Q:  What is the Folate Trap & Functional B 12 deficiency ? Why is my B12 high yet I am not utilizing it?

ag5zfnJlc291cmNlLXFuYXITCxIGQW5zd2VyGICAgIC4s5EKDA Folate and B12 Question: What is the Folate Trap & Functional B 12 deficiency ? Why is my B12 high yet I am not utilizing it? Answer: Dr. James, et. al., has found that folate trapping may occur when the MTR/MTRR is inefficient and/or there is a CBS up regulation. Since folate cannot be utilized properly under such conditions, it is not pulled through the cycle, as it should, which leads to a substantial build up. Therefore, high folate or B-12 levels may indicate a functional deficiency in that you may have enough of these critical nutrients, yet you cannot utilize them appropriately. http://resqua.com/702188759/what-is-the-folate-trap-functional-b-12-deficiency-why-is-my-b12-high-yet-i-am-not-utilizing-it
