This chart is to be used for those who are in need of methylation support via folate, choline, TMG (betaine), and B12, but need to know whether they are taking a methylated form or non-methylated form.
Some individuals are sensitive to methylated nutrients, so it may be recommended by their doctor to start out with taking non-methylated nutrients and slowly introducing methylated nutrients, until they work their way up to a fully methylated nutrient, which is the most bioavailable form in terms of support methylation processes (i.e. methylfolate, methylcobalamin, TMG, choline).
