A customer who received a complimentary sample bottle posted an insightful and telling product review this morning that I want to share with anyone who has the MTHFR genetic mutation.
Please note, I received a free sample of this product. What follows, however, is my honest review.
I learned about magnesium supplementation first from a friend who told me about the book The Magnesium Miracle (http://amzn.to/1XCg9M0) and then learned a lot more from the Magnesium Advocacy Group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/MagnesiumAdvocacy/). I started taking the Jigsaw Magnesium (aka "Green Apple Magnesium") after seeing this website.
I started taking Jigsaw magnesium and noticed that even at half the recommended dose (2 pills), I would get very shaky and nauseated so I reduced it to just 1 pill. I took one a day for a few months.
My new mag regimen coincided with some extremely stressful life events so it wasn't until I ran out and realized I had forgotten to reorder it that I noticed my daily horrible temper flares were always immediately preceded by my morning dose of magnesium. I quit taking it and my rages disappeared.
I could not figure out what was happening. Google helped me figure things out. I had genetic testing done a couple of years ago and knew I had the MTHFR gene mutation but I had no idea it could cause the problems I was having with the original Jigsaw Magnesium formula! Here are a couple of links others may find relevant and/or interesting.
For the last few days, I have been taking the new Jigsaw Magnesium B-Free and have had a lot more energy, no nausea, and no rages. It has been great! I am so happy to be able to take this type of magnesium (malate) again without the horrible side effects I had from the previous formula. I will definitely keep ordering this.
I also must say that I am very, very impressed with the level of customer service Jigsaw provides. My order shipped within a couple of hours of ordering and arrived in 2 days. The staff are very responsive and polite. All around great company, great products! I was already recommending them to everyone I know! I'll have to tell everyone, especially my MTHFR friends, about this new formula!

If you, or anyone you know, has had negative reactions taking supplements containing vitamins B6, B12, and/or Folate, please contact the makers of that supplement to report it, and then also contact healthcare professional and talk to them about MTHFR genetic mutation.
We are doing what we can at Jigsaw Health to alert consumers to this issue.
