Methylfolate Plus is a methylated B vitamin supplement that repairs the MTHFR genetic SNP, or mutation. In the DNA project funded by the federal government, it was discovered that there are 1.5 million genetic SNP’s- we only know how to fix 2 of them and MTHFR is one of the two. More than 50% of people in the United States alone have this genetic SNP, which is identifiable via a blood test.
If you do have the MTHFR mutation, then your body is not able to methylate, which is a process that plays a crucial role in many functions throughout our body. The MTHFR gene mutation can also lead to high levels of homocysteine, which is a marker of inflammation that can eventually lead to plaquing in the arteries and other inflammatory conditions. Unfortunately, there is no dietary fix to high homocysteine or correction of the MTHFR mutation. There is, however, a solution! The solution to this genetic SNP is some form of a methylated B vitamin, such as Methylfolate Plus. You will likely need to take a methylated supplement long-term so make sure to check with your practitioner before starting!
