Genetic Research Uncovers MTHFR Mutation & Antidote
Genetic research has uncovered some amazing new facts that could make a big difference for your health and quality of life like it did for mine. For years I suffered from a myriad of health issues that doctors could never diagnose (check out my story for more details). Through the Human Genome Project's discovery of MTHFR, I not only found a treatment, but I also found a scientific explanation for my poor health. Studies have predicted that over 40% of the world’s population has this known genetic defect called MTHFR (or Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase – try to say that 5 times fast, it’s not easy).
This MTHFR gene mutation affects how our bodies process B vitamins for absorption and use; this biological process is called methylation. Methylation is simply the transformation of food into enzymes or 'active elements' the body's cells can directly and immediately use.
A healthy MTHFR gene is responsible for converting folic acid into Methylfolate (the ‘active element’ form of Folate that your body uses). Did you know that your cells cannot actually use folic acid? Folic acid must get converted into Methylfolate before the body’s cells can use it. This conversion from folic acid to Methylfolate is a 4-step process, but if someone has an MTHFR genetic defect, then the enzyme transformation between steps 3 and 4 is mutated which causes many systemic problems.
