The MTHFR gene interferes with your body’s ability to process (convert) folate, which can lead to very high homocysteine levels resulting in an increased risk of stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even bipolar disorder.
If your homocysteine levels are high, you probably have the MTHFR gene variant (up to 40-50% of people have this genetic variation!)
To reduce homocysteine levels and compensate for the MTHFR variant, take B vitamin supplements in their active forms – no conversion needed! Vitamin B as pyridoxal-5-phosphate: 25 mg Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin: 1,000 mcg folate as L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate: 1,360 mcg DFE.
