Now, here’s a product I’m excited to tell you about!

As I said before, I’ve had blood work done a couple times this year. My first draw revealed a deficiency in vitamin B12. After having cut animal products from my diet the year before, this was a concern I already had. In addition to B12, folate showed low as well.

What a pleasant surprise it was to find both of these combined in one product, along with choline and B6 in Premier Research Lab’s Phyto Methylate.

Check out these ingredients:

Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) – 25 mg

Folate (as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) – 680 mg

Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) – 1,000 mg

Choline (as Choline Bitartrate from grape fermentation) 110 mg

What makes Phyto Methylate a good choice?

One of my favorite aspects of this product is the vitamins are methylated! I am not an expert on methylation, but here’s the basics of what you need to know about it.

When you take B vitamins that are not methylated, your body has to do the work to make the vitamins usable. This requires a fair bit of good health and proper genetic make up. 

You may have heard of the MTHFR gene? Many people have a mutation in this gene that prevents them from being able to convert folic acid into a usable form of folate. This means you could be taking all sorts of folic acid and not only not getting the benefits, but clogging up your folate receptors with all this synthetic stuff!

To get the most easily assimilated nutrition, aim for methylated vitamins! And this is where PRL excels. This product is very bioavailable, so rest assured you’re not wasting your time or money on something your body can’t even use. 

Does it work?

I started taking Phyto Methylate shortly after learning the results of my first blood draw. A few months later I got bloodwork done again and great news! B12 and folate had both definitely improved.

Perhaps more exciting was the increase I noticed in cervical mucus. If you read my book review of The Fifth Vital Sign, you may remember how much I love the menstrual cycle. You also may remember the role cervical mucus plays in fertility. A woman’s body should produce a good amount of fertile mucus for a few days each cycle leading up to ovulation. If this isn’t happening, it’s a sign to you that something is amiss in your health. And for those who are trying to conceive, it’s something you really want to get figured out because you can’t get pregnant without cervical mucus!

For several months I had noticed a huge decrease in the amount of fertile mucus I was producing. The cycle after I began taking Phyto Methylate, I noticed a dramatic and sudden increase in cervical mucus and I was very excited. This increase has persisted every month following! I knew folate was great for this, but it was still a happy surprise to see these results when mucus wasn’t on my radar as a reason for taking it. 

Overall, 5 stars. I recommend it.
