What is MTHFR?
MTHFR is a genetic mutation that at least 40% of the population has. MTHFR or Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase is an enzyme which converts folic acid into methyl-folate (5MTHFR). Methyl-folate is the primary form of folate in our blood and is an important part of the body’s detoxification process doing so through a process called Methylation.
Problems From an MTHFR Gene Mutation
Individuals with low activity of the MTHFR enzyme may present with elevated homocysteine levels, which have been associated with inflammation and heart disease, birth defects, difficult pregnancies, and potentially an impaired ability to detoxify.
Nutrient deficiencies in Folate, B6 and B12 have been associated with elevated homocysteine.
Individuals with the MTHFR gene actually have a difficult time processing folic acid that is present in most cheap supplements and added to processed foods. Some professionals claim that this type of folic acid may even cause a build-up in the body leading to toxicity. Studies have been done that showed folic acid supplements increased cancer risk… one more reason to ditch processed foods and your multivitamin!
