If you suffer from any of these symptoms then you may be one of the 50% of the population that has a change in their genetic Sequencing and have something called MTHFR.

MTHFR stands for Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase so we call it MTHFR, for short. MTHFR is an enzyme that converts the folate from the food that you eat into the active or usable form of folate (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) that the body can use.

People with this altered gene expression have anywhere from 15% to 70% loss of function. Why is this important? Well MTHFR is needed for methylation which takes place in every single cell and organ in our bodies. Without sufficient methylation the many pathways don't function as they should.

If the neurological pathway is affected you will see symptoms of being susceptible to Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Behavioural disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Addictive Behaviours such as Gambling, Smoking, Drugs and Alcoholism.
