What the Heck is with That MTHFR?
What is the MTHFR gene mutation, and why does it matter? In this episode Dr. Rosario answers these questions, discussing this mutation which affects an estimated 40% of the population in America. She teaches the role that folate plays, the importance of methylation, and the impact that stress and toxicity in the body can have on your ability to methylate properly, regardless of whether or not a mutation is present. You’ll learn about the possible health effects of improper methylation, how you can find out if this is something you have, and what you can do to minimize the effects it can have on your physical and mental health and wellbeing. Spoiler: Your folate levels aren’t the only thing that can be impacted.
