If you have an MTHFR gene SNP, you need supplementation that is bioavailable and doesn’t slow down your methylation processes. MTHFR (short for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) produces an enzyme that helps regulate how well your DNA methylation cycle works. Polymorphisms mean that MTHFR less efficiently converts folic acid (vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 to active forms.
An impaired MTHFR gene can also lead to high homocysteine levels, detoxification challenges, and an increased risk for other problems.
For optimal health, you need bioavailable, methylated nutrients like methylcobalamin (methyl-B12), L-5-MTHF (methylfolate), SAMe, creatine, phosphatidylcholine, and more.
These work to support your body’s methylation processes by reducing the effort needed to activate them.
Your MTHFR gene mutation doesn’t have to confuse you. Get started with MTHFR supplements today. Try Seeking Health’s popular Optimal Multivitamin for comprehensive nutrient support.
