I was super excited to see this article today about a possible treatment for hypermobility and associated connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS).

I only wish they had mentioned the dosage of Folate that was used with their patients. I found a link to the full journal article here: https://www.cell.com/heliyon/fulltext/S2405-8440(23)02594-X?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS240584402302594X%3Fshowall%3Dtrue
