Thank you Dr. Lynch, This discussion is very helpful about when to back off, and how to prepare the body to respond the best before adding methylfolate. My son could not tolerate much methylfolate to begin with, so we backed off, added some of your optimal turmeric and optimal start for about 3 weeks, and then proceeded to start with the methylfolate and add slowly from there. He is on about to 3mgs currently. We would love to able to recommend to him a multivitamin, but I am concerned about giving him your multi because it combines niacin and methylfolate. Doesn’t that pose a problem together? Won’t the niacin cancel out the methylfolate in the vitamin as well as the excess methylfolate he already takes? What are your thoughts about this, and can you recommend what to do? Obviously, our son is getting niacin in his diet already, as well, but he really needs a multi. Thanks
I started taking one Doctor’s Best Curcumin C³ Complex with BioPerine (1000 mg tablet) daily about two months ago. I’m a 65-year-old man and was told I would need surgery on my right knee and right wrist because of recurring pain. Since taking the curcumin the pain in both areas has completely disappeared and surgery is no longer needed. I feel healthier than I’ve felt in years and plan to continue taking curcumin. I’m also happy to report that I’ve had no noticeable side effects from the curcumin. I’ll be going for my yearly physical in November and am eagerly awaiting my cholesterol results to see if it has gone down.
