the pro-methyl form of b6
needed to be enteric,
so being sublingual might be very important
(either way avoids the stomach acid).
. anyway, here's more about methylation
if you were looking to variety for security .

. I am going to try using Methyl-Guard Plus
sublingually (see below).
I may also try enteric B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate) .

Thorne Research, Methyl-Guard Plus:
Riboflavin (as Riboflavin 5'-Phosphate Sodium) 90 mg 5,295%
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate) 45 mg 2,250%
Folate (as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) 3 mg 750%
(from L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid, Glucosamine Salt)
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 3 mg 50,000%
Betaine Anhydrous (Trimethylglycine)
.
Methylation – the addition of a methyl group
(CH4 – one carbon attached to three hydrogens)
to another molecule
– is an essential and vital biochemical process
involved in a large number of biochemical pathways
involving neurotransmitters, detoxification,
cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health,
bone health, and redox balance.
A number of specific nutrients are necessary
for methylation to occur normally.
Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of
5MTHF (the active form of folate),
pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active B6),
and methylcobalamin (active B12),
than our original Methyl-Guard.
We have also added riboflavin 5'-phosphate
(the active form of vitamin B2)
for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism
and methylation.
These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients
the body uses to push forward the process of methylation.
