#MTHFR - Looks like I’m shortening mofo, but I’m not.... HA!! 😂
More than 1/2 of us have this and if you or your partner have it, you likely have passed it on to your kids too, but what IS it!? What does it look like?! For the estimated 60% of people affected by this gene mutation, a curse is exactly what it can feel like!! Most don’t even KNOW that they have this gene mutation that causes an inability to process certain forms of key nutrients, and makes it very difficult for their body to detox. People with the MTHFR mutation are unable to “methylate” ingredients like Folic Acid, as well as certain B vitamins, and instead, these ingredients turn toxic in their body. Methylation is a very complex thing but simply put, it’s the ability to process toxins and hormones. When the methylation process is inhibited for any reason, Glutathione levels drop, making the body more susceptible to oxidative stress, and far less tolerant to toxins. This lack of detoxification can lead to all kinds of behavioral, mental, and even physical illnesses or disabilities.
Here’s a short list of how MTHFR can present in health issues: 💥Vascular disease
💥Neural Tube Defects
The methylation cycle is tied directly to our serotonin (happy hormone) and dopamine (reward and pleasure neurotransmitter) levels. Individuals with MTHFR often need higher doses of Vitamin D as well because they lack the ability to absorb it properly. It’s crucial that they find a good methylated multi-vitamin, as well as a probiotic, and omega supplement that have bio-available nutrients they can readily and quickly absorb.
The best news: methylated vitamins and nutrients are beneficial for EVERYONE, even if you DON’T have any form of genetic mutation.... no one is excluded, yet everyone is covered!! ❤️ I am so glad our Xfactor Plus (for adults!) and Children's chewable are fully methylated.
Friends, this could be YOU. I can help!! 😘
