TLC Physician's MTHFR (Methyl-folate)
Some individuals cannot effectively methylate (convert folic acid into its bioactive form) thus are still at risk of folic acid deficiency. This supplement supports methylation, DNA biosynthesis, homoscysteine metabolism, & nervous system function.
Before taking this product you should verify that you have a polymorphism in your MTHFR gene. Anyone who believes they have a methylation issue should have the blood test done- most labs can perform this test. Click here to find out more.
It is a very common mutation and those who are homozygous for either of the two common polymorphisms will only be slightly less efficient at methylation.
However someone who is heterozygous (that has two of the same polymorphisms) may have up to a 70 percent deficit. In the same manner, someone who is termed compound heterozygous will have one each of the common polymorphism. These patients will typically be poorer methylators than those with only one polymorphism, but not to the degree that someone who is heterozygous will be.
Symptoms, family or personal history that warrant testing and subsequent supplementation:
ADHD, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, autism, recurrent miscarriages, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, addictions, diabetes, down syndrome, thrombotic events (pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, strokes, heart attacks), chronic fatigue syndrome, spina bifida or other neural tube disorders, Parkinson's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines or chronic pain disorders.
Take 1 per day only as directed by a physician.
