Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (CH3 – one carbon attached to three hydrogens) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is 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 5-MTHF (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. Methyl-Guard Plus is more concentrated, so your patients will appreciate the recommended daily amount of three capsules, which will improve compliance. Our original Methyl-Guard is still available.
Three Capsules Contain:
Riboflavin (as Riboflavin 5′-Phosphate Sodium) 90 mg
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5′-Phosphate) 45 mg

Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 3 mg
Betaine Anhydrous (Trimethylglycine) 1,800 mg
Take 1-3 capsules daily or as recommended by a health-care practioner.
