  • MTHFR and Neurotransmitters – Amy’s Neurotransmitter Theory
    These past few weeks we’ve been talking about the link between MTHFR and the production of different neurotransmitters via the BH4 pathway. This includes serotonin and melatonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine and epinephrine. The research seems to mostly agree that people with mental health issues like depression or anxiety, often have imbalanced neurotransmitters. Somehow, however, that … Continue reading MTHFR and Neurotransmitters – Amy’s Neurotransmitter Theory
  • MTHFR and Norepinephrine
    MTHFR can be with mental health issues including depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive traits, and global issues like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Culturally, we tend to jump to the idea that all mental health issues are neurotransmitter problems and that the only way to solve them is by boosting your neurochemistry. We’ll explore this idea in a … Continue reading MTHFR and Norepinephrine

  • MTHFR and Decision Fatigue
    We’ve had a number of heavy topics lately and I wanted to lighten it all up a bit this week by talking about something that is sorely needed for many MTHFR folks. That is ease. Ease, ironically, is something we don’t tend to do easily, especially when it comes to self-care. The joy and devastation … Continue reading MTHFR and Decision Fatigue
  • The Best B12 For MTHFR
    This question seems to come up frequently in the MTHFR community, Genetic Rockstars.  And of course, B12 levels have a lot to do with how you feel and how well you’re methylating on a daily basis, so it’s a really relevant conversation. Vitamin B12 is a cofactor in the recycling of homocysteine to methionine and … Continue reading The Best B12 For MTHFR

  1. Hi Dr.Amy!

    I’m so grateful I came across your podcast. I’ve only listened to about 8 so far… you’re right, it’s a lot of information in a little bit! I have so many questions but for know I will just ask two…
    1) Typically how long before you may notice results from taking b vitamins? (Like the B minus from Seeking Health)
    2) Is it safe to take daily SAMe or should you pulse it?
    Looking forward to hearing back!

    1. Hi Holly,
      I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the podcast – that is great news!
      In terms of “results” – it depends on what you’re looking for. Usually, people notice mood or energy level changes first, and those are very dose-dependent. I try to encourage people to give a dose at least 2 weeks (and more if you’re very sensitive) to see how your body responds before you think of increasing or changing. If you’ve been taking the B minus with no negative effects for 2 weeks and you aren’t seeing too much of a change, you could think about adding in a separate 5-LMTHF at a very low dose and seeing how you respond (or if you know you don’t tolerate 5-LMTHF, then maybe an additional folinic acid or a workaround like the SAMe.)

      SAMe is safe to take daily and works best on an empty stomach (30 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after).
      I hope this is helpful and I hope you’ll consider joining the Genetic Rockstars community – click the link to find out more.
