If you are seeing this otherwise, please enjoy this information for your own education.
MTHFR genetic variant: the “methylation gene.”
This gene controls your ability to methylate, a key process that is crucial for genetic expression in every cell of your body, as well as detoxification, balancing biochemistry and hormones, DNA repair, etc. It determines if a gene gets turned on or off.
Tendencies: You sometimes feel anxious and depressed but other times focused and efficient. You often feel low energy, anemia and/or have a hard time losing weight.
You may suffer from performance anxiety, a hair-trigger temper and/or headaches. You likely feel better after eating green-leafy veggies, like a salad.
Pros: determined, alert, productive, focused, self-driven.
Cons: depression, anxiety, autoimmune conditions, migraines, autism, pregnancy complications, anemia, weight gain, birth defects and cardiovascular conditions..
Methylated B’s: B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin), B2 (riboflavin)
