Methylfolate for DepressionHyla Cass, MD
Here is a mainstream study advocating the use of a special form of the B vitamin, folic acid. How does it work? To make neurotransmitters, we need methyl groups. If we don’t make methyl groups due to a genetic variation (could be as high as 30% of the population), we have trouble making neurotransmitters, and can become depressed. The solution? take methylfolate! It’s included in my Brain Recovery AM/PM packets and in Better Balance 2-a-Day multivitamins. Take that along with the requisite amino acids (also contained in Brain Recovery packets) and then you likely won’t even need an antidepressant.
