I'm wondering how many people would simply respond to folic acid supplementation vs. deplin.
I have been reading a bit about the so called dysfunctional gene which involves the conversion of folates to methylfolate. Apparently even if you have the dysfunctional genes, this only results in a small reduction in the ability of the body to produce methylfolate. If this is true, I would think that folic acid supplementation would also help. There are some studies showing that prozac + folic acid is better than folic acid alone. Alas, some people need a "prescription".
