MTHFR

Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase

MTHFR stands for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. It's getting attention due to a genetic mutation that may lead to high levels of homocysteine in the blood and low levels of folate and other vitamins.

MTHFR is a gene that specifically codes for turning folic acid and folate. It activates a B vitamin.

MTHFR is a gene that specifically codes for turning folic acid and folate. It activates a B vitamin. It ends up having a big influence on health. At least 40% of people have at least 1 gene variation on MTHFR, which basically means they can’t as effectively turn folic acid into folate. If we can’t do this, we become more susceptible to everything from migraines, heart disease, blood clots, miscarriages, abnormal pap smears, etc.

It used to be thought that our genes directly and absolutely resulted in certain health issues. We now know that just because our relatives suffered certain medical conditions, this doesn’t mean we will definitely experience those same conditions. That’s because our genes are turned on or off, so to speak, by influences in our environment – our diet, exposure to toxins, exposure to stress in general, nutrient levels, hormone balance, blood sugar levels, INFLAMMATION, OXIDATIVE STRESS, and so much more.
